Reviews

"Introducing the Ancient Greeks is informative and inspiring. With deep expertise and unabashed enthusiasm, Edith Hall surveys the whole history of the ancient Greeks and pinpoints the shared traits that explain their enduring achievements." -- Sheila Murnaghan, professor of classics studies and Alfred Reginald Allen Memorial Professor of Greek, University of Pennsylvania "In this vivacious and learned book, Edith Hall distills the essence of Hellenic culture to discover the secrets of its success and stamina. Filled with striking anecdotes and little-known facts, this book will delight any student of the ancient Greek world." -- Adrienne Mayor, Stanford University, and author of The Poison King "Edith Hall's characteristically original approach to the world of classical antiquity is on full display in this introductory survey of the ancient Greeks and their enduring accomplishments." -- Froma Zeitlin, Ewing Professor of Greek Language and Literature, emerita, Princeton University "In Edith Hall's new and groundbreaking study of ancient Greek culture, society, and mentality over a millennium and more, from Agamemnon to Constantine, she acutely identifies and brilliantly explains why we simply cannot do without the ancient Greeks." -- Paul Cartledge, A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture, University of Cambridge, and the author of The Greeks: A Portrait of Self and Others "[Hall's] book is a hearty, delightful voyage through 2,000 years of Greek history, written with wit and verve and deep insight." -- Mark Gamin - Cleveland Plain Dealer "Penetrating...Ms. Hall is an engaging writer and an acute scholar." -- James Romm - Wall Street Journal
