Free History BONUS Inside!

From about the 9th to 5th centuries BCE, the population of Greece grew unprecedently large, expanding from about 800,000 people to as many as 13 million. About a quarter million of these lived in Athens. The average size of urban households during this period grew considerably, a fact that suggests that food was suddenly available in excesses sufficient to keep larger families healthy and alive much more effectively than just a millennium earlier. Bigger families meant bigger armies and larger communities that would eventually grow into the metropolises of Classical Greece.

This incredible stretch of time is called Classical Antiquity; the age in which Western civilization first realized its potential and place in the world. The era brought on big changes for all the people of the Mediterranean. Thanks to new agricultural methods, seafaring technology, and trade, great civilizations sprang up around the sea, building large urban centers full of artists, merchants, political thinkers, scientists, and philosophers. As Greco-Roman culture grew, the relationships each city and realm had with one another also developed and changed.

In Classical Antiquity: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Greece and Rome and How These Civilizations Influenced Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia, you will discover topics such as
  • A Blind Poet from Ionia
  • Pythagoras
  • Athens, Greece
  • The Greek Pantheon
  • The Expulsion of the Persians
  • Slavery
  • The Golden Age of Athens
  • Pericles at War

Product Description:
Read this for free with your Kindle Unlimited Membership
Greece is a colorful country and has always been the target of many tourists looking to have a relaxing time. However, what many people do not seem to know is that Greece also packs a rich history – all lying beneath the beautiful landscapes and beaches.
Its history starts thousands of years before the Christian calendar was used – and each moment represents a cultural artifact that enriched more than a single country.
Greece went through many wars – big and small. Some were fought because certain conquerors had their eyes on the land – whereas others were supposed to serve as means of provoking a change in the country (e.g. the civil wars). However, while it did not emerge unscathed from every war, Greece still managed to recover.
As a history enthusiast – or simply, a Hellenophile – Greek history is certainly something you have to invest time in.
Buy this book now to find out more about Greece and it's fascinating history! You will be glad you did.

The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece (The Princeton History of the Ancient World Book 1)

By Josiah Ober

Princeton University Press
Released: 2015-05-04
Kindle Edition (435 pages)

The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece (The Princeton History of the Ancient World Book 1)
 
Product Description:

Lord Byron described Greece as great, fallen, and immortal, a characterization more apt than he knew. Through most of its long history, Greece was poor. But in the classical era, Greece was densely populated and highly urbanized. Many surprisingly healthy Greeks lived in remarkably big houses and worked for high wages at specialized occupations. Middle-class spending drove sustained economic growth and classical wealth produced a stunning cultural efflorescence lasting hundreds of years.

Why did Greece reach such heights in the classical period—and why only then? And how, after "the Greek miracle" had endured for centuries, did the Macedonians defeat the Greeks, seemingly bringing an end to their glory? Drawing on a massive body of newly available data and employing novel approaches to evidence, Josiah Ober offers a major new history of classical Greece and an unprecedented account of its rise and fall.

Ober argues that Greece's rise was no miracle but rather the result of political breakthroughs and economic development. The extraordinary emergence of citizen-centered city-states transformed Greece into a society that defeated the mighty Persian Empire. Yet Philip and Alexander of Macedon were able to beat the Greeks in the Battle of Chaeronea in 338 BCE, a victory made possible by the Macedonians' appropriation of Greek innovations. After Alexander's death, battle-hardened warlords fought ruthlessly over the remnants of his empire. But Greek cities remained populous and wealthy, their economy and culture surviving to be passed on to the Romans—and to us.

A compelling narrative filled with uncanny modern parallels, this is a book for anyone interested in how great civilizations are born and die.
