Encyclopedia of the Ancient Greek World
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
A nicely prepared reference for high school, college, and general readers, covering over 2,000 years, from the beginnings of Minoan civilization to the Roman annexation of mainland Greece in 146 B.C. The clearly written entries range from about 100 to 3,000 words, discussing the main points of each topic and its importance. Illustrated with attractive, unobtrusive line drawings. Thoroughly cross-referenced and indexed. A future edition could be improved with pronunciation guidance and a classified bibliography.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 272-275) and index.
