Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Book of the Ancient Greeks is an introduction to the history and civilization of Greece from the coming of the Greeks to the conquest of Corinth by Rome in ad 146. Dorothy Mills again makes history a vital thing and historians, statesmen, and poets of the ancient world living figures. The author s aim in her two books on the Ancient Greeks and the Ancient Romans has been to use such parts of the political history of the Greeks and Romans, of their literature, and of their art as seem to have been the outward and visible signs of the spirit that inspired them. With this book is concluded the series on the ancient world.Dorothy Mills had an uncanny ability to write history that is interesting and at the same time based on sound scholarship. Her direct, engaging approach is valued increasingly by the many parents in our day who are looking for reliable materials for home study, as well as by many private school educators. The highly-prized six volumes of her historical works (see below) have become scarce, and so Dawn Chorus has reprinted them in its effort to offer texts ideally suited to the needs of a new generation of teachers and students. In a world where the quality of education has so deteriorated, may the reissue of this wonderful historical series shine as a beacon to a new generation of young (and not so young) scholars Dawn Chorus publishes five other books by Dorothy Mills: The Book of the Ancient World; The Book of the Ancient Romans; The People of Ancient Israel; The Middle Ages; and Renaissance and Reformation Times. Dawn Chorus has also republished another historical series perfectly suited for home or school use (highly recommended in home-school curricula): The Picturesque Tale of Progress, by Olive Beaupre Miller. It is available in large format (9 volumes), or smaller, double-bound format (5 volumes).
