Western civilization owes much to Greece for its concepts of democracy, comedy and tragedy, geometry, and the Olympics. This colorfully-illustrated reference for young adults covers major periods of Greek history from the Bronze Age and Minoan culture through the destruction of Troy, to the rise of democracy in Athens and the empire of Alexander the Great. Boxes showcase Greek archeological sites, legends, religion, philosophers, and the alphabet. The volume includes a foreword by a US professor of classical and modern languages, literatures, and cultures; time lines; color maps; and glossaries of terms and major historical figures.
