KIRKUS REVIEW

The lively use of original sources--letters, plays, speeches, graffiti--translated by the author makes this a vivid (as well as scholarly) social history of Greek culture. Lindsay has written numerous works including Catullus and Song of a Falling World. Here he begins with Minoan and Mycenean Greece, continues through the great classical and Hellenic periods, and concludes with the twilight of Byzantium.
