Synopsis

In Search of the Greeks by James Renshaw

In Search of the Greeks is a lively and informative introduction to the societies of Classical Greece. Making extensive use of ancient sources and illustrated with over a hundred photographs, drawings, maps and plans, this book introduces six key areas of ancient Greece: Greek religion, the Olympic Games, Athenian drama, Athenian society, Athenian democracy, and Sparta. Each chapter can be read independently, but there are many cross-references and links between each of them. There are useful Appendices on Attica and Athens, Greek currency values, Greek musical instruments, and the Greek calendar.Review questions throughout this book challenge students to read further and reflect on some of the most important social, political and cultural issues of classical Greece. Many topics raise issues of contemporary relevance, such as the rights of citizens in a democracy, forced marriage, and approaches to education. Essential reading for teachers and students of Classical Civilisation, this book will also be of considerable interest to those involved in drama and citizenship courses.
