Emphasis on social and domestic life, art and architecture, literature, and philosophy

Summary: Great for an overview
Summary: Presents history in an easy to read way
I bought this book for History of Ancient Greece. Unlike some boring history texts, it is quick reading and easy to understand.
Summary: As Far as Greek Texts go this one is greart!
Ok I love this text. I used this and its sister text on Romans for my ancient history classes. I find that the only down fall of this particular text is that Pomeroy tends to push her agenda in the beginning. However as far as texts on Greek History go, this is the best.
