Any teacher of Classical Civilisation, or, indeed, Ancient Greek will wish to have a copy of this book to hand for easy reference. I have no doubt that it should be the standard classroom text for some time to come ... There is in this volume, and the accompanying website, more than enough resources for any teacher to choose from. * The Classical Review *
In search of the Greeks offers readers a cogent and engaging overview of the ancient Greek world. James Renshaw manages to make complex aspects of Greek society such as religion and class easily accessible, without reducing the richness and endless variety of life in ancient Greece. The book is handsomely produced, with a number of helpful tables and appendices, as well as an excellent range of supporting illustrations that help bring the ancient world to life. Students and general readers alike will learn much about the social, political and cultural life of ancient Greece in this splendid book. -- Jan Haywood is Teaching Fellow in Ancient History at Leicester University, UK
This is probably the most user-friendly textbook-type account of the Ancient Greeks currently on the market. Do not hesitate to join in James Renshaw's open-minded search, in a true spirit of historia, enquiry - the characteristic attitude of the very best of the ancient Greeks themselves. * Paul Cartledge, A.G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture, Cambridge University, UK *
This book has something for everyone: it will be used with profit by school students and undergraduates. Every page shows the hand of a gifted and experienced teacher. Excellent and plentiful colour pictures, maps and text boxes make the new edition a visual treat for the reader. * John Taylor, University of Manchester, UK, formerly Tonbridge School *
