The Greek World 479-323 BC has been an indispensable guide to classical Greek history since its first publication nearly thirty years ago. Now Simon Hornblower has comprehensively revised and partly rewritten his original text, bringing it up-to-date for yet another generation of readers. In particular, this fourth edition takes full account of recent and detailed scholarship on Greek poleis across the Hellenic world, allowing for further development of the key theme of regional variety across the Mediterranean and beyond. Other extensive changes include a new sub-chapter on Islands, a completely updated bibliography, and revised citation of epigraphic material relating to the fourth-century BC. With valuable coverage of the broader Mediterranean world in which Greek culture flourished, as well as close examination of Athens, Sparta, and the other great city-states of Greece itself, this fourth edition of a classic work is a more essential read than ever before.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the fourth edition:

'The Greek World has thus far endured the test of time and remains one of the leading textbooks on Greek History, and I have no doubt that it will continue to do so for many years to come.' - Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Praise for the third edition (2002):

'To write a standard history which contains the essential material and yet is interesting and says things which have not been said before is one of the hardest tasks. Hornblower has performed it excellently.' - Times Literary Supplement

'Hornblower's excellence as a historian, and his wide and responsible use of sources, together with attractive packaging, re-establishes the book's position as a benchmark for historians ... It is packed to the brim ... with an abundance of erudite observations.' - Scholia Reviews
