Review Text

  • By Lawrence on November 6, 2010

    Richard's book is one of the best short introductions to the Greco-Roman world I have discovered in nearly 2 decades of teaching world history courses at both the college and advanced high school levels. Thus I highly recommend this book and have adopted it as a required supplemental textbook in my AP World History classes. Every chapter begins with an extremely useful section of historical context, which places the biographical subject of each chapter "in their world" as it were, so the uninitiated develop an understanding of why their lives and careers mattered, both for their contemporaries and for us today. There are humorous and sometimes racy anecdotes of Roman emperors' eccentric brutality, their licentious behavior, political conspiracies and vindictive reprisals, clear analysis and discussions of the treacherous world of Athenian politics, as well as inspiring accounts of the sacrifices made by early Christians. Chapters conclude with explanations of how these figures impacted the intellect of the Founding Fathers of the United States and thus shaped our world today. This is the kind of book students and their parents should read over and over, to be better informed about a dozen of the most significant figures of the Ancient World.

    Great book if you like history, antiquity - Greek & Roman culture, etc.It's a fast reader, full of historic facts. This is a good book for anyone interested in ancient history and how these 10 men really canged the world they lived in - cosequently shaping the world we live in (I say 10 because I don't care much for the last two...). Overall, a great book: it keeps you interested, it's not dry; every chapter gives the reader a chance to delve into a specific period in history - the times of Homer, Themestocles, Alexander, Caesar, Cicero, so on. Highly recommend it.

    The book was great for the purpose it was intended. The price for this text book was cheaper on-line then it was in the school book store. Will indeed use amazon for all my text book needs.

    Best read for a college class in Humanities. Highly recommended

    This was assigned for a class and then we only did one or two little tidbits out of it, but I read the whole thing! Quite fun and really interesting!

  • By Jeffery Allan Mele on March 7, 2015

    This is an entertaining and easy to read book on many crucial historical figures.

  • By Joy Thoma on March 23, 2015

    bought for a class I was taking. It was reasonable priced.

  • By Guest on February 11, 2013

    I liked the book, and found it useful in preparing for my ancient world history class. I would read it again.
