Classical Greece and RomeBook - 2002
The era of the classical world, lasting from about 500 B.C. to roughly A.D. 500, was one of the most productive and crucial in history. During these years, great civilizations rose and/or reached heir apogees across the globe. In more than thirty concise, informative essays, noted scholars here tell how the Greeks and Romans gained control of the Mediterranean world, how the Chinese united their country's warring states, and how powerful kingdoms arose in Africa, India, and Central America.
