Volume III of The Cambridge Ancient History was first published in 1925 in one volume. The new edition has expanded to such an extent, owing to the immense amount of new information now available, that it has had to be divided into three parts. Volume III Part 1 opens with a survey of the Balkans north of Greece in the Prehistoric period. This is the first time such a survey has been published of this area which besides its intrinsic interest is important for its influence on the cultures of the Aegean and Anatolia. The rest of the book is devoted to the tenth to the eighth centuries B. C. In Greece and the Aegean the main theme is the gradual regeneration from the Dark Age and the emergence of a society in which can be seen the beginnings of the city-state. During the same period in Western Asia and the Middle East the Kingdoms of Assyria and Babylonia rise to power, the Urartians appear, and in Palestine the kingdoms of Israel and Judah flourish. In Egypt the country's fortunes revive briefly under Shoshenq I. The final chapter in this part deals with the languages of Greece and the Balkans and with the invention and spread of alphabetic writing.

An overview of the process whereby Octavian and his friends set the Mediterranean basin to rights, by their lights. Now dated, as it was written by 1938, but still useful. The story continues until the end of the Julian Dynasty. (Nero). قراءة التقييم بأكمله

The best in the series—Athens—the birthplace of western civilisation. The growth of Athens, its leadership of Greece, and then the treacherous attack by the Spartans, financed by Persia! قراءة التقييم بأكمله
