New in paperback, this lavishly illustrated, popular reference book draws not only on the original sources but also on the fascinating new approaches to Classical life and civilization that have been developed in recent decades. "Panorama of the ClassicalWorld" brings Greeks, Etruscans and Romans to vivid life for the general reader, and even significantly expands the knowledge of the professional scholar. It is written in a style that is lively and jargon-free without ignoring contemporary debates. This is Classics for a new generation.

Books By Author Nigel Spivey
Classical Civilization, Paperback (November 2016)
A masterly account of how the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome came into being, by a prize-winning Cambridge classicist whose writing is as accessible as it is scholarly.
Greek Sculpture, Paperback (January 2013)
Explains the social function and aesthetic achievement of Greek sculpture from c.750 BC to the end of antiquity.
Ancient Olympics, Paperback (June 2012)
A portrait of the Greek Olympics as they really were - fierce contests between bitter rivals, in which victors won kudos and rewards, and losers faced scorn and even assault. After reading this book, no one will see the Olympics as a graceful display of Greek beauty again, but as war by other means.

Tells the Greek myths as the spellbinding stories they are. This title talks about the Jason and the Argonauts and the travels of Odysseus, about Oedipus's crime and Orpheus's excursion into the underworld, and more.
