Description - Who's Who in the Greek World by John Hazel

Was there such a person as Homer? Who were the key figures in the first democracy of the Western World? Who is the father of tragedy? Who is the father of history? Of all the world's ancient civilisations, it is perhaps of Ancient Greece that has the strongest hold over the modern imagination. The history, philosophy and literature continue to intrigue and enthrall. Now John Hazel has compiled the definitive biographical guide to the Greek and Hellenistic world from 750 BC to the end of the Roman Empire. The lives of Alexander the Great, Socrates and Plato are included, but so too are those of lesser-known figures such as Bacchylides the lyric poet; Chares the general; and the traitor Ephialtes, giving a thorough and fascinating overview of life in Ancient Greece. Cross-references,a select bibliography and a glossary of terms make this an excellent introduction to the world of the ancient Greeks and an invaluable reference resource.
