"Of dozens of books on Greece, this enthusiastic, tolerant, and eminently readable volume is the one I recommend as an introduction." -- New Leader (London)
"My Greeks were neither sophisticated layabouts nor pious fatalists, and least of all were they portentous gurus brooding over the lost Secrets of the Ancients. They were a resilient, sceptical, cheeky people, whose distinctive contribution to our history was to combine a readiness to ask 'Why?' and 'Why not?' with a conviction that only sane, reasoned and clearly expounded answers to those questions were worth listening to." In this book, Kenneth Dover introduces the people and culture of ancient Greece.
