In this revised edition Matthew Dillon and Lynda Garland have expanded the chronological range of Ancient Greece to include the Greek world of the fourth century. The sourcebook now ranges from the first lines of Greek literature down to the death of Alexander the Great. As for the previous editions of this text, this sourcebook will be markedly different from others in that the authors are aware of the wide range of ancient sources which can be utilized.The scope is full, covering not only the chronological, political history of ancient Greece, but dealing with numerous aspects of Greek society, such as slavery, religion, and women. The linking commentaries will provide students with the necessary information to understand the source extracts and what they reveal about the ancient Greeks. The sources chosen focus on the main cities of ancient Greece - Athens and Sparta - but also draw in a wide range of material concerning the Greeks in Egypt, Italy, Sicily, Asia Minor and the Black Sea. The sources are chosen not only from the major literary authors but cover a wide selection of writers, and also are taken from a variety of sources: inscriptions, graffiti, law codes, epitaphs, decrees, drama and poetry, and many non-Athenian authors are included. Ancient Greece, third edition, will be a definitive collection of source material on the society and culture of the Greeks. It will be the only sourcebook to cover definitively this period of Greek history.
