Representative Chapters in Ancient History is not just another set of reference books or an attempt to completely summarize the ancient world. It is meant to be read as a lively and realistic portrait of classical antiquity. These books represent eras of ancient history at a level of detail usually reserved for full scale accounts, making it a great text both for college students and for the general reader. The approach is evolutionary. Students are given a thorough grounding in the origin and development of the major ancient Mediterranean civilizations so that later development can be more easily understood. The books move from agriculture, Egypt, Greece, early Rome, to the historical Jesus. The last two chapters use Justinian to look at Byzantium. This thorough and detailed account will inevitably inspire students to read more on their own and become engaged in this fascinating history. (Sold Only as a Set)
