The Sweep of History

book cover image Introducing the Ancient Greeks

Can ancient history sweep us off our feet? The Daily Telegraph seems to think so. "Edith Hall makes Introducing the Ancient Greeks", says the Telegraph, "a kind of concerto for orchestra, with different instruments picking up the big themes."

It adds, "her writing is too naturally engaging for the book to be stuck for long with essay-like treatments ... the reader quickly comes to appreciate the sweep and scholarship of her project."
