This book is about much more than `the glory that was Greece'. In this fresh appraisal, replacing the original Legacy of Greece edited by Sir Richard Livingstone in 1921, fourteen distinguished contributors, all specialists in their field, describe a particular aspect of Greek culture, andthen assess what later generations have made of this valuable inheritance. The result is a lucid and succinct introduction to how the ancient Greeks lived and thought, and to their influence on the world we know today. The wide range of topics covered includes politics, literature, history,education, philosophy, science, myth, and art and architecture.
