A Traveller’s History of Greece provides a concise and authoritative narrative from the country’s earliest begin- nings down to the present day. Its combination of easy reference and good writing makes it an ideal compaion for any tourist or student of Greek culture. A unique title that manages to cover the many facets of Greece and does not just concentrate on its classical past - anyone travelling to Greece for a holiday will find this invaluable. It covers in a clear manner the classical era, the conflict with Persia, the conquest by the Romans, the Byzantine age and the occupation by the Turks; the struggle for independence and the turbulence of the late twentieth century, right up to the sometimes trou- bled economic waters of the twenty-first. This history will help visitors to make sense of modern Greece against the background of its heritage. A gazet- teer, cross-referenced to the main text, highlights the importance of sites, towns and battlefields and details of ancient battles. A chronology lists the significant dates from the Bronze Age to now. Illustrated with maps and line drawings.
