The World of Herodotus, by Aubrey de Selincourt, paperback (very good condition)
Herodotus himself provides a strong focus through his Histories to this fascinating account of the Greek world from the eighth to the fifth centuries BC - both the geographical world that Herodotus saw in his travels and the complex of thought, feeling and tradition which Herodotus crystallized. This reprint of the 1962 book analyzes Herodotus' works against the background of classical Greece. It meanders across all facets of Greek life--art, politics, wars, manners, and so on--to give you a feel for the spirit of the time.
