The Greeks A Great Adventure By Isaac Asimov Book was published In 1965 and traces the history, politics, culture, and influence of Greece from 4,000 B.C. to 1964 This 1st edition, out of printthis rare vintage book is as visually pleasing as it is to dive into.
No nation in history has left the world such a heritage as the Greeks. It seems scarcely credible that so sparse a people, settled on the rocky islands and peninsulas of the Aegean Sea, could have accomplished so much; but they excelled and whatever they set their hands to, warfare or politics, art or athletics, literature or philosophy. They added a new dimension to the human spirit: their ideals, their heroes have become our own.
A perfect gift for a curious and contemplative mind.
