[The lifetime of Greece is quantity 2 -- of the 11 quantity 'The tale of Civilization' Series]

the second one quantity of Will Durant's Pulitzer Prize-winning sequence, The lifetime of Greece: the tale of Civilization, quantity 2 chronicles the heritage of historic Greek civilization.

the following Durant tells the entire tale of Greece, from the times of Crete's large Aegean empire to the ultimate extirpation of the final remnants of Greek liberty, overwhelmed less than the heel of an implacably forward-marching Rome. The dry trivialities of battles and sieges, of tortuous statecraft of tyrant and king, get the minor emphasis in what's preeminently a vibrant sport of Greek tradition, delivered to the reader throughout the medium of supple, lively prose.

In this masterful paintings, readers will research about:
*the siege of Troy
*the nice city-states of Athens and Sparta
*the heroes of Homer's epics
*the gods and lesser deities of Mount Olympus
*the teachings of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle
*the loss of life of Alexander the good
