A History of Greece to the Death of Alexander the Great, Vol II


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 20 reviews)

J.B. Bury wrote his “History of Greece” before World War I, but it is such a good overview of classical Greek history that the third edition was still being used as a college textbook in the late 1960′s. In the newer editions, a co-author rewrote the material dealing with the early centuries where there have been new archeological developments, but the later chapters and Bury’s framework were retained essentially unchanged. Bury writes in a lucid, easily understood style that entertains as it educates. The book covers artistic and literary development, as well as politics and war, and its field of view includes western Asia Minor, the Agean archipelago, and “Greater Greece” (Sicily and Southern Italy).

excellent!! highly recommended


(4 stars)

Graham Redman... I really appreciate your narration and the time you put in to speaking clearly and specifically . And as far as differences of pronounced words between different readers... It's a free source of information. if you don't know the proper pronunciations... look it up

Thank you so much


(5 stars)

Really motivates me to find a good on line map of the wars in Sicily. Also , a nice end summary of Macedonian army postings in Asia

Great content; difficult to listen to reader for Ch 15 and especially painful in Ch 16 parts 1- 5. Sorry, I tried many times….

Such valuable knowledge!

As per usual, JB Bury delivers another easy to read (or rather "easy to listen" narrative
