Summary

Learn why Greece and Rome mattered to people in the past, and why they should matter to us today

The Classical World: All That Matters attempts to address two questions. Firstly, what are the distinctive features of the cultures of Greek and Roman that separate them out from other ancient civilizations. Secondly, why have these cultures been so influential on subsequent societies. It is this dual focus that makes this book distinctive. The first three chapters of the books (Homer, Athens, and Rome) are intended to give a chronological overview of the period. They orientate you to the key places, actors, and historical trends. The remaining chapters focus on some of the most important and influential aspects of Greco-Roman culture.
