The Story of Civilization, Vol II: The Life of Greece by Will Durant.

[Read by Stefan Rudnicki]

[The Life of Greece is Volume 2 -- of the eleven volume 'The Story of Civilization' Series]

The second volume of Will Durant's Pulitzer Prize-winning series, The Life of Greece: The Story of Civilization, Volume 2 chronicles the history of ancient Greek civilization.

Here Durant tells the whole story of Greece, from the days of Crete's vast Aegean empire to the final extirpation of the last remnants of Greek liberty, crushed under the heel of an implacably forward-marching Rome. The dry minutiae of battles and sieges, of tortuous statecraft of tyrant and king, get the minor emphasis in what is preeminently a vivid recreation of Greek culture, brought to the reader through the medium of supple, vigorous prose.

In this masterful work, readers will learn about:
*the siege of Troy
*the great 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 death of Alexander the Great
