I read a French translation by Juliette Bertrand, published in the book was written in The author, in his one-page introduction, says: "I have entitled this account "History of the Greeks" because, unlike my "History of Rome," it is a history of individuals rather than one of a people's or of a State.
I don't pretend to have said anything new or have an original interpretation of what is already known. My only ambition is to offer my readers an opportunity to access the ancie I read a French translation by Juliette Bertrand, published in the book was written in My only ambition is to offer my readers an opportunity to access the ancient Greeks without experiencing boredom or fatigue.
I hope I have succeeded. The history is presented in the form of relatively brief chapters, each focused on one or more related noteworthy personalities, ordered chronologically. As opposed to say, just reading Herodotus, this book's focus is not solely on military exploits and political successions, but rather on the culture and the lives of individuals.
There is also a constant reference to women and their role in Greek society, be it as spouses, lovers, or individuals of their own right. Montanelli is also interested in the structure of society, and why it ultimately couldn't survive. He is appreciative of Greek culture, but does not idealize it. His sketches also highlight the brutality of constant wars, the income inequalities, the gaps between the educated and the uneducated, and the economic reliance of the high society on slavery.
There is an excellent chronology at the end, but it is a pity that there is no index, nor does he list sources, except occasionally in the body of the text. This is too bad, because what makes this history interesting is the way of the author pieces together the complete lives of individuals, from birth to death, by bringing together details from various sources, including anecdotes out of comedies.
All of this makes for entertaining. The only difficulty is keeping track of so many Greek names. So, even if you already think you know the history of Greek civilization, you will find this page book a worthwhile refresher.
And you will walk away with a greater appreciation of how much of our culture even many of our Christian ideals stem from these Greeks in the VI-Vth cent.

But I like history, and this book was entertaining for me.
Books about history most of the times are boring, full of details. This was one was very interesting for me.
