The Life of Greece

A History of Greek Civilization from the Beginnings, and of Civilization in the Near East from the Death of Alexander, to the Roman Conquest

The Story of Civilization: Book #2
By Will Durant
Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki / 32 hours 36 minutes

The second volume of Will Durant’s Pulitzer Prize–winningseries, The Life of Greece: The Story of Civilization, Volume2 chronicles the history of ancient Greek civilization. Here Durant tellsthe whole story of Greece, from the days of Crete’s vast Aegean empire to thefinal extirpation of the last remnants of Greek liberty, crushed under the heelof 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 preeminentlya vivid recreation of Greek culture, brought to the reader through the mediumof 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 life of Alexander the Great
