Ventures into Greek history ( Book )
8 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a collection of essays by seventeen international scholars, dedicated to Professor Nicholas Hammond. The scope of the book is fourth-century Greek and Macedonian history, archaeology, and source studies, and is divided into these three sections. Sources studied include Thucydides, Diodorus Siculus, Arrian, and Polybius; a new archaeological site with plates is presented, as is a hitherto unpublished krater from Macedonia, and the use of numismatic evidence is used to discuss the earlier Argead monarchy in a novel and important way. Historical essays centre on Philip II's diplomacy; a new interpretation of the controversy surrounding Alexander the Great's request for deification; Antipater, a long neglected figure; a new evaluation of the Greek attitude to Macedonian hegemony; Agis III, and important and new implications for Macedonian manpower; and even Xenophon's exile. The essays represent the most recent contributions to scholarship in these areas, and exhibit a freshness in style making both appealing and important reading

Demosthenes of Athens and the fall of classical Greece by Ian Worthington ( Book )
11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Demosthenes (384-322 BC) profoundly shaped one of the most eventful epochs in antiquity. His political career spanned three decades, during which time Greece fell victim to Macedonian control, first under Philip II and then Alexander the Great. Demosthenes' courageous defiance of Macedonian imperialism cost him his life but earned him a reputation as one of history's outstanding patriots. He also enjoyed a brilliant and lucrative career as a speechwriter, and his rhetorical skills are still emulated today by statesmen and politicians. Yet he was a sickly child with a challenging speech impediment, who was swindled out of much of his family's estate by unscrupulous guardians. His story is therefore one of triumph over adversity

"This course is taught chronologically, covering Greek history in the Archaic and Classical periods, from 750 B.C.E. to the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C.E. However, it is not the "usual" type of civilization course that tries to cover everything. Instead, by using history and society as a backdrop, it focuses on three major aspects that are as much a mainstay of our tradition as that of the Greeks: democracy, law, and imperialism."--Course guidebook (p. 1)

This course is taught chronologically, covering Greek history in the Archaic and Classical periods, from 750 B.C.E. to the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C.E.

The course traces the origins of these three themes in great detail, critically examining their workings, considering what these meant for the Greeks, and comparing and contrasting ancient forms and practices with our contemporary world
