Description
The ancient Greeks gave us our alphabet and much of our scientific, medical, and cultural language; they invented democracy, atomic theory, and the rules of logic and geometry; laid the foundations of philosophy, history, tragedy, and comedy; and debated everything from the good life to the best form of government, and how to make sense of foreigners. In his entertaining and illuminating follow-up to Veni, Vidi, Vici, classicist Peter Jones tells the epic story of ancient Greece—from the Trojan War to the rise of the Roman Empire—by introducing the major periods and figures of the age, including Homer, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Alexander the Great, Euclid, and Archimedes.

"Like everything else Jones writes, Eureka! is packed with intriguing nuggets for novices and experts alike.... He flits between the beautiful and the banal, never missing a good story, whether it is about glorious death or industrious donkeys."—Times (London)
