Reviews about Encyclopedia of the Ancient Greek World (2):
Hellblade
This book is amazing! I bought it to accomodate my reading of Philosophy and I am very impressed with the level of detail that goes into each entry. It doesn't just skimp like some other 2-3 paragraph per section encyclopedia's I have. It will put pages of information in front of you. Peloponnese War, easily 3 pages, Alexander the Great, 3 pages. Slavery, I think is 2 pages. Very satisfied.
