Summary
"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)
