This text is by no means in any way a comprehensive history of Ancient Greece. Instead, it is truly an introduction in looking at 11 different cities that existed at one time or another in the Greek World and how they functioned, culturally, socially, militarily, etc. As my own knowledge of this time period is sparse, it was decent and not at all over-whelming. On the other hand, someone who already has a deep knowledge and background will likely not find anything useful.
