This comprehensive textbook is divided into three sections:
Section A: Living in Ancient Greece (800–454 BCE) examines the social, political and economic features of Archaic Greece, everyday life in ancient Athens and Sparta, and the causes and consequences of the Greco–Persian Wars.
Section B: The Peloponnesian War (460–404 BCE) explores the conflict between the Delian League (led by Athens) and the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) that ultimately reshaped the ancient Greek world. Chapters cover the key stages of the war—the Archidamian War, the Peace of Nicias, the Sicilian Expedition and the Decelean (or Ionian) War. The In Focus pages profile Pericles, Alcibiades and Lysander in detail.
