Lords of the Sea: The Triumph and Tragedy of Ancient Athens - edition reliée, livre de poche

2010, ISBN: 1906142637

[SR: 886048], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781906142636], Gibson Square Books Ltd, Gibson Square Books Ltd, Book, [PU: Gibson Square Books Ltd], 2010-05-27, Gibson Square Books Ltd, 'I cannot tune a harp or play a lyre, but I know how to make a small city great.' Themistocles After almost three thousand years, the brilliant achievements of ancient Athens - the philosophy of Plato, the birth of modern democracy, architecture and theatre - continue to tower over modern culture. Lords of the Sea seeks to write the first modern biography of this extraordinary ancient city from a dramatic new angle - the sea. How did a humble, unremarkable fishing village turn itself into a dazzling democratic empire fuelled by silver, intellect, sheer cunning, sophisticated rowing power, and blood shed during heroic battles, to become the most intrepid free superpower the world has ever known? Lords of the Sea brings together the impressive modern scholarly knowledge of ancient Athens. Its narrative relies on ancient literature (the histories, plays, speeches, poetry, inscriptions), the latest archaeological discoveries (bronze rams, ship houses and docks, naval monuments), first-hand study of every important theatre of war, and insight into a society that was one of the few in history to grant extreme sexual license to free adult males. Famous names, such as Themistocles, Pericles, Socrates, the treacherous Alcibiades, Thucydides, Sophocles, Euripides, Plato and Aristotle, appear in vividly-drawn portraits as the Athenians themselves would have seen and judged them at the time. The dramatic rise, decline and fall of ancient Athens is much more than a gripping historical tale. Lords of the Sea shows that it is one of the first struggles of everything that makes the human race potentially great., 271649, Greece, 271237, Ancient History & Civilisation, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276420, Maritime Archaeology, 276416, Archaeology, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 271418, Naval Forces, 882510, Armed Forces, 271411, Military History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772022, Naval Battles, 772016, Maritime History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

Lords of the Sea: How the Athenian Navy Changed the World - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 9781906142636

ID: 11919891

A rousing history of the world's first dominant navy and the towering empire it built The Athenian Navy was one of the finest fighting forces in the history of the world. It engineered a civilization, empowered the world's first democracy, and led a band of ordinary citizens on a voyage of discovery that altered the course of history. With "Lords of the Sea," renowned archaeologist John R. Hale presents, for the first time, the definitive history of the epic battles, the fearsome ships, and the men-from extraordinary leaders to seductive rogues-that established Athens's supremacy. With a scholar's insight and a storyteller's flair, Hale takes us on an unforgettable voyage with these heroes, their turbulent careers, and far-flung expeditions, bringing back to light a forgotten maritime empire and its majestic legacy.
