My new book The Politics of the Past in Early China is a study of the history of this landscape of the past in early China. A historical narrative is provided, beginning with the early Sumerian age and ending with the periods of the Grecian Empire. Reading through the ancient Chinese corpus is, therefore, akin to wandering in a vast landscape of the past. But that's a digression.

How do series work? It's exactly what science should be, and it's a shame that the set is so expensive. Mikalson - University of California PressDrawing from epigraphical, historical, literary, and archaeological sources, Mikalson traces the religious cults and beliefs of Athenians from the battle of Chaeroneia in B. So, all in all, yes. This is a cultural history which reveals the far-reaching linguistic, literary, artistic and political legacy of ancient Greece, and seeks justification for Shelley's claim that 'we are all Greeks'.
