Praise for the fourth edition: 'The Greek World has thus far endured the test of time and remains one of the leading textbooks on Greek History, and I have no doubt that it will continue to do so for many years to come.' - Bryn Mawr Classical Review Praise forthe third edition (2002):'To write a standard history which contains the essential material and yet is interesting and says things which have not been said before is one of the hardest tasks. Hornblower has performed it excellently.'- Times Literary Supplement 'Hornblower's excellence as a historian, and his wide and responsible use of sources, together with attractive packaging, re-establishes the book's position as a benchmark for historians ... It is packed to the brim ... with an abundance of erudite observations.'- Scholia Reviews
