It starts with the history of ancient Asiatic and African states and moves on to the establishment of the Persian monarchy. The latter half of this work is devoted to the evolution of Greek, Macedonian and Roman empires. Rawlinson summarizes the history of Rome in World's Great Classics in the most fascinating manner with a well thought out structure dividing it into various periods for a clearer understanding of the reader.

World's Great Classics is replete with an impressive set footnotes within the chapters.

Description du livre Forgotten Books. Paperback. État : New. Paperback. 658 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 6.0in. x 3.1in.Author for several years. The Handbuch of Professor Heeren, originally published in 1799, and corrected by its writer up to the year 1828, is, so far as he knows, the only modern work of reputation treating in a compendious form the subject of Ancient History generally. Partial works, i. e. works embracing portions of the field, have been put forth more recently, as, particularly, the important Manuel of M. Lenormant (M anuel dhistoire ancienne de Orient jusqiiaux guerres Mtdiques. Paris, 1868 9; 3vols. 12mo). But no work with the scope and on the scale of Professor Heeren shas, so far as the present writer is aware, made its appearance since 1828. That work itself, in its English dress, is, he believes, out of print; and it is one, so great a portion of which has become antiquated by the progress of historical criticism and discovery, that it cannot now be recommended to the student, unless with large reserves and numerous cautions. Under these circumstances, it seemed to the present writer desirable to replace the Handbuch of Heeren by a Manual conceived on the same scale, extending over nearly the same period, and treating (in the main) of the same nations. Heeren s Hand-book always appeared to him admirable in design, and, considering the period at which it was written, excellent in execution. (Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and dont occur in the book. )About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.
