Summary

Explora la fascinante historia de la Antigua Grecia

La cultura y los acontecimientos que tuvieron lugar en Grecia fueron tan influyentes que tienen un efecto significativo en la población actual de todo el mundo. Los griegos antiguos crearon la democracia, un sistema político usado frecuentemente y considerado por muchos como la mejor forma de gobierno. Las grandes mentes de Grecia también hicieron increíbles y vitales descubrimientos, como el molino de agua, la geometría básica, y el uso de la medicina para curar enfermedades. Los filósofos de la antigua Grecia establecieron los cimientos de un nuevo campo de pensamiento y estudios. La antigua Grecia inauguró los juegos olímpicos, que aún se celebran regularmente. Figuras históricas particularmente famosas, tales como Alejandro Magno y Cleopatra, también tuvieron lazos con la antigua Grecia y jugaron un papel significativo durante su historia, a través del curso de guerras y la expansión del imperio.

Debido a la influencia de la antigua Grecia, mientras aprendes sobre este periodo y lugar, aprenderás también sobre tu historia y sobre los orígenes de las personas, lugares e instituciones que probablemente estudias de manera regular en la escuela. Empezando en la Edad Oscura, este libro te guiará a lo largo de un emocionante viaje a través de la oscuridad, la democracia, el descubrimiento y el desarrollo de la civilización occidental.

Algunos de los temas que se cubren en este libro incluyen:
 

  • El amanecer de la Edad Oscura
  • De la Oscuridad a la Democracia
  • Orígenes Olímpicos
  • Grecia Crece de Guerra en Guerra
  • La Lucha por la Democracia
  • La Guerra del Peloponeso
  • Entra Alejandro El Grande
  • Grandes Mentes de la Antigua Grecia
  • Roma Toma el Control

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Nice handbook to aid me in setting up my site.

It is a good inside look at Greek politics and history and makes enjoyable reading, not just for historical purposes. It’s truly an indispensable for my Greece History web-site I’m trying to put up.

Good into to the ancient Greek

Too often history books focus on what the leadership or major figures are doing exclusively, completely neglecting what it would have been like to be a Greek. Readers will get a real sense for what it would have been like to be a Greek while listening this audiobook. That would have to be its greatest merit, in my view.

Learned a lo

Of course, the main attraction of the book is that the Greek civilization was so fascinating, and that there is much in our own time that comes straight from them, so it's easy to feel empathy with the Greeks.
