The Rise of the Greeks

Michael Grant, Author Collier Books $14.95 (391p) ISBN 978-0-02-032781-3
The author, a classical historian, explores the primitive roots of an influential civilization in this wide-ranging survey of the ``archaic'' period (750-480 B.C.) of Greece--then some 700 scattered city-states, each bent on achieving self-sufficiency. ``Grant's rewarding history turns up many surprises,'' PW observed .
