    Most of the general comments I made about the first volume apply here but the subject matter makes this a better read than the first The thread binding it together is the slow movement toward centralization and union among the Greeks I would also say that is was worthwhile to fold out the maps at the back and follow Grote's geographical tour of Greece and the surrounding areas Especially for someone like myself who is not familiar with the territory It is great fun to listen to Grote gush never inarticulately but often inaccurately about the Greeks and especially the Athenians His closing statement at the end of the volume characterizes a lot of what makes Grote Grote and great“To collect the few particulars known respecting these ruder communities adjacent to Greece is a task indispensable for the just comprehension of the Grecian world and for the appreciation of the Greeks themselves by comparison or contrast with their contemporaries Indispensable as it is however it can hardly be rendered in itself interesting to the reader whose patience I have to bespeak by assuming him that the facts hereafter to be recounted of Grecian history would be only half understood without this preliminary survey of the lands around”He is only interested in anyone not Greek so that he can better appreciate the true greatness of the Greek And Grote assumes that we could only share his sympathies

    Trying to work through this set before I travel to Greece this summer Very good information but probably detail than I need for my purposes Over 100 years old but still considered one of the standards
