About the Author

Terry Buckley has recently retired from full-time teaching, having held the post of Head of Classics at Camden School for Girls and Roedean. He has also been for many years a member of the JACT Ancient History Committee.


"Buckley's "Aspects of Greek History bridges the gap between general histories that offer little in the way of source analysis, source books that offer too litle historical context for the non-specialist, and scholarly works that assume a greater familiarity with the language and cultural background than undergraduate students can be expressed to possess. The format of Buckley's work is highly organized, topically arranged narrative history interpersed with primary source material.."
