All the foundational information your students need to build their knowledge, interest, and skills upon. Concise information in point form with stunning images and thought-provoking questions. **

At the beginning of the 5th century BCE, the small, independent city-states of Greece were in danger of being swallowed up by the massive Persian Empire. Had the Greeks not successfully defended their freedom at this critical point in the development of their culture, it is difficult to imagine how different the history of the western world would have been.
