In this beautifully written book, summing up a life-time's  research, Christian Meier enquires into the origins of the Greek  achievement, asking what the factors were which enabled such a  remarkable cultural, social, political and scientific  effloressence. In charting the rise of the polis culture during  the archaic age, Meier argues that what set the Greeks apart as a  civilization was the pursuit of freedom; that their culture was  based on the hopes and desires of its citizenry rather than the  power of great empires and monarchs.
