THE CITY-STATE OF THE GREEKS AND ROMANS: A SURVEY INTRODUCTORY TO THE STUDY OF ANCIENT
Times.--"The purpose is excellent, and Mr. Warde Fowler executes it in
a very skilful and scholarly fashion."
Classical Review.--"This little book is excellent both in design and
in execution, and it supplies a want which has been much felt by those
engaged in teaching ancient history.... A book which will have a most
stimulating effect on the teaching of ancient history, and which ought
to become familiar to every schoolboy and undergraduate."
Wsetminster Gazette.--"It is impossible within any available limits to
give an adequate account of Mr. Fowler's treatment of his subject. We
can but commend his treatise to our readers; and this we can do without
Oxford Magazine.--"One of those charming books which by their
excellence are able to commend themselves to entirely different
persons.... The man beginning work for 'Greats' will always be told that
he must read this; and if he do so, will be rewarded by having the
relations of the different parts of his reading marked out with masterly
clearness; and the student who has been over most of the ground himself
in original authorities, will find with pleasure fresh light thrown on
many points by Mr. Fowler's grace of style and power of illustration....
We cordially recommend it as at once charmingly written, and accurate,
useful and stimulating."
