A philhellene who took part in the Greek war of independence
alongside Lord Byron, George Finlay (1799-1875) later published
this work on the country's ancient history in 1844. The text covers
political, religious and social life in Greece from the Roman
conquest of 146 BCE until 717 CE, the beginning of the Isaurian
dynasty of the Byzantine Empire. By focusing on the many ways in
which Greece differed from Rome, Finlay demonstrates that the Roman
Empire was by no means homogenous in terms of culture or political
organisation, and that these differences contributed to the more
obvious divides between the eastern and western empires, not only
in terms of social life and government but also in terms of their
ultimate demise. Also reissued in this series are Finlay's History
of the Greek Revolution (1861) and his seven-volume History of
Greece (1877), covering the period from the Romans to 1864.
