Examining every aspect of the culture from antiquity to the founding of Constantinople in the early Byzantine era, this thoroughly cross-referenced and fully indexed work is written by an international group of scholars. This Encyclopedia is derived from the more broadly focused Encyclopedia of Greece and the Hellenic Tradition, the highly praised two-volume work. Newly edited by Nigel Wilson, this single-volume reference provides a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the political, cultural, and social life of the people and to the places, ideas, periods, and events that defined ancient Greece.

The color-illustrated catalogue includes 9 informative essays that explore the historic and socio-economic context of the period, the spiritual and artistic legacy of the Orthodox Church, the importance of home and decorative arts, the adornment of women, the depictions of Greece by foreign travelers, and the Greek Enlightenment and founding of the modern Greek State.

Much has changed in London's restaurant and hotel world since the last edition of Andre Gayot and Maryann Evans's The Best of London was published. Some call the scene vibrant: others see it as volatile. Regardless of individual views, all acknowledge that London is now among the world's leading destinations for gastronomic tastes and trends as well as tourist attractions. As in earlier editions of this classic guide, an expert team of writers and journalists have combed London from one end to the other, sleeping in innumerable hotel rooms, eating in every restaurant of note, visiting establishments small and large, and drinking an unspecified number of bottles of wine. Their research has taken them through the picturesque alleys and great buildings, along with major museums and shopping areas. The result is an uncommonly frank guide with more than 1,700 witty reviews that will help the reader feel, move, and eat like a Londoner.
