  • THE GENEALOGY OF GREEK MYTHOLOGY

    A stunning, fully illustrated and comprehensively annotated genealogical map of the universe of Greek myth; presented in a unique, easy-to-use format

    From the television hit Xena, to the Oscar-winning box-office smash Gladiator, to Broadway’s Medea, the sagas of antiquity continue to attract avid audiences. Now, the lore and legend of Ancient Greece has been distilled into one spectacularly illustrated resource: The Genealogy of Greek Mythology brings to life the complete cast of characters, mortal and mythic alike. Accompanied by more than 125 captivating full-color photographs of art and artifacts, the narratives and bloodlines mapped out in The Genealogy of Greek Mythology are wonderfully user friendly. Beginning with Chaos — before the Earth was born — Vanessa James traces the succession of gods and titans through to the first generations of historically verifiable people of the ancient Aegean. Packed with over 4,000 entries, this incredibly detailed resource also features a star chart, regional map, and who’s who guide to the Olympian gods. The book’s unique accordion-page design can be perused section by section or fanned out to reveal the entire genealogy in seventeen elegant feet on each side.

    Published just in time for the holidays, The Genealogy of Greek Mythology will be a necessity for all students and fans of the culture and literature of Ancient Greece, and a delight for anyone who enjoys an adventure.
