About the Authors
  • A participant in the Greek struggle for independence alongside Lord Byron, the philhellene George Finlay (1799–1875) lent his support to the newly liberated nation while diligently studying its past. The monographs he published in his lifetime covered the history of Greece since the Roman conquest, spanning two millennia. His two-volume History of the Greek Revolution (1861) is reissued separately in this series. Edited by the scholar Henry Fanshawe Tozer (1829–1916) and published in 1877, this seven-volume collection brought together Finlay's histories, incorporating significant revisions. Notably, Finlay gives due consideration to social and economic factors as well as high politics. The volumes cover the following: Greece under the Romans, 146 BCE to 716 CE; the Byzantine empire, 716 to 1057; and from 1057 to 1453; medieval Greece, 1204–1461; Greece under Ottoman and Venetian rule, 1453–1821; the Greek revolution, 1821–7; and independence, monarchy and constitutions, 1827–64.
