  • Black Athena Revisitedby Mary R. Lefkowitz; Guy MacLean Rogers

    The University of North Carolina Press 2014; US$ 29.99

    Was Western civilization founded by ancient Egyptians and Phoenicians? Can the ancient Egyptians usefully be called black?

  • Truthfulness, Realism, Historicityby Peter Turner

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Were holy men historical figures or figments of the theological imagination? Did the biographies devoted to them reflect facts or only the ideological commitments of their authors?

  • Visions of Community in the Post-Roman Worldby Clemens Gantner; Walter Pohl

    This volume looks at 'visions of community' in a comparative perspective, from Late Antiquity to the dawning of the age of crusades.

  • Flow and Flux in Plato?s Philosophyby Andrew J. Mason

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In this bold new study, Andrew J. Mason seeks both to shed light on the key issue of flux in Plato?s work, and to show that there is also in Plato a notion of flow that needs to be distinguished from flux. Mason brings out the importance of this hitherto neglected distinction, and proposes on its basis a new way of understanding the development... more...

  • Ancient Aestheticsby Andrew Mason

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    Over four thousand years ago ambassadors and merchants overcame all manner of obstacles in order to ally the kings of the ancient Near East together as self-proclaimed brothers.
