    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    Athens has, at different times and from different points of view, been cited as a model of moderate democracy and triumphant humanism, or, on the contrary, as an illustration of the disorders due to demagoguery and misguided imperialism.

    Oxford University Press, USA 2014; US$ 18.99

    The Romans first set military foot on Greek soil in 229 BCE; only sixty or so years later it was all over, and shortly thereafter Greece became one of the first provinces of the emerging Roman Empire.

Here the author vigorously reproduces this age, to show the... more...
