    University of Chicago Press 2014; US$ 29.00

    We take reputations for granted. Believing in the bad and the good natures of our notorious or illustrious forebears is part of our shared national heritage.

Even less have we considered how villains, just as much as heroes, have helped... more...

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 133.00

    The occupation with objects from antiquity and the development of methods for this led both to the creation of a modern discipline of Classical Studies and to decisive impetuses for a re-orientation of other subjects such as theology and historical linguistics.

  • On Politicsby Alan Ryan

    Penguin Books Ltd 2012; Not Available

    This is a book about the answers that historians, philosophers, theologians, practising politicians and would-be revolutionaries have given to one question:how should human beings best govern themselves?
