    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 140.09

    This book poses a radical challenge to the legend of Socrates bequeathed by Plato and echoed by scholars through the ages: that Socrates was an innocent sage convicted and sentenced to death by the democratic mob, for merely questioning the political and religious ideas of his time.

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 93.39

    This book explores the inherent tension in civic education.
