Product description


A landmark in the field of ancient history. The notes are a vast storehouse of new materials, of fresh evaluation of passages already well-known and of valuable references to modern literature in many disciplines.
Bernard Knox, New Republic

An astonishing achievement.
Alan Ryan, Sunday Times

One of the most exciting, provocative and challenging works on ancient history to have appeared in recent times, and of immense importance to all historians of the Graeco-Roman world.
K.R. Bradley, American Journal of Philology

Unique... the only work in a Western language that has ever attempted to tell the story of the ancient world with the interests of the lower classes in mind.
E. Badian, New York Review of Books

This remarkable book has a passion, a personal style and a breathd of interest, based on exact detail, which have not been surpassed in British history writing on such a scale for ery many years ... a rare experience. --Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times
