Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This deeply probing and elegantly written book interprets the charged sexual structure of the ancient Greek family and compares ancient Greek narcissism with that of contemporary middle-class America.

Format: Paperback
I read this book as an undergraduate at Berkeley. The book really opened my mind and affected me deeply. A large part of our civilization is based upon Greek philosophy, and we generally idolize them as intellectual heroes. But Slater's work investigates how the Greek family structure, with its extremely repressed women, affected Greek male psychology, and how this is reflected in their mythic structure. Slater's revelations made me re-think the whole Western investment in the Greek ethos.
