Editorial Reviews


"An excellent example of how the Greeks can be used as something good to think with--not idealizing them, or giving in to misplaced nostalgia in their regard, but . . . recognizing them as a ceaseless source of stimulation."--John Dillon, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

From the Inside Flap

"This book contains a deeply felt, often moving meditation on the relationship between the human experience of loss, the redemptive power of politics, and the demands of intellectual life."--Sara Monoson, Northwestern University

"Always interesting and provocative, Euben continues and elaborates his project to read classical texts in relation to contemporary political concerns. This book contains innovative and enlightening readings of several thinkers of wide interest as well as of several topics that are central to political theory. His arguments are clear and striking."--Tracy B. Strong, University of California, San Diego
