Editorial Reviews

Review

"[The contributors] have either renewed the study of traditional topics and sources . . . or brought neglected and marginalized topics centrally into the play of cultural history by means of their hermeneutic approach and omnivorous perspective."--The Times Literary Supplement

Format: Paperback
A good collection of essays about sexuality in the ancient world, this book should not be missed by scholars attempting to understand gender or sex. Some of the articles are better than others, some theories and methods may make the serious scholar's nose cringe, but it is an excellent way to start one's own mind turning over the questions about ancient sexuality that for too long were over looked in history and classics.

Format: Paperback
I'm reading ancient Greek lit, and found this book very helpful in gaining an understanding of the world view of the writers and audiences of the Greek literature that's come down to us. It's information-dense, which I found helpful in my study. It's scholarly writing--not an entertainment read for most people.

Format: Paperback
AS a prospective student of cultural anthropology, this book was just boring and tedious enough to encite me to change my major. Thank God for the David Lewis-Mayberry's and Bartoleme de Las Casa's of the world or I'd be studying basketweaving 101. A good read for those who enjoy an apologetic writing style. Not!
