Crawford, Michael

Fontana / Collins. Very Good-. 1988. Softcover. 0006333508 . Remainder mark to base of book (black line) else VG. ; During the centuries of its history the republic burst its city-state shell...

This is the material of Crawford's study. He handles its complexities with acuteness and balance. He is sophisticated about political motives and economic causes... Crawford's readable book is a fine contribution to the understanding of this important period. (Times Higher Education Supplement ) ; Fontana History of the Ancient World; 224 pages .

CLASSICS A Very Short Introduction

Beard, Mary & John Henderson

Oxford. Very Good+. 1995. Softcover. 0192853139 . Pages tanned else fine. ; We are all classicists--we come into touch with the classics on a daily basis: in our culture, politics, medicine, architecture, language, and literature.

This introduction to the classics begins with a visit to the British Museum to view the frieze which once decorated the Apollo Temple a Bassae. Through these sculptures John Henderson and Mary Beard prompt us to consider the significance of the study of Classics as a means of discovery and enquiry, its value in terms of literature, philosophy, and culture, its source of imagery, and the reasons for the continuation of these images into and beyond the twentieth century.
