by Grant, Michael

Condition: Near Fine/DJ Near Fine

New York: Barnes & Noble Books, 1995. 'Gladiators' is an introduction to understanding the disturbing and brutal contradiction of a Roman Empire that prized the arts, law and literature while exercising a cruelty inconceivable to most of us today. The bloodthirsty spectacle of gladiatorial combat has inspired countless films and fictions, yet here Michael Grant shows that the truth is no less strange and savage. He tells us who the gladiators were, how they fought and died, how they were idolized by their public and feared by emperors, and how the most barbaric blood sport ever invented finally came to an end. 128pp.. 3rd Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine/DJ Near Fine. Octavo.
