Classics: A Very Short Introduction

Mary Beard and John Henderson

Very Short Introductions

  • 'The authors show us that Classics is a 'modern' and sexy subject. They succeed brilliantly in this regard ... nobody could fail to be informed and entertained - and the accent of the book is provocative and stimulating.' John Goodwin, Times Literary Supplement
  • Mary Beard writes regularly for the Times Literary Supplement
  • Appeal to broad cross-section of readers, whose interests may be in ancient history, literature, philosophy, or art history
