Product description

Book Description

The complex Spartan tradition has been central to western thinking since antiquity. Sparta is also one of the handful of ancient Greek cities well enough attested for the historian to attempt a convincing social portrait in the round. This work intends to capture both the influence of the Spartan tradition and Sparta's thought-provoking qualities.
