Race: Antiquity and Its Legacy

Front Cover
I.B.Tauris, 2012 - Civilization - 250 pages
2 Reviews
This provocative book boldly explores the complex matrices of race - and the differing interpretations of ancient and modern - across epic, tragedy and the novel. Ranging from Theocritus to Toni Morrison, and from Tacitus and Pliny to Bernal's seminal study Black Athena, this is a powerful and original new assessment.

Review: Race: Antiquity and Its Legacy

User Review  - Matthew - Goodreads

Nice introduction to "race relations" in the ancient world. It includes, as the other titles in the series do, the modern philosophies that the ancient thoughts gave "seed" to. Perfect for the novice or uninitiated in the subject. Read full review
