Race: Antiquity and Its Legacy

Front Cover
I.B. Tauris, 2012 - Social Science - 250 pages
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.
