A indispensible addition to every scholar’s shelf, “The Classical Tradition” offers a detailed look at all aspects of the reception of Greek and Roman culture by later societies. Harvard University Press have assembled an “all-star” cast of academics for this prestigious project, under the leadership of Anthony Grafton, Glenn Most and Salvatore Settis. The entries are arranged alphabetically by subject and each one aims to demonstrate the enormous influence the ancient world has had on the modern. There are a generous number of colour photographs. On top of all this, Blackwell is proud to offer an additional £4.00 off the already great value list price.
