    Inhaltsangabe

    Please note this product has been re-recorded in April 2015

    It's time for us to reexamine the past. Our lives are infinitely richer if we take the time to look at what the Greeks and Romans have given us in politics and law, religion and philosophy and education, and to learn how people really lived in Athens, Rome, Sparta, and Alexandria.

    This is a book with a serious point to make, but the author isn't simply a classicist but a comedian and broadcaster who has made television and radio documentaries about humour, education, and Dorothy Parker.

    This is a book for us all. Whether political, cultural or social, there are endless parallels between the ancient and modern worlds.

    Whether it's the murder of Caesar or the political assassination of Thatcher; the narrative arc of the hit TV series The Wire or that of Oedipus; the popular enthusiasm for the emperor Titus or President Obama - over and over again we can be seen to be living very much like people did 2,000 or more years ago.
