Book Description

When Men Were Men questions the deep-set assumption that men's history speaks and has always spoken for all of us, by exploring the history of classical antiquity as an explicitly masculine story.
With a preface by Sarah Pomeroy, this study employs different methodologies and focuses on a broad range of source materials, periods and places.

Reviews

'This book certainly deserves to be in college libraries as an important resource for the growing study of ancient social relations.' -The Anglo-Hellenic Review
