Summary
  • Oxford's Very Short Introductions series offers concise and original introductions to a wide range of subjects--from Islam to sociology, literary theory to history, and archaeology to the Bible. Not simply a textbook of definitions, each volume provides trenchant and provocative--yet always balanced and complete--discussions of the central issues in a given discipline or field. Every Very Short Introduction gives a readable evolution of the subject in question, demonstrating how the subject developed and how it influenced society. Eventually, the series will encompass every major academic discipline, offering all readers an accessible and abundant reference library. Whatever area of study one deems important or appealing, whatever topic fascinates the general reader, the Very Short Introductions series has a handy and affordable guide that will likely prove indispensable
  • This Very Short Introduction to Classics links a haunting temple on a lonely mountainside to the glory of ancient Greece and the grandeur of Rome; and to classics within modern culture--from Jefferson and Byron to Asterix and Ben-Hur.--Jacket flap
