About this book
Haynes makes the point that our lives are infinitely richer if we take time to look at what the Greeks and Romans have given us in politics, law, religion, philosophy and education. The author is a classicist, comedian and broadcaster who appears on "Newsnight Review" and "The Book Quiz".
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 book shows how we are living very much like people did 2,000 or more years ago.
