Review quote

"As might be expected from the calibre of the contributors, this is a first-rate collection of essays... Like I Claudia, this book will appeal to many others besides classicists. The two volumes will be a must for anyone interested in social history or women's history; the treatment, style, and illustrations make this volume accessible to general readers." -Karl Galinsky, Floyd A. Cailloux Centennial Professor of Classics, University of Texas at Austin
