About the Book

What's the connection between the Battle of troy and the ANZACS at Gallipoli? Does the latest film of Alexander the Great do him justice? Are you a pagan at heart? Why is there a worldwide revival of interest in the Classics? Slattery talks about big ideas in simple, sensible language. And he takes you to the places where these ideas were born. He shows you the landscape and explains how, even today, the spirit of these places shines through. Slattery is a journalist, culture writer and book critic whose work has appeared in the Australian, the Financial Review, the Age, the (UK) Spectator, the times Literary Supplement and the International Herald tribune. His writing is clear, accessible, evocative and opinionated in the best journalistic tradition.
