Published January 31st 2011 by Routledge – 258 pages
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.
