Book Review

We mark the appearance of a publication that deals with a subject of interest to the general
public, namely the story of the legendary Spartacus. We look at the issue of slaves in the ancient
world, which has inspired novelists and filmmakers over the years. Barry Strauss is a professor
at Cornell University and a renowned expert on ancient military history. He has written or
edited several works in his sphere of influence: The Fathers and Sons of Athens: Ideology and Society
in the Age of Peloponnesian Warfare (Princeton University Press, Princeton, 1993), The Battle of
Salamis (Simon&Schuster, New York, 2005), The Trojan War (Simon&Schuster, New York, 2007),
Masters of Command (Simon&Schuster, New York, 2012), The Death of Caesar (Simon&Schuster,
New York, 2015), and Ten Caesars (Simon&Schuster, New York, 2019).
