Reviews

This brilliant new book offers a must-read analysis of classicizing antifeminist diatribes that will enlighten or serve as a timely warning to all liberals, as well as to members of the alt-right and Red Pill men's groups (if only they would read it).--Paul Cartledge, author of Democracy: A Life A clear-eyed look at the dangers of misogyny and racism underlying the reception of Classics. Zuckerberg strikes an admirable balance between defending the study of ancient Greek and Roman authors--those all too familiar 'dead white men'--and rejecting the insidious assertions of patriarchy and white supremacy that the alt-right claims to derive from antiquity. This remarkable book never loses sight of what the Classics can mean to the next generation.--Gregory Nagy, author of The Ancient Greek Hero in 24 Hours and The Best of the Achaeans A chilling account of trolling, misogyny, racism, and bad history proliferated online by the alt-right, bolstered by the apparent authority of Greek and Latin Classics. Zuckerberg makes a persuasive case for why we need a new, more critical, and less comfortable relationship between the ancient and modern worlds in this important and very timely book.--Emily Wilson, translator of The Odyssey by Homer
