Read full description of the books: The world of odysseus

Moses Finley (1912-1986) was born in New York, but went to England in 1955 after being questioned by the HUAC and then investigated by the McCarran Subcommittee for his alleged Communist affiliations. Finley became a British subject and, in 1979, became Sir Moses Finley.Finley's examinations of the ancient world were shaped in part by his engagement with the ideas of the Frankfurt School, the sociological work of Emile Durkheim, and the gift-exchange theory of Marcel Mauss.This is one of Finley's best-known texts, published by The Folio Society in an attractive edition, elegantly set in type, and with numerous color plates.The introduction is by the eminent classicist Simon Hornblower, a Fellow of All Souls, and an erstwhile student of Finley's at Cambridge.

The butterflies in my stomach have died ...

A wonderful piece

A hard book, obviously not for everyone.

A book that impressed me to the depths of my soul.
