Description

War in the modern age is persistently illuminated by antiquity. But the vocabulary of modern warfare - army, military, strategy, tactics - derives from Greek and Latin, while metaphors of conflict similarly evoke ancient times

War in the modern age is persistently illuminated by antiquity. But the vocabulary of modern warfare - army, military, strategy, tactics - derives from Greek and Latin, while metaphors of conflict similarly evoke ancient times. Such expressions and phrases as "Live by the sword and die by the sword", "Pyrrhic victory", and "arms and the man" are commonplace, and all come from the classical age. Wilfred Owen, famous soldier of the Great War, could write the bitter line "the old lie: Dulce et decorum est/pro patria mori" while expecting his readers to understand both Latin and allusion.

Combining astute analyses of the logistics of conflict with the ethics of war, Alfred Bradford offers fascinating parallels between warfare in ancient and contemporary societies. After a brief prelude that discusses the Greeks' first descriptions of battle in the Iliad, Bradford outlines the changes in warfare from the earliest records through the fall of the Roman Empire to contemporary wars of counterterrorism. War: Antiquity and Its Legacy is one of the latest offerings in Oxford University Press’s Ancients and Moderns series, which aims to show how antiquity is relevant to life today.

The art of the human body is arguably the most important and wide-ranging legacy bequeathed to us by Classical antiquity. Instead of approaching his material chronologically, Michael Squire faces up to its inherent modernity

The art of the human body is arguably the most important and wide-ranging legacy bequeathed to us by Classical antiquity. Not only has it directed the course of western image-making, it has shaped our collective cultural imaginary - as ideal, antitype, and point of departure. Instead of approaching his material chronologically, Michael Squire faces up to its inherent modernity.

Despite radical differences in the prosecution of warfare between ancient and modern societies, there remains a linear connection to the ways that Greco-Roman cultures thought about war-its conduct, aims, tactics, and ethics.
