Who were the Classical Greeks? This book provides an original and challenging answer by exploring how Greeks (adult, male, citizen) defined themselves in opposition to a whole series of others (non-Greeks, women, slaves, non-citizens, and gods) as presented by supposedly objective historians of the time such as Herodotus, Thucydides, and Xenophon. Cartledge looks at the achievements and legacy of the Greeks - history, democracy, philosophy and theatre - and the
mental and material contexts of these inventions which are often deeply alien to our own way of thinking and acting.

Philip Howard, The Times Review from previous edition a useful antidote to British sentimentality about ancient Greece

Boyd Tonkin, New Statesman & Society Paul Cartledge's sharp and unsentimental new introduction to [the Greeks'] mentality ... forcefully shows that freedom-loving citizens could live at ease among hordes of slaves.

Times Literary Supplement the lively and succinct development of many ancient nad modern arguments makes The Greeks a welcome and timely contribution to a number of continuing and important debates

Greece & Rome lively, and very topical, book ... I know of no better book with which to introduce this 'portrait of self and others' to students at the sixth-form level or above.

Contemporary Review He adopts a lightly unusual approach and discusses the 'dominant' group - male citizens - in its relations with woman, slaves, barbarians and the gods. It is an interesting approach.

Mnemosyne With The Greeks Cartledge has achieved an up-to-date synthesis of Hellenic central concepts, thus furnishing teachers of ancient history and civilization with a valuable instrument, as I experienced in Greece when teaching European youth about their identity.

The Sunday Times Cartledge's The Greeks is bracingly enthusiastic with inter-disciplinary influences and interests.

Il pensiero politico a study of the rise of a mentality, written in brilliant style, important, sometimes iconoclastic
