Controlling Desires: Sexuality in Ancient Greece and Rome
The same ancients that we study were themselves drawn to their own pasts, often asking questions similar to the ones we pose today about our past. The books in the Praeger Series on the Ancient World address different topics from various perspectives. The ones on myth, sports, technology, warfare, and women explore these subjects cross-culturally, both within the ancient Mediterranean context—Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome, and others—and between the ancient Mediterranean cultures and those of the Americas, Africa, and Asia.
Others, including the volumes on literature, men, sexuality, and politics and society, examine their topic more specifically within a Greek or Greek and Roman cultural framework.
All renowned scholars committed to bringing the fruits of their research to wider audiences, each author brings a distinctive new approach to his or her topic that differentiates them from the many books that exist on the ancient world. A major strength of the first group of books is their multicultural breadth, which is informative in its comprehensive embrace and provides numerous opportunities for comparative insights.
Likewise, the books in the second group explore their topics in dramatically new ways: the inner life of male identity, the contributions of both women and men to the social polity, the ancient constructions of concepts of sexuality and eroticism.
