A discerning travel guide, aiming to unlock the richness of the Greek world and exploring how it has informed our own. The ancient Greeks moulded our current perceptions of poetry, drama, politics, philosophy, history and medicine – among many other things – and Higgins attempts to bring the ancient Greek world into mainstream life. ‘A highly entertaining bluffer’s guide to Greek culture, philosophy and politics’ “The Sunday Times”
