Description
Spartacus is remembered as the Thracian gladiator who rose up from slavery in 73 BC and defeated every Roman army sent to destroy him. We tend to see his struggle as a fight for freedom, but it had various meanings in the classical world: to the Romans he was an embarrassment, while the Greeks admired him, and still others viewed his uprisings as the embodiment of cruelty. Times Literary Supplement editor Peter Stothard retraces the journey taken by Spartacus and his army, taking us back to an ancient world that confronted similar issues to those we face today.

"Haunting, erudite, and beautifully written ... a fusion of memoir, history and travelogue that is unlike any other book ever written about Spartacus, and all the more precious for being quite so unexpected."Spectator (London)
