A compelling, articulate and mega-researched tome of academic and literary excellence. But by no means a stuffy read. Follows Socrates and his peers around Athens, bringing to page-turning life the events, processes and environs of the city if Athena that lead to Socrates' court appearance and subsequent death by hemlock. A must for hellenophiles...or whatever one calls enthusiasts of the history of ancient Greece. It's as if we were all there once. But then, we were.
