Trojan Horse: How the Greeks Won the Trojan War (Trojan Horse, Trojan War, Greek Mythology, Ancient Greece)

by Patrick Auerbach

The story of the Trojan War, fought between Greeks and the defenders of the city of Troy in Anatolia sometime in the late Bronze Age, has grabbed the imagination for millennia. A conflict between Mycenaeans and Hittites may well have occurred, but its representation in epic literature such as Homer’s Iliad is almost certainly more myth than reality. Nevertheless, it has defined and shaped the way ancient Greek culture has been viewed right up to the 21st century CE. The story of gods and heroic warriors is perhaps one of the richest single surviving sources from antiquity and offers insights into the warfare, religion, customs, and attitudes of the ancient Greeks.

The main source for our knowledge of the Trojan War is Homer’s Iliad (written sometime in the 8th century BCE)...

Vlad the Impaler: Son of Dracul

by Alan C. Baird

Many will assume this is just another retelling of the "Dracula" horror myth... but Vlad's story is true. Hitler's Holocaust killed approximately 10% of Germany's people, while some estimates claim that Vlad exterminated more than 20% of his fellow Wallachians.

The Renaissance Reader

by Kenneth Atchity

As the transition period between the Middle Age and modern times, the Renaissance is perhaps the most distinguished age since that of Classical Greece. Moreover, the consciousness of our time was largely formed by those who were given the freedom to express themselves by the rebirth of the art and sciences of the Renaissance.The Renaissance Reader allows the men and women of that turbulent time of change to speak in their on voices--sane and insane, brilliant and mundane, inspired and possessed, oblivious and decisive. Organized chronologically and covering the fourteenth through the seventeenth centuries, the book provides readers with the literary and artistic; social, religious, and political; and scientific and philosophic texts that shaped Renaissance thinking from the death of Dante ...
