    4 StarsMy last couple of forays into non fiction historical writing have been kind of disappointing three star affairs This book however – whether it’s the academic tone or simply the subject matter – I really enjoyed First published in the 70′s it probably contains some disputed or out of date ideas and evidence by now but it was one of if not ‘the’ first academic texts to thoroughly examine women’s roles in Ancient Greece
