    This is a lovely book that delves into the psychological aspects of ancient greeks, and tries to explain exactly why, on a tiny piece of real estate for a brief moment in time, everything that we call western democracy suddenly burst forth.

    Although it might be embarrassing to modern, contextualist, there but for the grace of god ideas about the indisputability of democracy as the best form of government, something rather exceptional took place in greece in the years 5,000 to 0 bc, and we are still living (or failing to live up to) the societal ideals formed in ancient greece.

    Her only weakness is her ignoring of the other side of their society such as the debasement of women to include massive infanticide, slavery and an immoral religion.

    I thought the book will be damaged because it is shipped.

    It looked like someone was eating fried chicken when they packaged it.

    Maybe it is meant to be a cross between an academic treatise and a compendium of stories and tales for the pleasure of reading them.

    And yes, i enjoyed her rather brief summary of the norse tales as well, having become somewhat familiar with the germanic iteration of those stories through a re-telling of the stories comprising wagner's ring cycle.
