About the Author

THOMAS CAHILL's appealing approach to distant history won the attention of millions of readers in North America and beyond. Cahill is the author of six volumes in the Hinges of History series: How the Irish Saved Civilization, The Gifts of the Jews, Desire of the Everlasting Hills, Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea, Mysteries of the Middle Ages, and Heretics and Heroes. They have been bestsellers not only in the United States but also in countries ranging from Italy to Brazil. He is also the author of A Saint on Death Row. He died in 2022.


"A triumph of popularization: extraordinarily knowledgeable, informal in tone, amusing, wide ranging, smartly paced." --The New York Times Book Review

"The best introduction to classical Greek culture yet written.... Learned, stylish and inspiring.... Well-informed, insightful and on the whole written in a sparkling style." --Los Angeles Times

"Astonishing.... If anybody can get us reading about Homer, Plato, Socrates, Aristotle, Thucydides, Xenophon and more, Cahill will." --Chicago Tribune

"Fascinating.... Commendable.... Cahill has an impressive knowledge of the Greek world.... His admirable skill at summing up movements of enormous complexity surface throughout the book." --The Seattle Times
