Books By Author Bruce S. Thornton
Decline and Fall, Hardback (December 2007)
Argues that once a colossus dominating the globe, Europe today is a doddering convalescent. This book tells the story of this decline by focusing on the larger cultural dysfunctions behind the statistics.
Greek Ways, Paperback (January 2002)
Discusses those areas of Greek life - sexuality and sexual roles; slavery and war; and, philosophy and politics - that some modern critics have made into contested sites. This title claims the importance of those core ideas the Greeks invented, ideas about human fate and purpose that have shaped the modern world.
Eros, Paperback (January 1998)» View all books by Bruce S. Thornton
Unlike romantic moderns, the Greeks saw Eros as a dangerous force of nature requiring cultural and social controls. Making a wide-reaching survey of Ancient Greek literature, this work provides an examination of the meanings that the Greeks gave to sex.
