Customer Questions & Answers for
Encounter Books Who Killed Homer? The Demise of Classical Education

At least since the Renaissance, familiarity with the literature, art, philosophy, and moral values of the Classical World has been synonymous with education itself. But today, Classical education is under assault and rapidly disappearing from American high schools and colleges. We are in danger of becoming illiterate about the ideas that created--and still have the capacity to sustain--Western Civilization. In this book acclaimed classicists Victor Davis Hanson and John Heath explain what has been killed, who did it, and why. They rescue the Greeks from the assault of postmodern scholars who disparage the though and art of these "dead white European males." With informative readings of great Greek texts, the authors show how we might still revive the glory that was Greece. This book is a must read for those who agree that knowledge of the classics initiates us into the beauty and peril of human experience.
