'My favourite history book of the year so far? No contest: Kostas Vlassopoulos's Greeks and Barbarians ... This book sets a new agenda in the field.' Paul Cartledge, BBC History Magazine
'One of this book's most admirable qualities is that its own curiosity is as boundless as that of the Greeks it describes. Its range of reference is dizzying. ... comfortably the best general account of the topic in English (and one written accessibly for a wide student and general readership).' Thomas Harrison, Anglo-Hellenic Review
