Los espartanos: Una historia épica [NOOK Book]

Overview


Id y decid a los Espartanos... Los espartanos son nuestros antepasados exactamente igual que los atenienses.

More About This Book

Overview


Id y decid a los Espartanos... Los espartanos son nuestros antepasados exactamente igual que los atenienses. Pero mientras que los atenienses fomentaron la democracia, el individualismo y la alta cultura, su gran rival, Esparta, encarnó el militarismo, el centralismo autoritario, la segregación y una brutal represión. Las selectivas matanzas anuales de esclavos y el asesinato de sus recién nacidos débiles aportan también su granito de arena a ese espíritu despiadado. Los espartanos personificaban la superioridad física y la organización eficiente. Tan implacables como abnegados, sus rituales guerreros hicieron de ellos la fuerza de combate por excelencia: la legendaria batalla de las Termópilas resume todo o que es Esparta. Más allá de los mitos, Paul Cartledge nos presenta la absorbente historia de un pueblo extraordinario, desde su condición de gran potencia hasta su desaparición final. ¡Esparta vive! «El eminente historiador Paul Cartledge nos regala una admirable crónica del ascenso y caída de Esparta... La prosa cristalina de Cartledge, su vivaz capacidad narrativa y sus lúcidas indagaciones históricas dan como resultado una historia de primera magnitud de los espartanos», PublishersWeekly. «En su panorama sobre la verdadera Esparta, Cartledge fusiona su erudición con una agilidad y entusiasmo que estimulará a los lectores desde la primera página», Booklist. «Una lúcida y elegante historia de una sociedad legendaria...El autor destaca los logros y la bravura de sus héroes guerreros, pero también muestra las zonas más oscuras de la vida espartana», Kirkus Reviews.
