READING: In oktober 2005 werd voor het gebouw van het Europees Parlement in Straatsburg een imposant beeld onthuld. Het beeld, een gift van de stad Agios Nikolaos op Kreta, stelt de legendarische prinses Europa voor, rijdend op een stier. Op een dag werd oppergod Zeus verliefd op de mooie Europa. Om haar in te palmen nam hij de gedaante aan van een prachtige stier, waarna hij haar op zijn rug de zee over droeg naar Kreta. Het beeld in Straatsburg staat zo symbool voor de plaats die Kreta in de Europese geschiedenis inneemt: de mythische prinses zou haar naam aan het latere Europa schenken en zo staat de Minoïsche beschaving op Kreta aan de basis van de Europese geschiedenis. De geboorte van het klassieke Europa vertelt de Europese geschiedenis die loopt van de zogenoemde Minoïsche beschaving op Kreta uit het midden van het tweede millennium v.Chr. tot het Laat- Romeinse Rijk van de 4e en vroege 5e eeuw n.Chr. Centraal in deze beschouwing staan de oude volken uit het noorden van het Middellandse Zeebekken, de Grieken en Romeinen. De volken die rond de Egeïsche Zee, op de zuidelijke Balkan en op het Italiaanse schiereiland leefden waren verantwoordelijk voor de voornaamste ontwikkelingen die de geschiedenis zouden bepalen.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Classical Greece and its legacy have long inspired a powerful and passionate fascination. The civilization that bequeathed to later ages drama and democracy, Homer and heroism, myth and Mycenae and the Delphic Oracle and the Olympic Games has, perhaps more than any other, helped shape the intellectual contours of the modern world. P J Rhodes is among the most distinguished historians of antiquity. In this elegant, zesty new survey he explores the archaic (8th - early 5th centuries BCE), classical (5th and 4th centuries BCE) and Hellenistic (late 4th - mid-2nd centuries BCE) periods up to the beginning of Roman hegemony. His scope is that of the people who originated on the Greek mainland and Aegean islands who later migrated to the shores of the Mediterranean and Black Seas, and then (following the conquests of Alexander) to the Near East and beyond. Exploring topics such as the epic struggle with Persia; the bitter rivalry of Athens and Sparta; slaves and ethnicity; religion and philosophy; and literature and the visual arts, this authoritative book will attract students and non-specialists in equal measure.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Losbandigheid, lust en liefde, moord en doodslag, triomfen en tragedies; de Griekse mythen en sagen zijn wilder en woester dan het leven zelf. Deze verhalen bieden alles wat een lezer zich kan wensen. De oude Grieken inspireerden onder anderen Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce en Walt Disney. In de handen van Stephen Fry komen de verhalen opnieuw tot leven. We worden verliefd op Zeus, we aanschouwen de geboorte van Athena, we zien hoe Kronos en Gaia wraak nemen op Ouranos, we huilen met koning Midas en we jagen met de even beeldschone als meedogenloze Artemis. Stephen Fry haalt deze verhalen op uit de oudheid en geeft ze hun welverdiende plek in onze moderne tijd.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Op reis door het land van de Habsburgers met de grappigste reisleider ooit! Eeuwenlang was Europa in handen van het eigenaardige Huis Habsburg, dat tot 1918 over grote delen van Centraal-Europa en Duitsland heerste en zich bemoeide met alles wat er in Europa gebeurde. Danubia is de verzamelnaam van de landen en gebieden rondom de rivier de Donau, de thuisbasis van de Habsburgers. Simon Winder reist met groot enthousiasme door dit uitgestrekte gebied met zijn uiteenlopende landschappen, steden en dorpen. Op zijn zeer persoonlijke manier deelt hij zijn kennis, verbazing en observatievermogen en legt uit hoe de complexe geschiedenis van deze dynastie in elkaar zit. En hij vertelt over de mensen en volken over wie zij heersten. Mensen die zich vaak opmerkelijk ondankbaar betoonden ten opzichte van hun excentrieke vorst in Wenen. ‘Winder is een reisleider met een uitzonderlijke hoeveelheid kennis. Hij praat maar door en haalt nauwelijks adem. En je wilt hem zeggen: “Vergeet dat ademhalen en vertel verder!”’ The New York Times book review Simon Winder werkt in de Engelse uitgeverswereld. Eerder schreef hij The man who saved Britain en het veelgeprezen Germania, de voorloper van Danubia. Over Germania ‘Zeer onderhoudende studie over “Germania”. Met vrolijke verbazing schrijft Simon Winder over Duitsland. Je hangt aan zijn lippen zoals vroeger aan die van je favoriete leraar geschiedenis.’ Bart Funnekotter in NRC Handelsblad

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The contribution of the Ancient Greeks to modern western culture is incalculable. In the worlds of art, architecture, myth, literature, and philosophy, the world we live in would be unrecognizably different without the formative influence of Ancient Greek models. Ancient Greek civilization was defined by the city - in Greek, the polis, from which we derive 'politics'. It is above all this feature of Greek civilization that has formed its most enduring legacy, spawning such key terms as aristocracy, oligarchy, tyranny and - last but by no means least - democracy. This highly stimulating introduction to Ancient Greece takes the polis as its starting point. Paul Cartledge uses the history of eleven major Greek cities to illuminate the most important and informative themes in Ancient Greek history, from the first documented use of the Greek language around 1400 BCE, through the glories of the Classical and Hellenistic periods, to the foundation of the Byzantine empire in around CE 330. Covering everything from politics, trade, and travel to slavery, gender, religion, and philosophy, it provides the ideal concise introduction to the history and culture of this remarkable civilization that helped give birth to the world as we know it.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Het oude Rome is belangrijk. De geschiedenis van het rijk, van zijn veroveringen, wreedheid en uitspattingen, is voor ons nog altijd een ijkpunt. Zijn mythen, verhalen, disputen en problemen houden ons nog altijd bezig. SPQR biedt een frisse kijk op de Romeinse geschiedenis door een van ’s werelds belangrijkste classici. Mary Beard onderzoekt niet alleen hoe Rome van een onbelangrijk dorp in Midden-Italië uitgroeide tot een wereldmacht die heerste over een gebied van Spanje tot in Syrië, maar ook hoe de Romeinen zichzelf en hun wereld zagen, en waarom dat van belang is tot in onze eeuw. Deze gezaghebbende geschiedenis omspant duizend jaar, en werpt een nieuw licht op veel aspecten van de Romeinse beschaving, van de slavernij en de religie tot het stromend water. Het is het definitieve boek over het oude Rome, verrassend en goedgeschreven.
