The Satires of Horace offer a hodgepodge of genres and styles: philosophy and bawdry; fantastic tales and novelistic vignettes; portraits of the poet, his contemporaries, and his predecessors; jibes, dialogue, travelogue, rants, and recipes; and poetic effects in a variety of modes. For all their apparent lightheartedness, however, the poems both illuminate and bear the marks of a momentous event in world history, one in which Horace himself played an active role--the death of the Roman Republic and the birth of the Principate. John Svarlien's lively blank-verse translation reflects the wide range of styles and tones deployed throughout Horace's eighteen sermons or conversations, deftly reproducing their distinctive humor while tracking the poet's changing mannerisms and moods. David Mankin's Introduction offers a brief account of the political upheavals in which Horace participated as well as the social setting in which his Satires were produced, and points up hallmarks of the poet's distinctive brand of satire. His detailed commentary offers a behind-the-scenes look at Roman society and an often between-the-lines examination of a key work of one of Rome's sharpest observers.
The author of the 400,000-copy bestseller On Killing reveals how violent video games have ushered in a new era of mass homicide--and what we must do about it. Paducah, Kentucky, 1997: a 14-year-old boy shoots eight students in a prayer circle at his school. Littleton, Colorado, 1999: two high school seniors kill a teacher, twelve other students, and then themselves. Utoya, Norway, 2011: a political extremist shoots and kills sixty-nine participants in a youth summer camp. Newtown, Connecticut, 2012: a troubled 20-year-old man kills 20 children and six adults at the elementary school he once attended. What links these and other horrific acts of mass murder? A young person's obsession with video games that teach to kill. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, who in his perennial bestseller On Killingrevealed that most of us are not "natural born killers" - and who has spent decades training soldiers, police, and others who keep us secure to overcome the intrinsic human resistance to harming others and to use firearms responsibly when necessary - turns a laser focus on the threat posed to our society by violent video games. Drawing on crime statistics, cutting-edge social research, and scientific studies of the teenage brain, Col. Grossman shows how video games that depict antisocial, misanthropic, casually savage behavior can warp the mind - with potentially deadly results. His book will become the focus of a new national conversation about video games and the epidemic of mass murders that they have unleashed.
In Laudem Iustini Augusti Minoris
The few scraps of information which we have about Flavius Cresconius Corippus come almost exclusively from his two poems, the lohannis and the In laudem lustini Augusti minoris. Despite this he was still the last important Latin author of Late Antiquity. Corippus's poem on the accession of Justin II is considered a most unusual work. Unlike the lohannis, so far as we know the only other product by the same author, it tells of no epic battles against barbarian peoples. Instead we have a narrative poem, covering in great detail the accession of an emperor, the first week of his reign and (in part, for the poem breaks off before the end) his inauguration as consul. This is the first book to utilize or interpret this immensely valuable body of evidence as a whole. Cameron has contributed to one of the most urgent tasks of modern scholars of late antiquity and (still more) of the Byzantine period-the provision of a readable text with translation and commentary of this important work which until now was only available in plain and inadequate editions.

Histoire des femmes en Occident
Projet démesuré que de couvrir près de vingt siècles d'histoire du monde antique gréco-romain, de parcourir un espace qui va des rivages de la Méditerranée à ceux des mers du Nord, des colonnes d'Héraklès aux rives de l'Indus, de se plonger dans des documents aussi divers que les tombes d'une nécropole, la stèle inscrite plaquée aux murs du sanctuaire, le rouleau de papyrus, la scène peinte sur la panse d'un vase... et une littérature grecque et latine qui, si elle n'a pas donné la parole aux femmes, a beaucoup parlé d'elles. On l'aura deviné, ce livre n'a pas pour fonction de remplacer l'énorme production qui existe en ce domaine. Il aborde un petit nombre seulement des questions qui nous ont paru importantes pour aider à comprendre la place des femmes dans le monde antique et, plus encore peut-être, dans la perspective d'un ensemble de volumes traitant de l'histoire des femmes, comprendre les fondements d'habitudes mentales, de mesures juridiques, d'institutions sociales qui ont duré des siècles en Occident.
