Introductions to the Ancient World

There is also quite a lot of discussion of how Classics has developed, and what it has to contribute in the 21st century:

A regular interpreter of the classical world is Peter Jones. He contributes regularly to the press, in particular with a column devoted to pointing out contemporary parallels with ancient, ‘Ancient and Modern’, in The Spectator; a selection of these have been published, Ancient and Modern, (London: Duckworth, 1999). He ran a series first on learning Latin and then on learning Greek in the Daily Telegraph; these were very successful, and have also been published: Learn Latin (London: Duckworth,1997) and Learn Ancient Greek (London: Duckworth, 1998).
