'... an interesting range of further perspectives ... This well-produced book succeeds in treating anger as a topic that can open vistas on ancient thinking about psychology, the body, character, social interaction, gender, and the relationship of humans to models of both animal and divine behaviour ... The volume is a desirable purchase for all good university libraries.' The Journal of Classics Teaching
