PortraitCharles W. Hedrick Jr is Professor of History at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is the author of History and Silence (2000) and the Decrees of the Demotionidai (1990), and the co-editor of Demokratia (1996) and The Birth of Democracy (1993).
Pressestimmen"Detailed but lively, this book offers an introduction to the sources of evidence about ancient history. Hedrick has a keen sense of irony for the varying ways in which ancient and modern people read the same documents and he is an ideal guide to help us bridge the gap." Barry Strauss, Cornell University
