Resumo:
"In its present usage, the word "hero" seems an all-purpose moniker applied to everyone from Medal of Honor recipients to celebrities to comic book characters. This book explores the Western idea of the hero, from its initial use in ancient Greece, where it identified demigods or aristocratic, mortal warriors, through its present-day usage"--Provided by publisher.
