schema:description"In over six thousand entries ranging from long articles to brief definitions, the third edition incorporates the insights and interests of a new generation of classical scholars. Readers will find substantial coverage of women in the ancient world with entries on abortion, breastfeeding, and motherhood; sexuality including homosexuality, love and friendship, contraception, and pornography; Asia and the Far East with entries ranging from Gandhara to the Persian Gulf; Jews; and early Christians. In addition, new thematic articles reflect the current emphasis on multidisciplinary approaches to classical studies. These articles include anthropology and the classics, Marxism and classical antiquity, and literary theory and classical studies, while others examine issues of general interest to modern readers such as race, class struggle, ethnicity, alcoholism, incest, propaganda, suicide, the Greek concept of pollution, and much more."@en
