Greek athletics offers a clear window on many important aspects of ancient culture. Thomas F. Scanlon's comprehensive overview of Greek athletics explores when and how athletics was linked with religion, upbringing, gender, sexuality, and social values in an evolution from Homer until the Roman period. It presents original findings of importance to all those interested in ancient and modern sports, religion, gender studies, sexuality, and cultural studies generally.

certainly an important book: it is the first to address this essential nexus of issues in Greek culture directly...a treasury of detailed accounts of many issues in an important area. * Andrew Lear, Classical Studies *
Everywhere there are intelligent insights ... an important contribution to scholarship in this field. * The Journal of Classics Teaching *
Scanlon's excellent new study of the sexual dimension in Greek sport ... Thomas Scanlon's richly informative book represents a culmination of a lifetime's study of ancient athletics. * Erich Segal, Times Literary Supplement *
