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.
