Pagans and Christians In the Mediterranean World from the Second Century AD to the Conversion of Constantine

Pagans and Christians In the Mediterranean World from the Second Century AD to the Conversion of Constantine

Author: Robin Lane Fox Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/10/2005

From the second century AD to the conversion of the first Christian emperor, Constantine, Robin Lane Fox's Pagans and Christians in the Mediterranean World gives a fascinating new perspective on an extraordinary era. The transition from pagan to Christian in the ancient Mediterranean world was a process whose effects we still live with today. How did this monumental conversion come about? How did Christianity compare and compete with the pagan gods in the Roman Empire? This scholarly work, from award-winning historian Robin Lane Fox, places Christians and pagans side by side in the context of civic life and contrasts their religious experiences, visions, cults and oracles. Leading up to the time of the first Christian emperor, Constantine, the book aims to enlarge and confirm the value of contemporary evidence, some of which has only recently been discovered. 'This brilliant book is a wholly unexpected and central contribution to its subject. What is more it is readable and rereadable, even gripping' Peter Levi, Spectator 'Important and learned' Financial Times 'A massive and humane study...On my shelf it will rest with pride between Edward Gibbon and Peter Brown' Telegraph 'On the one hand a magisterial analysis and reconstruction of an apparently remote and alien society, on the other a detailed study of the single most significant process in our history' The Times Robin Lane Fox (b. 1946) is a Fellow of New College, Oxford, and a University Reader in Ancient History. His other books include The Classical World, Alexander the Great, Pagans and Christians and The Unauthorized Version. He was historical advisor to Oliver Stone on the making of Stone's film Alexander, for which he waived all his fees on condition that he could take part in the cavalry charge against elephants which Stone staged in the Moroccan desert.

Enriching the Sociological Imagination How Radical Sociology Changed the Discipline

Enriching the Sociological Imagination How Radical Sociology Changed the Discipline

Author: Rhonda F. Levine Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/10/2005

Since the 1960s, radical sociology has had far more influence on mainstream sociology than many observers imagine. This book pairs seminal articles with new reflective essays written by the founders of progressive sociology, including Fred Block, Edna Bonacich, Samuel Bowles, Herbert Gintis, Val Burris, G. William Domhoff, Richard Flacks, Harvey Molotch, Goran Therborn, and Erik Olin Wright. The book highlights the wider impact of radical sociology and shows how the work of these and other writers has continued to influence sociology's continuing interest in capitalism, class, race, gender, power, and progressive social change. It also describes future directions for a critical sociology relevant to a multicultural and global world.
