Publisher's Summary

There are always new ways to read and interpret the classics, even ones that are 2700 years old. Several years ago, Stephen Mitchell translated the first stanza of The Iliad for fun and then stuck his handiwork in a drawer. He came back to it later, and now he’s the translator of a new version of Homer’s epic poem that tells the story of a few weeks in the final year of the Trojan War.

Next, American foreign policy is crafted with constant tension between State Department diplomats and Defense Department hawks. Stephen Glain addresses this tension in his new book, State vs. Defense: The Battle to Define America’s Empire. He examines how and why America has become a more militaristic nation, and how “the military-industrial complex” that Eisenhower forewarned has set the country on a path of financial ruin.
