A fine book , one of the series "hinges of History". Covering the heritage we in the West have received from the Classical Greeks including good chinks of our language, stories, music, art etc.etc. I hadn't thought of it but we would truly have a different world had Homer not been there and so many others including the Platos and Aristotles etc. In shot it ties us to our Greek Cultural history. That also includes the "Christian" heritage much of which was Greek not Jewish.
