2 Blundell, Mary Whitlock HELPING FRIENDS AND HARMING ENEMIES A Study in Sophocles and Greek Ethics
Cambridge University Press 1989 0521351162 / 9780521351164 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Foxing/dustsoiling to top of textblock. Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). DJ has minor shelfwear. ; This book is the first detailed study of the plays of Sophocles through examination of a single ethical principle--the traditional Greek popular moral code of "helping friends and harming enemies." Five of the extant plays are discussed in detail from both a dramatic and an ethical standpoint, and the author concludes that ethical themes are not only integral to each drama, but are subjected to an implicit critique through the tragic consequences to which they give rise. Greek scholars and students of Greek drama and Greek thought will welcome this book, which is presented in such a way as to be accessible to specialists and nonspecialists alike. No knowledge of Greek is required. ; 312 pages

Foxing/dustsoiling to top of textblock. DJ has chipping to upper corners and minor edgewear. ; A magisterial assessment of the major historian of early Byzantium, by one of today's leading historians of late antiquity.

Today, questions of how we are to reconcile the Wars with Procopius' two minor works-the panegyrical Building and the sensational Secret History, still dominates current scholarship. ; 310 pages
