Accomplished classicist Bettany Hughes returns with a scholarly and accessible biography of one of ancient Greece’s leading lights – Socrates. The Hemlock Cup painstakingly pieces together Socrates’ life, following in his footsteps across Greece and Asia minor and examining the new archaeological discoveries that shed light on his world. Perhaps most striking about this wonderful book is that the story it relates is just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.
