This investigation relies on a rash bet: to write the biography of two of the most famous statues in Antiquity, the Tyrannicides. Representing the murderers of the tyrant Hipparchus in full action, these statues erected on the Agora of Athens have been in turn worshipped, outraged, and imitated. They have known hours of glory and moments of hardships, which have transformed them into true icons of Athenian democracy. The subject of this book is the remarkable story of this group statue and the ever-changing significance of its tyrant-slaying subjects. The first part of this book, in six chapters, tells the story of the murder of Hipparchus and of the statues of the two tyrannicides from the end of the sixth century to the aftermath of the restoration of democracy in 403. The second part, in three chapters, chronicles the fate and influence of the statues from the fourth century to the end of the Roman Empire. These chapters are followed by an epilogue that reveals new life for the statues in modern art and culture, including how Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union made use of their iconography. By tracing the long trajectory of the tyrannicides-in deed and art-Azoulay provides a rich and fascinating microhistory that will be of interest to readers of classical art and history.

Civilizations of the Ancient World offers a uniquely visual approach to exploring the cultures of the key civilizations of ancient times. By combining historic engravings with a modern commentary that is at once authoritative and accessible, it creates both a visual celebration and invaluable reference for all students of early history. The main section of the book focuses on ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Rome and Greece, offering a detailed exposition of each in turn through thematic spreads depicting many aspects of their cultures. Government, society, war, religion, work, leisure, shelter, food, costume and daily life are all unveiled in vivid detail through carefully designed compositions of both coloured and monotone engravings. A second section features timelines, maps and overviews of the other key civilizations that were flourishing throughout the world at that time. Thus the reader is offered both a close-up view of the four major peoples who hold an endless fascination for modern readers, plus a broader panorama of the global cultures that shaped the ancient world.
