All Things Under the Sun

How Modern Ideas are Really Ancient

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Natural disasters, the financial crisis, political strife, the Middle East, the treatment of wounded soldiers, free and fair elections, foreign relations, travel delays, death and taxes… The issues that make the headlines today are also the things people worried about 2,000 and more years ago. Learning how the people of the past dealt with them can prepare us to face the issues affecting us today. The past is a virtual laboratory in which we can study how cause and effect plays out in different circumstances. Combining a researcher’s skill at finding unexpected connections in everyday events and a historian’s knowledge of source material, Lindsay Powell takes a clear eyed and often witty look at modern times through the longer perspective of ancient history and reveals that, as the old adage goes, ‘all things under the Sun, there’s nothing new’. Lindsay Powell is a historian, media communications professional and writer who has had a life long interest in the ancient world.
