Perhaps the ultimate model for making history relevant. . . .A superb and often inspiring work. - KIRKUS REVIEWS



The legend of the Trojan War, with its twists of tragedy and powerful portraits of human nature, has transfixed readers for thousands of years. In this updated edition of DATELINE: TROY, Paul Fleischman juxtaposes his absorbing retelling of the Trojan War with newspaper clippings from the First World War to the current War on Terror. As the story unfolds, striking similarities between the world of Homer's ILIAD and our contemporary world become clear. Proud Achilles, prophetic Cassandra, crafty Odysseus, and all the rest are reflected in our leaders, enemies, and next-door neighbors. DATELINE: TROY vividly shows both the relevance of the past and its resonance with the present.
