This Is Sparta!

This week’s Bookmonger podcast is with Paul A. Rahe, author of The Grand Strategy of Classical Sparta: The Persian Challenge. We talk about the guys who inspired the movie 300, whether their martial power and heroism saved Western civilization, and what their experience can teach Americans in the 21st century.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
