       index. 
520    "The Spartans: A Very Short Introduction separates myth 
       from reality to reveal the best-and the worst-of the 
       Spartans. Famous throughout history for their doomed stand
       at Thermopylae, and immortalized as the epitome of martial
       prowess, today the Spartans both fascinate and appal us. 
       Looking beyond the popular image of musclebound soldiers 
       with long hair and red cloaks, this VSI reveals key 
       aspects of Spartan society. This includes their civic 
       structure, day-to-day lifestyle, and traditions. It also 
       indicates how the legacy of this ancient society remains 
       present in today's many Spartan-inspired sports teams, 
       films, and exercise regimes"--|cProvided by publisher.
