Books Without Borders

Homer, Aeschylus, Galileo, Melville, and Madison Go to China

“Can the liberal arts be a worldwide conversation? Martha Franks thinks so and her book is a compelling story of using discussion of the classics to help convince her Chinese students that “it matters what they feel, think and believe.”  

—Mark Roosevelt, President, St. John’s College, Santa Fe, New Mexico

“This is a much-needed book, especially for students who aspire to real liberal arts education or for parents who believe that a life of arts, sciences, and thoughtful social questions surrounds and lives outside, as well as inside, our focus on occupations, careers, and industries.”

—J. Scott Lee, Former Executive Director,
Association for Core Texts and Courses
