Prof. Scheidel writes: "I teach history at Stanford and have been trying to escape from Classics for many years.
"I am donating a copy of my latest book, "Escape from Rome" -- a title inspired by the movie "Escape from New York" (hence the background). I will include an authoritative prediction of whether we will escape our current calamities in 2021: if you buy the book you will be the only (other) person to know.!"
All items are shipped directly from donor of the item to winning bidder at the donor's expense. Donors have agreed to ship items between Sept 14-31. The WCC, the SCS, the individual donors, and the auction organizers accept no liability for items that are not received or fail to meet the bidder's expectations for whatever reason. No donations to the Covid-19 Relief fund will be returned regardless. The 5% processing fee covers the costs of Bidding Owl, this secure auction platform, so that the full value of your bid goes to WCC-SCS Covid-19 Relief Fund.
