Description: From the editor of the widely praisedLandmark ThucydidesandLandmark Herodotus, here is a new edition of theHellenika, the major primary source for the events of the final seven years and aftermath of the Peloponnesian War. Hellenikacovers the years between 411 and 362 B.C.E., a particularly dramatic period during which the alliances among Athens, Sparta, Thebes, and Persia were in constant flux. And along with the volumes of Herodotus and Thucydides, it completes an ancient narrative of the military and political history of classical Greece. Illustrated, annotated, and filled with maps, this edition gives us a new, authoritative, and accessible translation by John Marincola, an introduction by David Thomas, and fourteen appendices written by some of the premiere classics scholars at work today. And unlike any other edition of theHellenika, it also includes the relevant texts of Diodorus Siculus and the Oxyrhynchus historian, which constitute the only contemporaneous works that can be used to assess Xenophon's reliability and quality as a historian. Like the two Landmark editions that preceded it,The Landmark Xenophon's Hellenikais certain to be the most readable and comprehensive edition available of this essential history.
