Reviews

?One thing long lacking in the English-speaking world has been the in-depth, full political narrative ? .This ? is what Errington's book provides. The author has a sharp eye for intrigue, a gift for interpreting recalcitrant inscriptions, and a clear, brisk prose style. His command of the sources and the by now vast scholarship is masterly. As a result, his text will be equally invaluable?a rare achievement-for students and fellow scholars. Highly recommended.? (Choice Reviews, December 2008) "The author, emeritus professor of ancient history at the University of Marburg, highlights the relationships between Greek city-states and Macedonian monarchies." (Times Higher Education Supplement)
