'Altogether, this edition in a crowded field offers many unique annotations complementing its fresh and accurate translation.' Donald Lateiner, Ancient History Bulletin

It is no small achievement to convey in modern English the literary qualities of this most political of ancient historians.' Liz Sawyer, Oxonian Review
