A Greek Classic, Herodotus' history covers how a small band of the city-states kept the Persians at bay, yet also includes a number of fascinating digressions of both truth and legend. A compelling look at the world through the lens of the fifth century B.C. 716 pages, indexed, softcover.
Translated by Aubrey de Sélincourt with an introduction and Notes by John M. Marincola.
“De Sélincourt’s pacy, natural-sounding, rendering, as superbly revised and annotated by John Marincola…was a game-changer…still reads freshly and is a bestseller six decades after its first publication.”
--Edith Hall, Times Literary Supplement
