Editorial Reviews

“One thing long lacking in the English-speaking world hasbeen the in-depth, full political narrative … .This …is what Errington's book provides. The author has a sharp eye forintrigue, a gift for interpreting recalcitrant inscriptions, and aclear, brisk prose style. His command of the sources and the by nowvast scholarship is masterly. As a result, his text will be equallyinvaluable—a rare achievement-for students and fellowscholars. Highly recommended.” (Choice Reviews,December 2008)

"The author, emeritus professor of ancient history at theUniversity of Marburg, highlights the relationships between Greekcity-states and Macedonian monarchies." (Times Higher EducationSupplement)
