The Landmark Xenophon's Hellenika Now on Sale

From the editor of the widely praised The Landmark Thucydides and The Landmark Herodotus, a new edition of Xenophon’s Hellenika, the primary source for the events of the final seven years and aftermath of the Peloponnesian War, is now on sale from Pantheon Books.

Praise for the Landmark Series:


“The most densely annotated, richly illustrated, and user-friendly edition of his Histories ever to appear.”
—Daniel Mendelsohn, The New Yorker

“Stunning…. Bears the same superb production and scholarly qualities of his earlier The Landmark Thucydides…. Andrea Purvis’s new translation is taut and lucid.”
Houston Chronicle

“A real service…. Considerably improves accessibility by integrating hundreds of maps and extensive timelines…. [and] amplifies the first historian’s own epic accomplishment.”


“A magnificent edition of the great historian’s The Peloponnesian War.”
Los Angeles Times

“Without question, this is the finest edition of Thucydides’ history ever produced. It is a treasure.”
The Washington Times

“The editor and his contributors have asked themselves the fundamental question: how can one best present and interpret the work of one of the most fascinating but difficult of ancient authors to a modern audience? They have answered this question brilliantly.”
Classical Quarterly
