Product Details


“The most thrilling volume in this fine series.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A sumptuously annotated and lavishly illustrated new edition of The Campaigns of Alexander. . . . Arrian is by far our best and most reliable source for the events he describes.” —The Wall Street Journal
“Pamela Mensch’s new translation is both literal and fast-paced. . . . An ideal introductory text to the career of Alexander, [that] will introduce readers to an accessible ancient historian.” —The New Criterion

“Illuminating. . . . Alexander’s conquests stretched across the known world—this is the first edition of Arrian to show that world in all its vastness.” —The National

Praise for the Landmark Series

The Landmark Xenophon’s Hellenika

“Lavish. . . . Outstanding. . . . There is nothing else like [it].” —The New York Review of Books
“Truly worthy of the series name. . . . Strassler and the other contributors bring Xenophon to life.” —Sacramento Book Review
The Landmark Herodotus

“The most densely annotated, richly illustrated, and user-friendly edition of his Histories ever to appear.” —Daniel Mendelsohn, The New Yorker
“A real service. . . . Considerably improves accessibility by integrating hundreds of maps and extensive timelines . . . [and] amplifies the first historian’s own epic accomplishment.” —Forbes
The Landmark Thucydides
“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.” —The Classical Quarterly
