  • "About the history of Ancient Greece, focusing on the Greek wars."@en
  • "-- The Histories"@en
  • "The story of the Greek city-states uniting to repel a superior Persian army is the main theme in this classical narrative, but Herodotus fleshes out his text with digressions, describing the wonders of Egypt and recounting stories and folk tales."
  • "The first great prose work in European literature. Its main theme is the heroic and successful struggle of a small and divided Greece against the mighty empire of Persia--with its underlying conflict between the absolutism of the East and the free institutions of the West."
  • "This work comprises the first western historical writing. It provides a history of the then known world, and provides answers to questions such as: why did Pheidippides run from Marathon to Athens and why did Leonides and the Spartans comb their hair before the battle of Thermopylae."@en
  • "Herodotus is not only the father of the art and the science of historical writing but also one of the Western tradition's most compelling storytellers. In tales such as that of Gyges'who murders Candaules, the king of Lydia, and unsurps his throne and his marriage bed, thereby bringing on, generations later, war with the Persians'he laid bare the intricate human entanglements at the core of great historical events. In his love for the stranger, more marvelous facts of the world, he infused his magnificent history with a continuous awareness of the mythic and the wonderful. (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)."@en
  • "This volume includes a wealth of helpful footnotes; more than a dozen maps and illustrations; a chronology of the Archaic Age; a glossary of main characters, places, and terms; suggested further reading; and an index of proper nouns."@en
  • ""The father of history," as Cicero called him, and a writer possessed of remarkable narrative gifts, enormous scope, and considerable charm, Herodotus has always been beloved by readers well-versed in the classics. Compelled by his desire to "prevent the traces of human events from being erased by time," Herotodus recounts the incidents preceding and following the Persian Wars. He gives us much more than military history, though, providing the fullest portrait of the classical world of the 5th and 6th centuries. --Publisher."
  • "Recounts the causes and history of the wars between the Greek city-states and Persia."@en
  • "-- ? -- ? ?With a wealth of information about ancient geography, ethnography, zoology, comparative anthropology, and much else, The Histories."@en
  • "Considered to be one of the founding works of western history, The Histories by the Greek historian Herodotus serves as a comprehensive record of the history and politics of ancient Greece, its allies, and its enemies, during the fifth century BC. Covering the period leading up to and during the Greco-Persian Wars, Herodotus's written account was based on interviews and stories collected during his extensive travels throughout the ancient world. Although criticized, like many scholars of that time, for manipulating events and accounts in order to improve the narrative tone, Herodotus's writings continue to be a relevant and telling depiction of life in ancient times.
