From the PublisherPraise for the Landmark Series:
THE LANDMARK HERODOTUS
"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."
"A real service.... Considerably improves accessibility by integrating hundreds of maps and extensive timelines.... [and] amplifies the first historian's own epic accomplishment."
THE LANDMARK THUCYDIDES
"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."
