Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The Memorabilia, a tribute of an affectionate student to his teacher, is valuable both as a work of philosophy in its own right and as a complement to the study of Plato's dialogues. This translation is based on the 1934 text edited by Charles Hude. It is prefaced by a substantial introduction by Christopher Bruell and includes ample annotations by Bonnette. Annotation c.

From the Publisher
"This new translation of Xenophon's Memorabilia . . . provides something that all the other translations do not: it is a current and faithful English translation supplemented by introductory text and extensive notes which serves well its intended audience—primarily scholars outside of the field of classical studies who possess little to no Greek. . . . This edition will certainly meet the needs of all scholars and students having an interest in Socrates, . . . in political science, . . . history, law, and philosophy. . . . If, as is implicit in the text, the intention of Bonnette is to make Xenophon's Memorabilia more accessible to a larger audience, then she certainly has succeeded."—Bryn Mawr Classical Review
