Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Excellent translation--useful for contemporary students with no grasp of Greek and little patience with archais English."--Morton Schagrin, SUNY Fredonia

"This is a very good book. It is clearly written, yet at the same time it is still of high scholarly value."--Stephen Joseph, Framingham State College
