"[S]parkles on every page with apposite and often novel interpretations that shed light where there was darkness. ... It is a model of its kind: a generous, thoughtful, and deeply insightful interpretation of an ancient text, and one that is clear and well written." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"In this stimulating volume Michael Flower provides a comprehensive approach to
Xenophon's Anabasis that greatly enhances our understanding of its narrative art and historical reliability. It is by far the most intelligent and thoughtful analysis of the

his detailed knowledge of the scholarship of others." --Classical Philology
