Reviews

Praise for the third edition (2002): 'To write a standard history which contains the essential material and yet is interesting and says things which have not been said before is one of the hardest tasks. Hornblower has performed it excellently.' -- Times Literary Supplement 'Hornblower's excellence as a historian, and his wide and responsible use of sources, together with attractive packaging, re-establishes the book's position as a benchmark for historians ... It is packed to the brim ... with an abundance of erudite observations.' -- Scholia Reviews
