product description

Herodotus of Halicarnassus who was hailed by Cicero as the father of history wrote his histories around 440 BC. It is the earliest surviving work of nonfiction and a thrilling narrative account of (among other things) the war between the Persian Empire and the Greek city-states in the fifth century BC. With a wealth of information about ancient geography, ethnography, zoology, comparative anthropology, and much else, "The Histories" is also filled with bizarre and fanciful stories, which award-winning historian Tom Holland vividly captures in this major new translation highlighting Herodotus s superb storytelling gifts and displaying his delightful curiosity alongside his flair for riveting epic drama. Featuring an introduction and notes by Professor Paul Cartledge, a translator s preface, an index of significant persons and places, maps, and a supplementary index, this translation makes Herodotus irresistible reading once more.
