While working on editing Jim DeVoto's book on Agesilaos II, Eurypontid king of Sparta, Jim was kind enough to loan me this book about the Persian Empire, essential for understanding Greek politics of the period. It was a good recommendation. Cook's text appeared to be thorough for its length and suitable for someone at my level of understanding. It also was quite readable, even amusing at times.
