I enjoyed this - way more readable than I would have thought. This is a rambling history of the Greeks and Persians in the 5th century BC. It is LONG, but I kind of felt like I was listening to the town gossip while I read this.

This is # 8 out of 133 of Clifton Fadiman's New Lifetime Reading Plan.

Recommends it for: popular and shcolars interested in travel, history, culture, ancient texts, historiography
Awonderful edition and translation, terrific notaion and a collector's edition, good for popiular and scholary as well.
The classis form one of our classic and original western historians. Shows how prolific he was and very interesting and often amusingly but charmingly caustic in hia remarks on "barbar" cultures!
