The perfect introduction to Herodotus, this Norton CriticalEdition includes the complete text of The Histories. Thetranslation is fully annotated and is accompanied by anintroduction, a chronology of events, and a note on the PersianWars. Seven maps?all new to the Second Edition?givereaders a visual understanding of events and places, 490?479B.C.E.

New tothe Second Edition are contrasting accounts, by Diodorus of Sicilyand Strabo, of the Amazons who were believed to be living in themountainous regions. "Commentaries" is divided into two sections. Early moderninterpretations are represented by Isaac Taylor, John Stuart Mill,and Thomas Babington Macaulay. Seventeen modernassessments?three of them new to the SecondEdition?focus on historical origins and backgrounds,Herodotus's place in history, and central issues concerning boththe Persian Wars and Herodotus's reckoning of them.
