Most widely held works by Russell Meiggs
A history of Greece to the death of Alexander the Great by J. B Bury( Book )

91 editions published between 1937 and 2003 in English and held by 1,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, originally published in 1900, was the major work of the classical historian J.B. Bury. It became a standard textbook on the topic of ancient Greek history to the death of Alexander the Great for almost a century, and in its updated form is still studied today. Bury had studied philosophy as well as classics at Trinity College, Dublin, and had travelled widely in Greece, but until the publication of this work was better known for his two-volume History of the Later Roman Empire (also reissued in this series), and many of his other works also deal with the Byzantine period. He describes in the preface his decision to limit the extent of his history: 'compression into a single volume often produces a more useful book'. This magisterial and very readable synthesis of political and military history encompasses nearly three millennia and the whole of the Mediterranean and Near East

The first comprehensive attempt to re-examine all the literary and epigraphic evidence, old and new, in detail, on the subject of Athenian imperialism in the 5th c. B.C. Thucydides' acid analysis of the character of Athenian control is challenged here, the result of work on inscriptions whose number has been significantly increased by modern excavations and the now trend in academia to encourage new questions and answers to old questions
