The long march : Xenophon and the ten thousand ( Book )
5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 447 libraries worldwide
"The March of the Ten Thousand is one of the most famous military adventures in the ancient world. Its fearless army of Greek mercenaries marched through western Asia (modern Turkey and Iraq) in 401 BC to 399 BC, their hopes and hardships recounted by Xenophon the Athenian, an admiring pupil of Socrates. Xenophon's history of the Long March, or Anabasis, became a classic of Greek literature." "In this book, twelve leading scholars explore the Anabasis, a deceptively simple and profoundly rich source of social and cultural history and the mentality of the ancient Greek participants. The contributors explore a wide range of topics, from Xenophon's values, motives and manner as a writer, to the outlook of his companions as mercenary soldiers, from his descriptions of religion in soldiers' lives to their relations with women, boys and the many foreign peoples encountered during the march."--Jacket.

Die klassische Welt : eine Weltgeschichte von Homer bis Hadrian by Robin Lane Fox ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 48 libraries worldwide
Ein großartiges Panorama antiker Geschichte, so fulminant erzählt wie ein historischer Roman.Auf den Spuren des antikenbegeisterten römischen Kaisers Hadrian, der um 120 n. Chr. begann, sein gesamtes Imperium von Schottland bis Ägypten zu bereisen, lässt Robin Lane Fox die Antike lebendig werden,von den homerischen Epen über die Erfindung der Demokratie und den stürmischen Aufstieg des Alexanderreichs bis zur römischen Kaiserzeit und den Anfängen des Christentums. Die Fülle der historischen Ereignisse von 1000 Jahren ordnet der Autor entlang dreier Leitthemen: Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit und Luxus - Themen, die schon in der Antike und bis zum heutigen Tag die Auseinandersetzung mit der Gesellschaft bestimmen. Anschaulich und lebensvoll schildert Lane Fox,wie sich zunächst die griechische und auf ihren Schultern die römische Klassik entwickelt hat und wie antike Geschmacks- und Wertmaßstäbe uns bis heute prägen.
