Xenophon was a Greek soldier who played a key role in several military skirmishes and attacks throughout his life. Later in his life, he began to write down his recollections of these battles and other key political and cultural events, thus becoming one of ancient Greece's most important historians. Hellenica offers Xenophon's first-hand account of many events in the Peloponnesian War. It is the only surviving account of the final years of the war and the period immediately following

One of the greatest and most influential thinkers in human history, Greek philosopher Socrates was ultimately sentenced to death after being convicted of impiety and corrupting the minds of Athens' youth.

In The Apology, Socrates' student Xenophon explains why his prominent teacher chose what some would consider an ignominious end

Xenophōntos Peri hippikēs by Xenophon( )

5 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and held by 1,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On Horsemanship is a treatise on horsemanship. Written c. 350 BC it is one of the oldest such in existence. Xenophon details the best qualities to look for in a horse, and the non-abusive training of a horse in classical dressage and for military and general use. He quotes other, apparently more celebrated contemporaries of his, whose texts have since been lost, particularly a man named only "Simon."
The education of Cyrus by Xenophon( Book )

17 editions published between 1911 and 2007 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Xenophon's masterpiece The Education of Cyrus - a work admired by Machiavelli for its lessons on leadership - is at last available in a new English translation for a new century. Also known as the Cyropaedia, this philosophical novel is loosely based on the accomplishments of Cyrus the Great, founder of the vast Persian Empire that later became the archrival of the Greeks in the classical age. It offers an extraordinary portrait of political ambition, talent, and their ultimate limits. The writings of Xenophon are increasingly recognized as important works of political philosophy. In The Education of Cyrus, Xenophon confronts the vexing problem of political instability by exploring the character and behavior of the ruler. Impressive though his successes are, however, Cyrus is also examined in the larger human context, in which love, honor, greed, revenge, folly, piety, and the search for wisdom all have important parts to play. Wayne Ambler's prose captures the charm and drama of the work while also achieving great accuracy. His introduction, annotations, and glossary help the reader to appreciate both the engaging story itself and the volume's contributions to philosophy

The march up country : a translation of Xenophon's Anabasis by Xenophon( Book )

15 editions published between 1901 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Xenophon (ca. 430 to ca. 354 BCE) was a wealthy Athenian and friend of Socrates. He left Athens in 401 and joined an expedition including ten thousand Greeks led by the Persian governor Cyrus against the Persian king. After the defeat of Cyrus, it fell to Xenophon to lead the Greeks from the gates of Babylon back to the coast through inhospitable lands. Later he wrote the famous vivid account of this 'March Up-Country' (Anabasis); but meanwhile he entered service under the Spartans against the Persian king, married happily, and joined the staff of the Spartan king, Agesilaus. But Athens was at war with Sparta in 394 and so exiled Xenophon. The Spartans gave him an estate near Elis where he lived for years writing and hunting and educating his sons. Reconciled to Sparta, Athens restored Xenophon to honour but he preferred to retire to Corinth. Xenophon's Anabasis is a true story of remarkable adventures

On revenues by Xenophon( )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though he may be best remembered as a close friend and follower of Socrates who recorded many of the philosopher's views for posterity, Xenophon was a significant figure in his own right, especially as a soldier and civic leader. After Athens was defeated in the Peloponnesian War, the once-affluent city was drifting toward insolvency. Xenophon wrote On Revenues to circulate his proposals for generating more funds for the beleaguered community
Memorabilia by Xenophon( )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An essential text for understanding Socrates, Xenophon's Memorabilia is the compelling tribute of an affectionate student to his teacher, providing a rare firsthand account of Socrates' life and philosophy. The Memorabilia is invaluable both as a work of philosophy in its own right and as a complement to the study of Plato's dialogues. The longest of Xenophon's four Socratic works, it is particularly revealing about the differences between Socrates and his philosophical predecessors.Far more obviously than Plato in the dialogues, Xenophon calls attention in the Memorabilia to his own relationship with Socrates. A colorful and fully engaged writer, Xenophon aims above all to convince his readers of the greatness of Socrates' thought and the disgracefulness of his conviction on a capital charge. In thirty-nine chapters, Xenophon presents Socrates as an ordinary person and as a great benefactor to those associated with him
