The Greek wars : the failure of Persia by George Cawkwell( )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 1,637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Greek Wars is an important contribution to the understanding of the relations of Greek states with the Persian Empire. George Cawkwell discusses, rather than narrates, the whole conflict of East and West from the middle of the sixth century B.C., when Cyrus the Great extended Persian rule over the Greek cities of Asia, down to the defeat of Darius III by Alexander at Gaugamela in 331 B.C. Like others in the field, Cawkwell rejects the once prevalent Hellenocentric perspective on the conflict and takes a radically sceptical view of Greek accounts."--Jacket

Greek Wars, The by George Cawkwell( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ""Greek Wars"" treats of the whole course of Persian relations with the Greeks from the coming of Cyrus in the 540s down to Alexander the Great's defeat of Darius III in 331 BC. Cawkwell discusses from a Persian perspective major questions such as why Xerxes' invasion of Greece failed, and how important a part the Great King played in Greek affairs in the fourth century. Cawkwell's views are at many points original: in particular, his explanation of how and why the Persian invasion of Greece failed challenges the prevailing orthodoxy, as does his view of the importance of Persia in Greek a

Thucydides and the Peloponnesian War by George Cawkwell( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Understanding the history of Athens in the all important years of the second half of the fifth century BC is largely dependent on the legacy of the historian Thucydides. Previous scholarship has tended to view Thucydides' account as infallible. This book challenges that received wisdom, advancing original and controversial views of Thucydides' account of the Peloponnesian War; his misrepresentation of Alcibiades and Demosthenes; his relationship with Pericles; and his views on the Athenian Empire.-Back cover
