"'In the army there was a certain Xenophon . . .' Here is a new translation of Xenophon's most beautiful work, done for the first time with the care due to its political acuteness and its philosophical importance. Wayne Ambler and Eric Buzzetti invite us to ponder and enjoy Xenophon's third-person, autobiographical masterpiece."―Harvey C. Mansfield, Professor of Government, Harvard University
"This is a superb translation of a timeless classic of political philosophy. The Anabasis is the most important writing of the political philosopher Xenophon and any introductory or advanced study of the history of political theory must give prominence to this work. So rich is the Anabasis that it will naturally command the interest of scholars and students of political and military history, political leadership, military science, and classics."―Peter Ahrensdorf, Davidson College
