Herodotus Histories

by Simon Hornblower, Herodotus Histories Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Herodotus Histories book, Book VI of the Histories is one of Herodotus' most varied books, beginning with the final collapse of the Ionian Revolt and moving on to the Athenian triumph at Marathon (490 BC); it also includes fascinating material on Sparta, full of court intrigue and culminating in Kleomenes' grisly death, and there is comedy too, with Alkmeon's cramming clothes, boots, and even cheeks with gold dust, then Hippokleides 'dancing away his marriage'. In Herodotus' time, Marathon was already reaching almost legendary status, commemorated in epigrams and monuments, and in this edition a substantial introduction discusses Herodotus' relation to these other memorials. It also explores the place of the book in the Histories' overall structure, and pays particular attention to Herodotus' treatment of impiety. A new text is then accompanied by a full commentary, covering literary and historical aspects and offering help with translation. The volume is suitable for undergraduates, graduate students, teachers and scholars.

Herodotus Histories Book V

by Philip S. Peek, Herodotus Histories Book V Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Herodotus Histories Book V book, History begins with Herodotus (485–425 b.c.e.). Born in Halikarnassos, a gateway between the Greek and Persian worlds, Herodotus in his Histories narrates the great historical struggle between the Persian Empire and the Greek-speaking city-states at the dawn of the classical era. Herodotus does not merely list events or tell tales; his history inquires into the causes of events and casts its net wide to include ethnography and legend as well as political and military history. Book V of the Histories focuses on the Persians and their expansion into Thrakia and Makedonia, as well as their conflict with the Greeks of Ionia. Beginning in the timeless legends of prehistory, Herodotus discusses the customs of the Thrakians, offers insight into Sparta’s mindset, and narrates the struggle to restore democracy at Athens after the reign of the tyrant Peisistratos. The narrative of Book V sprawls over Asia, Africa, and Europe, naming more than 350 people and places. The reader will find in Herodotus a literate, keenly observant, wide-ranging guide to a time when Persia ruled 40 percent of the world's population and was confronted by an uneasy and fragile alliance of Greek city-states. In his introduction to the text and commentary, author Philip S. Peek outlines a process by which students of ancient Greek can develop translation and reading skills. For students’ convenience, Peek pairs the Greek text with the commentary and includes in the book’s appendices a case and function chart, an explanation of infinitives, a summary of the subjunctive and optative moods, a list of parsing terms, and a list of the 500 most commonly occurring Greek words. A comprehensive glossary rounds out the volume. As further aids to students, running vocabulary for each text section and a generalized list of the principal parts of verbs can be downloaded from oupress.com.

Persisches Feuer

by Tom Holland, Persisches Feuer Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Persisches Feuer book, Der populäre Bestseller aus Großbritannien vom Jungstar der Historikerszene Es geschah vor 2500 Jahren, dass Ost und West Krieg miteinander führten. Im 5. Jahrhundert v. Chr. war eine globale Supermacht fest entschlossen, zwei Staaten Wahrheit und Ordnung zu bringen, die sie für terroristische Schurkenstaaten ansah. Die Supermacht war Persien, dessen Könige das erste Weltreich gegründet hatten. Die terroristischen Staaten waren Athen und Sparta, eigenwillige Städte in einem weit abgelegenen armen und bergigen Land: Griechenland. Die Geschichte, wie die Bürger dieses Landes dem mächtigsten Mann der Welt widerstanden und ihn besiegten, ist eine der beeindruckendsten Episoden der Geschichte. "Persisches Feuer" gibt nicht nur eine dramatische Darstellung dieser großen Auseinandersetzung, sondern auch ein einzigartiges Gesamtbild von Ost und West. Von den Priestern in Babylon bis zur Geheimpolizei der Spartaner, von den Luxusgärten der Perser bis zu den athenischen Prostituierten, von Darius, dem Mörder und größten politischen Genie des Orients bis zu Themistokles, dem Mann, der den Westen rettete, werden alle Akteure in der faszinierenden Erzählung Tom Hollands lebendig. "Erzählte Geschichte vom Feinsten. Ein Buch, das mich wirklich gefesselt hat." Ian McEwan Tom Holland, geboren 1968, studierte in Cambridge und Oxford Geschichte. Der Autor und Journalist hat sich mit BBC-Sendungen über Herodot, Homer, Thukydides und Vergil einen Namen gemacht. Holland lebt mit Frau und zwei Kindern in London. Tom Holland ist Bestseller-Autor für Fiction und Historisches Buch. Er hat zahlreiche Auszeichnungen erhalten, u. a. "Steven-Runciman-Preis für historische Erzählungen" zusammen mit Robin Lane Fox.

Feldherren Krieger Und Strategen

by Raimund Schulz, Feldherren Krieger Und Strategen Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Feldherren Krieger Und Strategen book, Was waren das für Menschen, die sich jedes Jahr die Rüstung anlegten und dem Tod ins Auge sahen? Wie verliefen genau Schlachten in der Antike, und wie beeinflussten sie die große Politik? Der Autor revidiert uns vertraute Mythen: Nicht Sparta, sondern die Athener Demokratie war der aggressivste Staat der griechischen Welt. Marathon und Salamis waren keineswegs rauschende Siege, sondern glückliche Abwehrerfolge gegen einen nach wie vor überlegenen Gegner. Und Alexander gewann seine Schlachten nicht, weil er ein Genie war, sondern weil er die politischen Schwächen der Perser nutzte. Selbst das Christentum konnte sich am Ende der Antike der kriegerischen Realität nicht entziehen und erkannte im Sieg auf dem Schlachtfeld den Inbegriff des menschlichen Erfolgs auf Erden.
