“Unquestionably the best English translation of Herodotus . . . in the past half-century.” —The Times Literary Supplement

In Tom Holland’s vibrant new translation, one of the great masterpieces of Western history springs to life. Herodotus of Halicarnassus—hailed by Cicero as the “Father of History”—composed his histories around 440 bc. The earliest surviving work of nonfiction, The Histories works its way from the Trojan War through an epic account of the war between the Persian empire and the Greek citystates in the fifth century bc, recording landmark events that ensured the development of Western culture and still capture our modern imagination. Beautifully packaged with a comprehensive array of tools to guide first-time readers and experts alike, this accessible translation makes Herodotus fresh and irresistible once more.
