Herodotus is not only known as the “father of history”, as Cicero calls him, but also the father of ethnography; as well as tracing the history of medieval wars, his curiosity also frequently invites digression on the cultures of the peoples he introduces.While most of the information he gives is surprisingly accurate, he also entertains us with delicious tales of blind men and digging ants.This new readable translation is supplemented by an expansive note that provides readers with the information they need to appreciate the book in depth.ON THE SERIES: For more than 100 years classic world Oxford has made available the widest range of literature from all over the world.Each affordable volume reflects Oxford’s commitment to scholarship, providing more accurate text, plus a host of other useful features, including expert introductions by key authorities, helpful notes for clarifying the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study and much more.
