Hegemony and Greek historians

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 1994 - History - 195 pages
In this book, John Wickersham studies the concept of hegemony in the histories of Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon, and Ephorus. He shows the growth of hegemony as a major theme of the historians and an important concern of classical Greek civilization. While concentrating on the single theme of hegemony, Wickersham also offers an overall appreciation of each author studied and of the Classical Greek historians as a group.
