Praise for "The Histories: "
Unquestionably the best English translation of Herodotus to have appeared in the past half-century I am in awe of Tom Holland s achievement, and have no doubt it will bear rich fruit in bringing Herodotus to public attention
Edith Hall, "Times Literary Supplement"
Lively, engaging version of the "Histories" [an] admirable translation
Praise for "In the Shadow of the Sword"
"Written with flamboyant elegance and energetic intensity, Holland delivers a brilliant tour de force of revisionist scholarship and thrilling storytelling with a bloodspattered cast of swashbuckling tyrants, nymphomaniacal empresses and visionary prophets. The book is unputdownable."
"The Times of London"
Praise for "Rubicon"
"Tom Holland has produced in one volume the crispest and most compelling account of this momentous period I have ever read."
"The Seattle Times"
Praise for "Persian Fire"
"Excellent... Holland is a cool-headed historian who writes no less authoritatively and engagingly on classical Greece than he did on ancient Rome in his last book, "Rubicon""
