"If you inquire into the origins of the novel long enough," writes James Tatum in the preface to this work, ". . . you will come to the fourth century before our era and Xenophon's Education of Cyrus, or the Cyropaedia." The Cyrus in question is Cyrus the Great, the founder of the Persian empire celebrated in the Book of Ezra as the liberator of Israel, and the Cyropaedia, written to instruct future rulers by his example, became not only an inspiration to poets and novelists but a profoundly influential political work. With Alexander as its earliest student, and Elizabeth I of England one of its later pupils, it was the founding text for the tradition of "mirrors for princes" in the West, including Machiavelli's Prince. Xenophon's masterpiece has been overlooked in recent years: Tatum's goal is to make it fully meaningful for the twentieth-century reader. To accomplish this aim, he uses reception study, philological and historical criticism, and an intertextual and structural analysis of the narrative. Engaging the fictional and the political in a single reading, he explains how the form of the work allowed Xenophon to transcend the limitations of historical writing, although in the end the historian's passion for truth forced him to subvert the work in a controversial epilogue. Originally published in 1989. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Xenophon the Athenian, who is well known both as a historian and as a witness of Socratic philosophy, developed his own systematic thought on moral education from a social and mainly political perspective in his extant works. His discourse on moral education represents the view of an unusual historical figure; an innovative thinker, as well as a man of action, a mercenary general and a world citizen in his age. As such, it is therefore different from the discourse of contemporary pure philoso...

"This study of an insufficiently appreciated classic brings out--as no earlier treatment known to me--the complex unity of the work. Nadon's many shrewd political observations and remarks, to which he is guided by the author's own indications, establish beyond question the subtlety and depth of Xenophon's political understanding. And the attention that Nadon pays to the transpolitical aspects of the work helps to introduce readers to the amazing resourcefulness of an author who, in versatility and gracefulness, was second to none of his great contemporaries."--Christopher Bruell, Professor of Political Science at Boston College, and author of On the Socratic Education: An Introduction to the Shorter Platonic Dialogues

The first book of its kind. Cyrus the Great (c. 559-530 BCE) founded the Achaemenid Dynasty, the first major world empire. Often known as the Persian Empire, it extended from Egypt to the Indus River. The empire at its height included Greece, Cyprus, Macedonia, Turkey, Armenia, Caucasia, Afghanistan, Central Asia, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Palestine, Israel and the Persian Gulf states. Greek and Roman historians wrote extensively about Cyrus. The most important texts about his life and times are by the Greek historian Herodotus (d. 430 or 420). Xenophon composed a book called Cyropaedia, or the Education of Cyrus. Xenophon's Cyropaedia was read extensively by politicians, soldiers, academics, and rulers for centuries. Xenophon shows Cyrus as a kind, righteous and tolerant monarch who tried to use persuasion when possible-rather than force-to expand his empire. This pictorial history aimed for young readers covers Cyrus' life, legacy, the formation of the Persian Empire and the legends about his life.
