About the Author

Christopher Tuplin is Professor of Ancient History at the University of Liverpool. His publications include The Failings of Empire; Achaemenid Studies; Science and Mathematics in Ancient Greek Culture (co-editor with T.E.Rihll), Pontus and the Outside World (editor); Xenophon and his World (editor), and numerous research papers, mostly on the history or historiography of Achaemenid Persia and Classical Greece.


The papers in Persian Responses are excellent examples of the new Persian historiography. They range widely over the whole field of Achaemenid studies and well illustrate the potential of the new critical approach to the sources characteristic of it to offer new insights into all aspects of Persian history. [...]... Persian Responses: Political and Cultural Interactions with(in) the Achaemenid Empire will interest all scholars interested in Achaemenid history.' -- Stanley M.
