Paul Cartledge, professor of Greek history at the University of Cambridge, is the author of Alexander the Great, The Spartans, and The Greeks: Crucible of Civilization.
"Cartledge displays a marvelous ability to make the readers care about the Laconic warriors . . . and the society that shaped them." --USA Today "Cartledge brings [the Spartans] to life again with verve [and] style." --Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel "The history and atmosphere of Sparta are well conveyed by Cartledge." --The New York Review of Books "A fine overview of the rise and fall of a singular culture, spiced with anecdotes, quotations, brisk summary, and real insight." --Seattle Times "The Spartans presented in this book could change the popular image of ancient history, making it more compelling and accessible." --The Times Literary Supplement
