Amazon. Xenophon's Prince: Republic and Empire in the Cyropaedia by Christopher Nadon (University of California Press blurb).

Reviewed by John Dillery, BMCR 2002.06.10. Faults Nadon for some mischaracterization of other scholar's arguments, but praises it's subtlety and focus on The Education of Cyrus as a "political treatise."

Review of Xenophon's Cyropaedia: Style, Genre and Literary Technique by Deborah Levine Gera, BMCR 94.01.10. Reviewed by Antony G. Keen. (The book is out of print.)
