The Histories of Herodotus of Halicarnassus is considered the first work of history in Western literature. Written about 440 BC, the Histories tell the story of the war between the Persian Empire and the Greek city-states in the 5th century BC. Herodotus traveled extensively around the ancient world, conducting interviews and collecting stories for his book. The rise of the Persian Empire is chronicled, and the causes for the conflict with Greece. Herodotus treats the conflict as an ideological one, frequently contrasting the absolute power of the Persian king with the democratic government of the Greeks. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia.)

So much better if all were read by Graham Redman.

Loved Graham Redman's voice, it made Herodotus more interesting!

Some of these people should not be readers. Mispronouncing even the authors name, they slur words and have many more other mispronunciations. Graham is fantastic though.
