The present text is the first to be based upon the four important manuscript witnesses determined to be significant in published studies by Professor Jackson. The result is a text free of many unfounded readings accepted into earlier editions and an economical critical apparatus. Professor Dotys new idiomatic English translation accompanies the Greek text mirrors Xenophons unadorned style and is the first to make use of the new text.
