The apology by Plato( file )
in English and held by 1,175 libraries worldwide
This historically renowned oration was presented by Socrates in his own defense after he had been formally accused of corrupting the youth of Athens. It is not an apology in the traditional sense of expressing remorse for one's actions; rather, Socrates' Apology (recorded by his faithful student and protege Plato) is a succinct and compelling defense of the brilliant philosopher's worldview, lifestyle, and teaching methods. A rewarding read for fans of philosophy and supporters of

XENOPHON (c.430-c. 354 B.C.) of Athens, son of Gryllos, and friend of Socrates was a wealthy gentleman of his day. He joined in an expedition including ten thousand other Greeks led by the Persian governor Cyrus deep into Asia Minor against the Persian king who defeated and killed Cyrus. It fell to Xenophon to lead the Greeks northward through danger and stress until they reached Scutari early in 400 B.C. Later he wrote the famous extant vivid account of this March Up-Country (Anabasis) in seven books, a true story of remarkable adventures and discipline; but meanwhile he entered service under the Spartans against the Persian king, married happily, and joined the staff of the Spartan king, Agesilaus. But Athens was at war with Sparta in 394 and exiled Xenophon for being pro-Sparta. The Spartans gave him an estate near Elis where he lived for years writing and hunting and educating his sons. Reconciled to Sparta, Athens restored Xenophon to honour but he preferred to retire in Corinth. His Memoirs of Socrates adds to Platos picture of Socrates from a different viewpoint. In the Apology of Socrates Xenophon supplements Platos similar work; and in Banquet presents an attractive counterpart to Platos. The charming Oeconomicus makes Socrates give advice on household management and married life of ordinary people. Hiero is a dialogue on government, Agesilaus praises that king; we also have Constitution of Lacedaemon (Sparta); Ways and Means on the finances of Athens; Manual for a Cavalry Commander; a good manual of Horsmanship; a lively Hunting with Hounds, mostly hare-hunting; a philosophical-historical romance Education of Cyrus (the Elder) on the ideal ruler and government; and the important Hellenica, (a history which purposely carries on Thucydides), 411-362 B.C. The Constitution of the Athenians, though obviously not by Xenophon, is an interesting important document on politics at Athens
The expedition of Cyrus by Xenophon( Computer File )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 905 libraries worldwide
"The Expedition of Cyrus tells the story of the march of the Ten Thousand. The exploits of this famous army of Greek mercenaries in modern-day Turkey, Syria, and Iraq were described by one of their leaders, the Athenian historian and philosopher Xenophon. They were recruited at the end of the fifth century BC by a young Persian prince, Cyrus, who rose in revolt against his brother, the king of Persia. After Cyrus' death, the army was left stranded in the desert of Mesopotamia, a thousand miles from home. Their long march, across mountains and plateaux to the sight of 'The sea! The sea!', and back to the fringes of the Greek world, is the most exciting adventure story to survive from the ancient world." "Xenophon's narrative offers a unique insight into the character of a Greek army struggling to survive in an alien world. It is also the most sustained eyewitness account of the landscape of the vast and wealthy Persian empire."--BOOK JACKET
