Soldiers & Ghosts

A History of Battle in Classical Antiquity
( Yale, August, 2006 )

Sparta, Macedonia, and Rome--how did these nations come to dominate the ancient world? Lendon shows readers that the most successful armies were those that made the most effective use of cultural tradition.

Empire of Honour

The Art of Government in the Roman World
( Oxford, January, 2002 )

Jon Lendon offers a bold new analysis of how Roman government worked in the first four centuries AD. He contends that a despotism rooted in force and fear enjoyed widespread support among the ruling classes of the provinces on the basis of an aristocratic culture of honor shared by rulers and ruled.
