Athenian Generals: Military Authority in the Classical Period. Mnemosyne Supplements 182.
Leiden: Brill Academic Publishers, 1998.

"The result is a work of lasting value both for its acute analysis and for its presentation of a body of information that will serve other scholars' interests and purposes. It is thus a worthy addition to the researches of scholars such as W.K. Pritchett and M.H. Hansen, who have done so much to systematize the study of ancient Greek political and military practices."
