and...Sparta21 is where you may find some of them to review and order..... :wink:
(No, i am not affiliated to that site....I hadn't realised it was their bookstore :roll: )
I don't think these two are on Ioannis's list (apologies if they are)

Michael Lipka -
Xenophon's Spartan Constitution: Introduction. Text. Commentary
Has anyone read "Sparta and War" (international Sparta seminar) for 90 dollers canadian I sure hope it would be worth it.
That's a rather broad subject - if your interest is the Spartan Army/soldiers/Hoplite, then try the following:-
P. Connolly, "Greek Armies" (Oxford University Press) - a good beginners guide, as is the same authors "Greece and Rome at War" which is essentially an expanded compendium of this and his other works.

N.V.Sekunda " The Spartans"(Osprey Military) - good for photo's etc of original material. The illustrations and the author's opinions are a bit dubious - e.g. the bronze corselets at Thermopylae (IMHO)

J.F.Lazenby "The Spartan Army" Aris and Phillips ltd)- best book available on the subject, very readable, and backed by scholarly footnotes for those wishing to dig deeper - illustrations somewhat sparse though.

regards, Paullus Scipio/Paul McDonnell-Staff
Gee Ioannis, was that all you could find? Confusedhock: Confusedhock: Confusedhock: :lol: 8) A real eye opener, I hope I can find some of these to read one day!
