During the past 20 years, the study of Sparta has intensified. Images prevalent earlier in the 20th century - of Spartans as hearty fellows or scarlet-cloaked automata - have been superseded by more complex scholarly reactions. As interest grows in the self-images projected by this most secretive of Greek cities, increased attention is focused on the way that individual Greek writers from other states reacted to information - or disinformation - about Sparta. The studies in this volume offer insights into the historian's traditional question: "What actually happened at Sparta?". But the implications of the work go far beyond Laconia. They concern the preoccupations of some of the most studied of Greek writers, and aim to promote an understanding of how Athenians defined the achievment, or failure, of their own city.
