Victor Davis Hanson

Victor Davis Hanson is one of the leading military historian, classicist, and strategists in the United States. He was educated at the University of California, Santa Cruz, the American School of Classical Studie, and received his Ph.D in Classics from Stanford University in Classics. He farmed full-time for five years before returning to academia part-time in 1984 to initiate a Classics program at California State University, Fresno.

He has written editorials and reviews for the New York Times, The New York Times Book Review, Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, American Heritage, Policy Review, The Wilson Quarterly, The Weekly Standard, The National Review, Country Living, The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mirror, City Journal, and Washington Times, and has been interviewed on numerous occasions on National Public Radio, and appeared with David Gergen on the Jim Lehr PBS Newshour, as well as on CSNBC, MSNBC and Fox Newshours. He is currently a weekly columnist for National Review Online, and a contributing editor to Arion, the Military History Quarterly, and City Journal.

He is also the author of some 150 articles, book reviews, and newspaper editorials on Greek, agrarian, and military history, and contemporary culture.

He has written or edited fifteen books, including Warfare and Agriculture in Classical Greece (1983, paperback ed. University of California Press 1998), The Western Way of War (Alfred Knopf 1989, seven book club, paperback, and foreign editions and translations, 2nd paperback ed. UC Press 2000), Hoplites. The Ancient Greek Battle Experience (Routledge 1991; paperback ed. 1992), The Other Greeks. The Family Farm and the Agrarian Roots of Western Civilization (The Free Press 1995, 2nd. paperback ed. UC Press 2000), Fields Without Dreams. Defending the Agrarian Idea (The Free Press 1996; paperback ed. Touchstone 1997), The Soul of Battle (a history book club, book-of-the-month selection; The Free Press 1999, paperback ed. Anchor/ Vintage 2000). His Fields Without Dreams was voted the 1996 best nonfiction book of the year by the Bay Area Book Reviewers Associations, and his Land Was Everything was a Pen semi-finalist in 2000.

He co-authored with John Heath Who Killed Homer? The Demise of Classical Education and the Recovery of Greek Wisdom (The Free Press 1998, paperback Encounter Press, 2000; Readers Subscription Book Club Selection), and, with Bruce Thornton, and John Heath, Bonfire of the Humanities, (ISI Books 2001).

His The Wars of the Ancient Greeks (Cassell 1999; paperback ed. 2001; History Book Club Selection) was the first volume to appear in John Keegan's edited multi-volume history of warfare. The Land Was Everything. Letters From an American Farmer (forward by Jane Smiley, Free Press 2000) appeared in spring 2000.

His Carnage and Culture. Landmark Battles in the Rise of Western Power appeared in late August (Doubleday 2001; History Book Club) and was on the New York Times Bestseller List. An Autumn of War, (Anchor 2002) came out in 2002, and its sequel about the current war against terror, Between War and Peace, will be published in early 2004 (Anchor). Ripples of Battle (Doubleday 2003) and Mexifornia. A State of Becoming (Encounter 2003) both appeared last fall.
