Everything you need to understand or teach A History of My Times by Xenophon.
Xenophon has provided the world with a fine piece of literature that describes the conditions in which he lived. During the very first introductions of the survey of the region of the era, it becomes clear that Xenophon was less loyal to Athens than he was either to his personal interests or else he was loyal to other principles. There may be a system to his loyalty, which is more discernible to readers by the end.
However, from the incredibly brief explanation given in the beginning, Xenophon was banished from his home state of Athens, even though he had served as one of its military officers partly, perhaps because he spent many years living under Spartan protection. These two nations were not the best of allies during this time making such a 'state of affairs' immediately suspect. He lived the ending of his life in Corinth.
