Paul Houston, Managing Editor (i) of Sparta in Germany said:
"Sparta has mostly been represented by a few well known Authors who seem to share similar opinions about the city-state.
Sparta magazine breaks away from the mould in offering new and original thoughts and arguments to Spartan subject. Issue one saw a real breakthrough in its release and has proven to be a great all-round success. Issue two carries on with this original train of thought, providing exciting articles which are easy to read and also historically accurate, not an easy thing to accomplish.
Our aim is to bring Ancient Spartan and Greek history to a wider audience, and we seem to be heading in the right direction."
Robert Montgomerie, Managing Editor (ii) of Sparta in England said: "Sparta, its extraordinary constitution, its brutal regime, and its military renown have been of great interest in all ages, and no less so today. At Sparta magazine, now that we have got well and truly under way, we would particularly welcome comment and articles from any of our readers."
