Editorial Reviews

"This is a major work … that any library serving scholars inor relating to this field—and there will be many and widelydistributed among disciplines—will need to purchase ….It is logically planned and constructed." (ReferenceReviews, Issue 5 2008)

"Marincola personally speaks with authority on the entiretradition of ancient historiography, both Greek and Roman …and has collected a fine supporting cast of no fewer than 56scholars." (The Anglo-Hellenic Review, Autumn 2008)

“This new Companion gives a hearty boost to the ‘Weare winning!’ camp, in its sustained engagement with thisimportant issue … and also in its sheer energy and vivacity.One finds oneself with a veritable host of companions at one'selbow, each with a distinctive style and personality, and theproduct of various nationalities and scholarly traditions. Thejuxtaposition captures vividly the flavor of current scholarlydebate, particularly since the majority of contributors are centralfigures in their area of scholarship. The volume represents anexhilarating compendium of cutting-edge perspectives on a range ofthemes. This tremendously valuable two-tome assembly of a stellararray of scholars and scholarship-its whole indeed greater than thesum of its parts-is a credit to its editor and publisher, displaysthe vibrancy of the field, and will well serve scholars andstudents in years to come.” (New England ClassicalJournal, November 2008)
