Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
From reviews of the first edition: "The Historians of Ancient Rome will certainly and deservedly satisfy many, more, in fact, than any of its competitors."
-- Bryn Mawr Classical Review
Covering more than a thousand years of Roman history, The Historians of Ancient Rome is the most comprehensive single volume of ancient sources available in English for the study of Rome. Ronald Mellor has selected extensive passages as well as complete texts by ten Greek and Roman historians, from Livy's account of the city's foundation by Romulus to the great defeat at Adrianople of Ammianus Marcellinus. Major longer works are judiciously abridged or excerpted; Sallust's "The Catilinarian Conspiracy," Suetonius's Life of Julius Caesar, and Augustus's"Res Gestae" are presented in their entirety. This second edition has been expanded to include greater coverage of the late Republic and Roman Empire.
