This substantial Survey forms a companion to Latin Historians, by C.S. Kraus and A.J. Woodman (1997), and like the earlier volume it reflects changes in the way that scholars have been reading the ancient historians during the last thirty years. There are chapters on The Greeks and theirPast, Herodotus, Thucydides, Hellenistic Historians, and Polybius. John Marincola is a distinguished American scholar, author of Authority and Tradition in Ancient Historiography (1997) and of the revised edition of Herodotus' Histories for the Penguin Classics series (1996).
