Editorial Reviews

`Heath's is not the first translation of On Issues into English ... but it will become the standard one. It reads well, and it looks good, with plenty of subheadings and paragraph-breaks to ease the strain on the reader ... To reflect on the difficulties of the technical terms is to appreciatethe scale of Heath's achievement. He is to be congratulated on a thoroughly worthy accomplishment. Teachers of ancient rhetoric will from now on have one excuse fewer for not including stasis-theory in their courses.'Ian Rutherford, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
