Editorial Reviews

'his book does give us the first complete translation of the fragments of Books 1-2 into any modern language, accompanied by a commentary on a quite ample scale ... M. has thus done a great service, both to advanced scholars, for whom the commentary contains much valuable information on theintricate problems of the fragments, and to students with little or no Latin, to whom M.'s work will make the complete fragments accessible for the first time.'J.W. Rich, University of Nottingham, The Clasical Review, Vol. XLIII, No. 2, 1993
