E. G. Sihler, a scholar who published extensively on Caesar and Cicero, here uses his knowledge of those two authors to evaluate Guglielmo Ferrero's History of Rome from Sulla downward. The essay exposes the great difficulties involved in sorting truth from the surprisingly flawed sources for the history of the Late Republic and Early Empire. Classicists and Historians will find it a useful critique of Ferrero and an illuminating survey of the relevant source material.

Edited by Carol G. Thomas

Characteristic of the aims and goals of the Association of Ancient Historians, this volume focuses on the new and developing arenas of study of the Classical world. Included in this volume are informed considerations of recent work done in four major fields of Classics scholarship: Greece (beginning in the late Dark Ages), by Kurt A. Raaflaub, the Hellenistic Age (including Macedon), by Stanley M. Burstein, the Roman Republic, by Allen M. Ward, and the Roman Empire, by Ramsay MacMullen. Designed to give both the specialist and the novice in the field an overview of trends in present-day scholarship focused on the ancient world, each contributor is allowed his own voice and viewpoint.
