Moral History from Herodotus to Diodorus Siculus

Lisa Irene Hau

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Lisa Irene Hau argues that a driving force among Greek historians was the desire to use the past to teach lessons about the present and for the future. She uncovers the moral messages of the ancient Greek writers of history and the techniques they used to bring them across.
