Plutarch: The Malice of Herodotos

Edited and Translated by A. J. Bowen

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

The Malice of Herodotus can perhaps best be described as the world's earliest known book review. But it is much more than that, for in the course of 'correcting' with considerable vituperation what he saw as Herodotus' anti-Greek bias, Plutarch tells us much about his own attitude to writing history.
