Studies in Classical History and Society
Reviews and Awards
"Specialists in each area will wish to consult the papers, but the main interest of the volume lies in what it tells about the author, a scholar of the older school, and a man of letters, such as should be cherished."--Greece and Rome
"The collection provides an exemplum to our profession, and especially to younger classicists, that we must continue to take up big, general topics which are vital and can be taken back to our courses for general learners. There is a great deal of sophisticated work being done these days, but it is often highly compartmentalized and a certain aridity tends to go with the discourse. We need to remind people that there are wider horizons."--Karl Galinsky, University of Texas at Austin.
"Meyer Reinhold has been an important figure in ancient history since his still-standard biography of Marcus Agrippa was published in 1935. Collections of reprints often suffer from the obsolescence factor, but the eight essays in this volume remain timely and useful. It is all too rare these days to see such comprehensive articles covering topics of general interest across so wide a range of Greek and Roman history and historiography. This volume is a model of accuracy and clarity for the historian of the ancient world."--Ward W. Briggs, Jr., University of South Carolina
