9780415117739: The Roman Historians

The Romans' devotion to their past pervades almost every aspect of their culture. But the clearest image of how the Romans wished to interpret their past is found in their historical writings. This book examines in detail the major Roman historians:
* Sallust
* Livy
* Tacitus
* Ammianus
as well as the biographies written by:
* Nepos
* Tacitus
* Suetonius
* the Augustan History
* the autobiographies of Julius Caesar and the Emperor Augustus.

Ronald Mellor demonstrates that Roman historical writing was regarded by its authors as a literary not a scholarly exercise, and how it must be evaluated in that context. He shows that history writing reflected the political structures of ancient Rome under the different regimes.

About the Author:

Ronald Mellor is Professor of History at U.C.L.A. He is the author of Tacitus (1993) and Historians of Ancient Rome: An Anthology (1997).

Review:

"Mellor has a comprehensive view of Roman historiography and has included nearly all of the Roman historians... and all the major genres that treat the Roman past. He is, moreover, consistently sympathetic to his subject and tries to treat the Roman historians on their own terms. --John Marincola, "Phoenix."
"Mellor's qualifications are impeccable and very few scholars could have produced such an accessible and informative introduction to Roman historiography."
-Religious Studies Review
"excelent textbook, attractively written."
-"AJP
"Sometime in my scholarly career, I hope to write a book as helpful as Professor Mellor's study of the Roman historians Sallust, Livy, Tacitus, Suetonius, and Ammianus Marcellinus.."
