Strabo of Amasia offers an intellectual biography of Strabo, a Greek man of letters, set against the political and cultural background of Augustan Rome. It offers the first full-scale interpretation of the man and his life in English. It emphasises the place and importance of Strabo's Geography and of geography itself within these intellectual circles. It argues for a deeper understanding of the fusion of Greek and Roman elements in the culture of the Roman Empire. Though he wrote in Greek, Strabo must be regarded as an 'Augustan' writer like Virgil or Livy.

Dr. Daniela Dueck is an instructor in the departments of Classical Studies and history at Bar Ilan University, Israel. She studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where she researched and wrote her PhD dissertation on Strabo's Geography.Review:
'Dueck's book does Strabo a real service. Her vivid though delicate construction of Strabo the man ... presented with elegance and anthusiasm, must surely entice the reader of this book to pick up the text of Strabo again, or, even better, for the first time.' - Classical Review
