About the Author:

A. J. Woodman is Gildersleeve Professor of Classics at the University of Virginia. He has written widely on Roman history, especially Tacitus, and co-edited, with R. H. Martin, Annals III and IV (1996 and 1989 respectively).

Review:

'This is a work that should be read not only by professional ancient historians, but also by all students of the ancient world who want to understand the extent to which it can be reconstructed.' – Times Literary Supplement

'This important and pugnaciously challenging book [should be] necessary reading for all classicists and ancient historians.' – Classical Review

'Professor Woodman provides an extensive bibliography, and his book is readable, stimulating and thoroughly well-informed throughout. Students of historiography and others concerned with the way the ancient historians are interpreted would do well to peruse it.'The Greek Gazette

'This stimulating and original book is certain to produce strong reactions.' - Phoenix

'This is a very impressive work. Presentation is excellent. Woodman writes with great precision and incisiveness, as well as agreeable pugnacity....[T]his book is by a long way the best available treatment of this difficult topic.'History of the Human Sciences
