About this title

Synopsis:

Arnaldo Momigliano was one of the foremost classical historiographers of the twentieth century. This collection of twenty-one carefully selected essays is remarkable both in the depth of its scholarship and the breadth of its subjects. Moving with ease across the centuries, Momigliano supplements powerful readings of writers in the Greek, Jewish, and Roman traditions, such as Tacitus and Polybius, with writings that focus on later historians, such as Vico and Croce. Charmingly written and concise, these pieces range from review essays reprinted from the New York Review of Books to treatises on the nature of historical scholarship. Essays in Ancient and Modern Historiography is a brilliant reminder of Momigliano’s profound knowledge of classical civilization and his gift for deftly handling prose.            With a new Foreword by Anthony Grafton, this volume is essential reading for any student of classics or historiography.

About the Author:

Arnaldo Momigliano (1908–87) was professor of ancient history at the University of London, professor at Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, and also the Alexander White Visiting Professor at the University of Chicago. He is the author of many books, including Essays on Ancient and Modern Judaism, also published by the University of Chicago Press.
