The ancient Greek achievement in the writing of history set the standard for all time. The nature of that achievement, though, looks increasingly problematic in the light of recent work on such topics as literacy, orality, rhetoric, narrative technique, and the invention of tradition. In this book, eight ancient historians consider both the achievement and the problems involved in the study of the Greek historians. These essays reflect the best and most recent scholarship on the subject.
