This is an excellent, brief introduction to the great Roman and Greek historians of the Hellenistic era. Duff summarizes the work and contribution of the greatest of the ancient historians, from Herodotus and Thucydides to Plutarch, and provides insightful analysis of their aims, accuracy as historians, and what sets them apart from other great writers of their age. A solid introduction for anyone interested in historical literary classics.
