Review "This is a major work … that any library serving scholars in or relating to this field—and there will be many and widely distributed among disciplines—will need to purchase … .A Companion to Greek ... Textbook It is logically planned and constructed." (Reference Reviews, Issue 5 2008) "Marincola personally speaks with authority on the entire tradition of ancient historiography, both Greek and Roman … and has collected a fine supporting cast of no fewer than 56 scholars." (The Anglo-Hellenic Review, Autumn 2008) “This new Companion gives a hearty boost to the ‘We are winning!’ camp, in its sustained engagement with this important issue … and also in its sheer energy and vivacity. One finds oneself with a veritable host of companions at one's elbow, each with a distinctive style and personality, and the product of various nationalities and scholarly traditions. The juxtaposition captures vividly the flavor of current scholarly debate, particularly since the majority of contributors are central figures in their area of scholarship. The volume represents an exhilarating compendium of cutting-edge perspectives on a range of themes. This tremendously valuable two-tome assembly of a stellar array of scholars and scholarship-its whole indeed greater than the sum of its parts-is a credit to its editor and publisher, displays the vibrancy of the field, and will well serve scholars and students in years to come.” (New England Classical Journal, November 2008) "All that you ever needed to know about Greek and Roman historians and current academic study thereon." (Journal of Classics Teaching) “Major work on a major genre … with no rival in English (or any other language) … .An indispensable guide to the subject. Essential.” (Choice) “Thorough, vigorous and up-to-date treatment of the subject, it should find a place on the shelves of scholars and students of antiquity alike.” (Bryn Mawr Classical Review) Review "This is a major work … that any library serving scholars in or relating to this field—and there will be many and widely distributed among disciplines—will need to purchase … .It is logically planned and constructed."
