From reviews of the first edition: "The Historians of Ancient Rome will certainly and deservedly satisfy many, more, in fact, than any of its competitors." -- Bryn Mawr Classical Review Covering more than a thousand years of Roman history, The Historians of Ancient Rome is the most comprehensive single volume of ancient sources available in English for the study of Rome. Ronald Mellor has selected extensive passages as well as complete texts by ten Greek and Roman historians, from Livy's account of the city's foundation by Romulus to the great defeat at Adrianople of Ammianus Marcellinus. Major longer works are judiciously abridged or excerpted; Sallust's "The Catilinarian Conspiracy," Suetonius's Life of Julius Caesar, and Augustus's"Res Gestae" are presented in their entirety. This second edition has been expanded to include greater coverage of the late Republic and Roman Empire.

Review quote

"This book is probably the most comprehensive single volume of ancient sources available in English for the study of Rome, and provides an interesting cross section of Rome's ancient historians as well. This second edition includes greater coverage of the late Republic and Roman Empire.."-Brad Eden, University of Nevada, Las Vegas "The author writes a very good introduction, providing an understanding of how the Romans viewed not only their own history, but the history of the world.."-Brad Eden, University of Nevada, Las Vegas "This volume brings together almost 600 years of translated selections from some of Rome's greatest historians and is an essential addition for the study of the Roman empire as seen through the eyes of its own historians.."-Brad Eden, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
