Titel: Literary Texts and the Roman Historian.
Routledge, London / New York, 1999. X,218p. Paperback. Series: Approaching the Ancient World. Nice copy. 'Congratulations to David Potter for a book that imparts important information while posing and thoughtfully considering questions critical for all those interested in using ancient literary texts for historical purposes. His work should benefit a broad range of readers, from neophytes to accomplished historians, in a variety of ways. All will learn or be reminded of the vast gulf that separates modern practitioners of history from their ancient counterparts, and, at the same time, of binding ties that transcend some 2000 years.'
