The historians considered in this volume lived between the fifth century B.C. and the third century A.D.. They came from areas as far apart as Syria and Sicily and they had in common the Greek language and the Greek tradition of historical writing. They include authors who, though not strictly historians, shed important light on the tradition.ContentsPrefaceIn memoriam Adam and Anne Parry E. A. Havelock1. Learning through suffering?
