The Historians of Ancient Rome is the most comprehensive collection of ancient sources for Roman history available in a single English volume.After a general introduction on Roman historical writing, extensive passages from more than a dozen Greek and Roman historians and biographers trace the history of Rome over more than a thousand years: from the city’s foundation by Romulus in 753 B.C.E. (Livy) to Constantine’s edict of toleration for Christianity (313 C.E.)

Selections include many of the high points of Rome’s climb to world domination: the defeat of Hannibal; the conquest of Greece and the eastern Mediterranean; the defeat of the Catilinarian conspirators; Caesar’s conquest of Gaul; Antony and Cleopatra; the establishment of the Empire by Caesar Augustus; and the "Roman Peace" under Hadrian and long excepts from Tacitus record the horrors of the reigns of Tiberius and Nero.

The book is intended both for undergraduate courses in Roman history and for the general reader interested in approaching the Romans through the original historical sources.Hence, excerpts of Polybius, Livy, and Tacitus are extensive enough to be read with pleasure as an exciting narrative. Now in its third edition, changes to this thoroughly revised volume include a new timeline, translations of several key inscriptions such as the Twelve Tables, and additional readings. This is a book which no student of Roman history should be without.


Ronald Mellor is Distinguished Professor of History at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he has been teaching Greek and Roman History, western civilization, and ancient world history since 1976. He was for five years Chair of the UCLA History department.

Yahm
I'm a History major, and this is one of the best compilations of primary sources I've ever used. I bought this for a class on Ancient Rome, but I never resold it because it seemed like such a useful thing to keep around for grad school. It has all of the important Roman writers and historians that I can think of, and the book is formatted in a way that passages are easy to find. The English translation is well-done, and it isn't as much of a chore to read as earlier translations. Overall, this is a great book for anyone looking to read Roman writers.
