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

This is the best one-volume anthology available of the writings of the great Roman historians—Caesar, Suetonius, Tacitus, Pliny, Sallust, Livy, and others-carefully selected and introduced by Ronald Mellor. For this new edition, he has expanded coverage to include
greater coverage of material on the late Republic and the Roman Empire.

Covers more than a thousand years of Roman history with extensive passages and 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 abridged or excerpted; Sallusts's Suctonius's and Augustus's are presented in their entirety. Mellor (Roman history, UCLA) provides short introductions situating the historians in the political and literary contexts of their time. Contains a bibliography for further reading. No index.
