Product description


'Syme is masterful. His capacity to wring information about parentage, career, and office from the driest fragmentary inscription and marry it with other material is legendary.' The Times

'This is a book to incite wonder ... no general reader with the least enthusiasm for political history of any age could fail to find it compelling.' Times Literary Supplement

'This book belongs to the rarest of categories: books that one wishes were longer and whose end is approached with a grudging reluctance.' Sunday Telegraph

'Between the seemingly abrupt sentences runs a current of feeling generated by Syme's profound understanding of the ironies of political history.' Thomas D'Evelyn The Christian Science Monitor

About the Author

Ronald Syme is at Wolfson College, Oxford.
