Product description

Review

"The editor . . . deserves congratulations not simply for making these interesting works available but also for partly rectifying the incomplete state of the footnotes left behind by the author." -Phoenix, 2002

"Antony Birley and his Dusseldorf team have done a fine job in editing and presenting Syme''s manuscript - clearly a considerable responsibility ... This is a fascinating book, and can be highly recommended ... it deserves attention as an historiographical gem, of enormous interest and importance in helping us understand Syme''s development to become one of the greatest modern authorities on imperial Rome." -Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 00.06.14

"This is terrific. Syme wrote The Provincial at Rome when he was 31, with all the bravura of a brilliant young scholar confident of his powers and enjoying the opportunity to display them. Anthony Birley has done an excellent and appropriate editing job." -Professor T.P. Wiseman, University of Exeter--Professor T.P. Wiseman


"The editor ... deserves congratulations not simply for making these interesting works available but also for partly rectifying the incomplete state of the footnotes left behind by the author."--Phoenix


"Antony Birley and his Dusseldorf team have done a fine job in editing and presenting Syme's manuscript - clearly a considerable responsibility ... This is a fascinating book, and can be highly recommended - it deserves attention as an historiographical gem, of enormous interest and importance in helping us understand Syme's development to become one of the greatest modern authorities on imperial Rome."--Bryn Mawr, Classical Review


"Retrieval, reconstruction and publication of work long ago discarded by deceased scholars can be a matter for regret when better consigned to oblivion. Not so here. Many will enjoy the clear and taut arguments unencumbered by a mass of redundant annotation. Syme had a matchless talent for illuminating the nuances of Roman high society through close attention to origins, marriage, relationships and the working of patronage. Here it is deployed to illustrate the advance of new men under the Julio-Claudians, a theme to which he returned later more than once but perhaps never with the verve and brilliance of this inaugural essay."--JACT Bulletin
