Editorial Reviews


“In all, Mehl’s Roman Historiography amounts to a helpful handbook for students of the ancient world.  It seems an especially good means for readers to gain a quick appraisal of the German approach to its subject.  Although some may criticize Mehl’s assessments and emphases on occasion, the book presents a concise and readable introduction to work of Roman historians, biographers, chronographers, antiquarians, and kindred authors.”  (New England Classical Journal, 1 May 2013)

Named CHOICE Outstanding Title for 2012

"Appropriate for advanced undergraduate students, this work provides a foundation for further study of classical historical writing. (Annotation ©2011 Book News Inc. Portland, OR)." (Book News, 1 August 2011)



“An extraordinarily broad and deep introduction, a treasure trove of insights and information that masterfully characterizes the nature and development (ranging over a millennium) of Rome’s historiography in its multiple aspects and functions, its originality and debt to others, achievements and shortcomings, and place between history and literature.”
Kurt A. Raaflaub, Brown University

“This is a thought-provoking journey through the writing of history in Roman antiquity. Andreas Mehl masterfully unravels the fabric of historical traditions from the Annales to Zosimus.”
Hans Beck, McGill University
