1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 27, 2008
The idea behind a book like this is to acquaint students with historical documents, by giving translated excerpts. The latter are chosen to be succinct and somehow, given the vagaries of time and translation, convey the essentials of viewpoints centuries vanished.

Indeed, this seems quite successful. All the authors and excerpted works will be familiar to historians. So we have Marcus Aurelius and his Mediations. And Maimonides on Jewish learning. The selections are diverse across time, religion and subject matter.

The book takes the pragmatic view that most students, even of history, are unlikely to read the full works of these writers, even in translated form, let alone in the original languages. Thus the acquaintances brought about by this book may well be the only exposures many readers will ever get to these past luminaries.

A dissenting view about the book is based on the observation that it is the 7th edition. All the original authors have been dead for centuries. Their texts don't change. So why, in the space of a few recent years, have there been 7 editions of the book? Seems to me that the buyers [=current college students] suffer. They pay too much for a new edition when they could get older editions much cheaper and still learn the same material. The only beneficiaries are the author and publisher.

Am I too cynical ??
