Beschreibung

This collection of essays by Meyer Reinhold will be the first volume published by Oxford University Press in conjunction with the American Philological Association. Professor Reinhold, a distinguished senior classicist, has produced a fascinating and accessible collection of essays devoted to the study of ancient history. Among the articles included are The Generation Gap, a major survey exploring the myths of the uprising of one generation against another and the effects of these myths on classical civilisation; Augustus' Conception of Himself, a detailed summary and interretation of Augustus' life and career; and The Declaration of War against Cleopatra, an article investigating the charge against Cleopatra that she betrayed her pledge to Rome as a client ruler by aiding Antony in a war against Italy. Taken together, the essays in Studies in Classical History and Society form a unified and coherent survey of ancient history that will appeal to a broad audience.
