A long-neglected classic!

by DleRS on Sep 27, 2007

What to say? Rostovtzeff's history of Rome is a classic and should be read by anyone interesed in history in general and Rome's history in particular. It is certainly head and shoulders above many comparale books being ground out at present. The author was a great scholar, both an historian and an archaeologist. He ended his days as a professor at Yale, but today is nearly forgotten. His ever relevant works demand reprint. Unfortunately for English only readers, his Russian publications have never been translated. His observations on the hocus-pocus of Aryan Invasion Theory should find considerable interest among more skeptical researchers, but, alas, his relevant remarks in this vein are mostly in French or Russian. I envy anyone who had the good fortune to have been one of Rostovtzeff's students. He was -- is -- a great scholar. D. L. Smithers
