It is today widely accepted that we do not get the whole truth from any historian.Greek and Roman Historiansapplies this undoubted fact to ancient historians such as Herodotus, Tacitus and Thucydides. In this enlightening work, Michael Grant argues that misinformation, even deliberate disinformation, is abundant in their writings. Greek and Roman Historianssuggests new ways of reading and interpreting the ancient historians, in order to maximize their use as source material. Grant demonstrates that the evidence they provide can be augmented by the use of other sources, literary and non-literary alike. Michael Grant shows how we can find out something about the ancient world, even if it is not exactly what its historians intended us to know. He argues that their work remains our most important source of information, once we have discounted their sometimes inadequate regard for the truth.
