DJ has minor edgewear. ; Luce Considers to what extent Livy may be said to have been in control of his historical material. What is the significance, the author asks, of the units by which Livy structured his history? How did he go about preparing himself to write, and what methods did he use in the course of actual composition? Did he have an interpretation of his own concerning the overall course of Roman History, and, if so, how did it affect his selection and arrangement of material? ; 322 pages
