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 myths of the uprising of one generation against another; Augustus Conception of Himself, a detailed summary and interpretation of Augustus life and career; and The Declaration of War against Cleopatra, an investigation of the charge against Cleopatra that she betrayed her pledge to Rome as a client ruler. Taken together, these essays form a unified and coherent survey of ancient history that will appeal to a broad audience.
