Reviews

'For the third edition the authors have not only brought the bibliographical notes up to date but also made extensive amendments and additions, both small and large, throughout the text.'
James Diggle, Queens' College, Cambridge, The Classical Review
'This is a very fine book indeed. The text is written with admirable lucidity, wit and charm. The book itself is a clearly printed and stout paperback, well worth the reommended retail price of $44.95, and of course, as befits a volume produced by the Oxford University Press on this topic above all, the text is flawless. Clearly I would recommend Scribes and Scholars as a valuable acquisition for a school library which could be consulted with
profit by senior students ... this book, with its overwhelming proof of the centrality of Classics in the western tradition, is essential reading.'
M. Dyson, University of Queensland, Ancient History, 1992, No. 2
'This enlarged version remains a valuable resource for both graduate student and scholar. Scribes and Scholars is a book which has done much good and will continue to do so.'
E. Christian Kopff, University of Colorado, Classical Bulletin (1992)
'The third edition of this superb work has been carefully revised to reflect advances in classical scholarship since publication of the previous edition. The work is indispensable for classical students who have not read the previous edition, and recommended for those who want recent information on an essential subject.'
Gerald O'Sullivan, Stockton State College, Classical World
