KIRKUS REVIEW

Chunks of works by pathbreaking historians are reproduced to trace the development of historiography. Volume I goes from Herodotus and Thucydides to the chroniclers of the late Middle Ages; Volume II includes Bodin, William Bradford, Voltaire, and Gibbon -- from the Renaissance through the Enlightenment. Editorial headnotes introduce each selection.
