A reader seeking information about Tacitus' monograph and guidance as to its importance in a variety of areas will receive good value from this book. Sane, learned, and well written, it will at once become an important entry in all bibliographies on the Germania. Gnomon Rives has given us a volume which will require the attention of all students of the Germania, both for his own views and his recapitulation of earlier scholarship. It is a rich feast. Gnomon Rives ducks no important and difficult point; his discussions are extensive and sane. Gnomon The reader who comes to study the monograph without much background will learn a great deal. Rives is particularly good on the ethnographic tradition of which Tacitus was a part and on anthropology. Gnomon Rives has done a masterful job ... handsomely produced, with attractive type and ample white space on the page. It will serve its varied readers well, both those who know no Latin and those who wish the text elucidated. Gnomon A scholarly, authoritative text ... a great resource. Phoenix Rives's edition will prove useful work to anyone interested in this fascinating ancient text, classicist or otherwise, and it will be a great help in raising the profile of this important text.
