From the Back Cover 'A major accomplishment. Eckstein's merit is to have demonstrated that Polybius was fully aware of the moral component of historiography and was able to reconcile this with the purposes of a responsible and critical scholarly historian.'--Kurt Raaflaub, Director, Center for Hellenic Studies 'A major book on a major author, this fresh and stimulating interpretation represents a significant challenge to current specialist thinking. It forcefully raises the fundamental historiographic questions of praise and blame and the function of history.'--Philip A. Stadter, Falk Professor in The Humanities, University of North Carolina 'In Polybius's Histories, as Eckstein so adroitly shows, politicians see their predecessors, even in defeat or failure, praised when they act nobly and responsibly, thus finding by example a code of ethical behavior and moral duty that remains a guide to conduct even in changin circumstances.'--Richard Mitchell, author of Patricians and Plebians: The Origins of the Roman State
