46 editions published between 1914 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agricola by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

17 editions published between 1970 and 2006 in English and Latin and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first work of any great historian has always commanded attention, and Tacitus was ancient Rome's very greatest historian. His biography of his father-in-law, governor of Britain in the years AD 77-84, is a literary masterpiece: it combines penetrating political history with gripping military narrative and throughout poses the question (still very much alive today) of how one should live one's life under a tyranny. This is the first commentary in English on the Agricola for almost half a century: in keeping with the aims of the series, particular attention is paid to the understanding of Tacitus' Latin, but a whole range of generic, historical, textual and narrative topics is covered, and it will be suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as scholars. 'Tacitus Agricola' remains a key text for anyone with an interest in Roman Britain as well as ancient biography
