In one convenient volume Albin Lesky has produced a History of Greek Literature which gives students the basics, academic researchers a first point of reference and those with a casual interest straight-forward yet detailed information on the literature of the Greeks. Albin Lesky describes knowledgeably the great works of Greek literature which have transcended their time – from the Homeric epic to the poetry and prose of the Imperial Age. As an extra support to academic research Lesky has supplied each chapter with a comprehensive bibliography thus providing an insight into areas of debate. This standard work of literary history has till today lost none of its significance or fascination.

Die gewaltigen Mauern des sagenhaften Mykene lassen uns auch heute noch staunen über jene längst vergangene Hochkultur, die am Anfang der Geschichte des frühen Griechenlands steht. Mit ihr beginnt auch diese sechsbändige Geschichte der Antike. Elke Stein-Hölkeskamp hat eine ebenso spannende wie informative Darstellung der griechischen Antike von dem Ende der mykenischen Welt über die Dunklen Jahrhunderte, die Entstehungszeit der Homerischen Epen Ilias und Odyssee bis zu den Reformen des Kleisthenes am Ende des 6. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. geschrieben. Sie skizziert die Ausbreitung der griechischen Kultur im Zuge der großen Kolonisation entlang der Küsten des Mittelmeers und des Schwarzen Meeres, beschreibt die Lebenswelt der Bauern und Aristokraten, erhellt die aufkommende Bürgerkultur in den Stadtstaaten und erläutert die Ursachen für inneradlige Konflikte in den Poleis, die nicht selten in die Entstehung einer Tyrannenherrschaft mündeten.

Mit dem vorliegenden Band widmet sich Dieter Flach dem Dialogus des Cornelius Tacitus. In einer ausfuehrlichen Einleitung ordnet der Herausgeber den Text in das Gesamtwerk seines Verfassers ein. Flach arbeitet das Anliegen des Tacitus heraus, das er mit seiner Schrift verfolgt, und die Rollen, die er den Teilnehmern des Streitgesprachs zuweist. In der Textausgabe vermeidet Flach alle tiefen und unnotigen Eingriffe in das Werk. Zahlebige Deutungsfehler werden berichtigt und behutsame Verbesserungen vorgeschlagen, die Flach im Fuanotenapparat und in knappen Zusatzen zu seiner Ubersetzung erlautert und begruendet. Nachvollziehbar klart er Streit- und Zweifelsfragen in der deutschen Wiedergabe des lateinischen Wortlauts.
