This volume constitutes a work of fundamental importance for historians of the period. Part One analyzes the background, opinions, and historiography of each of the four writers, with particular emphasis on recovering from the fragments the original structure of their works. Part Two presents an annotated conspectus, based on close study of all relevant writings, ancient and modern. Reprint of the 1981 edition.

Review:

Anyone who has worked closely with these historians will recognize immediately that the great strength of Blockley's book is that it is based on a thorough understanding and independent evaluation of the sources of the fragments. This in turn inspires confidence in his handling of the fragments themselves and his judgement on matters both large and small. -- Phoenix 37 (1983) 175-8
