  • Résumé

In this accessible volume, Thomas Martin compares the writings of Herodotus in ancient Greece with those of Sima Qian in ancient China to demonstrate the hallmarks of early history writing. Martin shows the similar struggles that each grappled with and how their efforts helped invent modern notions of history writing and the job of the historian.
