Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Agricola, Tacitus's eulogistic description of his father-in-law, the governor of Roman Britain, contains the first detailed account of the British Isles. The Germania, an ethnographical account of the Germanic tribes, contrasts the primitive virtues of the Germans with the degeneracy of contemporary Rome.

Synopsis:

In "The Agricola" Tacitus provides both a portrait of Julius Agricola (the most famous govenor of Roman Britain) and the first detailed account of Britain. In "The Germania" he examines the life and customs of the war-like German tribes, often comparing them favourably with the decadence of Rome.

Synopsis:

Detailed historical accounts of the British Isles ("Agricola") and the virtues of the Germans ("Germania").
