Tacitus, the great Roman orator, politician, and historian, lived from about 55 to about 117AD. The 20th century has found his penetrating insights into the interrelationships of men and events to be rarely, if ever, surpassed. Tacitus' eulogistic biography of his father-in-law, Agricola, appeared early in 98. It is the fullest ancient account both of Rome's conquest of Britain and of the public career of a senator in the service of a Roman emperor. Tacitus' ethnological account of Germany is our most important source on the ancient land and its people and has had an enormous impact and influence on the history of Germany during the last five centuries. His "Dialogue on Orators", in the tradition of Cicero's rhetorical essays, offers a searching examination of the decline of oratory in Rome's early empire, These shorter works, written more than a century after the Roman Empire began, represent an important phase in Tacitus's development as Rome's foremost historian. In this new editon, eminent scholar and translator Herbert W. Benario has expanded his helpful notes and introductory essays and has wadded chapter summaries as an aid to readers. The result is a modern version of Tacitus' earliest historical works aimed at students of classical antiquity, British and German history, and the history of rhetoric.
