Cicero, one of the greatest orators of all time and an important politician at the time of the downfall of the Roman Republic, has left in his writings a first-hand view of the age of Caesar and Pompey. However, readers need to learn how to interpret these writings and, as with any politician or orator, not to believe too easily what he says. This book is a guide to reading Cicero and a companion to anyone who is prepared to take the long but rewarding journey through his works. It is not in itself a biography, but may help readers to construct their own biographies of Cicero or histories of his age.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lintott...is impressively at home with the whole of Cicero's writing and has a sharp eye for some interesting and evocative passages. He is particularly good at unravelling the niceties of senatorial debate ... Cicero As Evidence offers important lessons for anyone working on the history and culture of the ancient world * Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement *
wide-ranging and illuminating ... All Roman historians will want to consult this book - frequently. * W. Jeffrey Tatum, Phoenix: Journal of the Classical Association of Canada *
a wonderful resource for the different periods of Cicero's life * Barbara Saylor Rodgers, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
