A superb, nuanced translation… It is not simply that McGing updates the translation to reflect contemporary idiom; he also breathes new life into Appian’s prose on almost every page… This exceptionally well executed Loeb is a welcome resource that will be deeply appreciated by all those interested in Appian and his remarkable Roman History as well as expand his appeal to a new generation of readers.—Alain M. Gowing, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

I have not read any fictions that have more dramatic tension, philosophy, or narrative curiosities than this history of Appian’s.Pennsylvania Literary Journal

Over the centuries, he shows, we have been moving toward greater equality. We asked him about his impassioned new book: why he wrote it, how it’s optimistic, and what we need to do to continue making progress on creating an equitable world.
