Overview

Between Geography and History: Hellenistic Constructions of the Roman World by Katherine Clarke

The Roman empire radically affected geographical conceptions, evoking new ways of describing the earth and of constructing its history. This book explores the writings of three literary figures of the age—Polybius, Posidonius, and Strabo—and how they used and transformed pre-existing Greek traditions in order to describe the new world of Rome.
