Volume IV:Fragments of Diodorus is a continuation of Volume III, which contained fragments of books XXVII XXXII and stopped in 145 BC. AD After the fall of Carthage and Corinth destroyed by the Romans, the simultaneous death of King Alexander I Balas of Syria and King of Egypt Ptolemy VI marked the last Hellenistic monarchies the beginning of a rapid decline and for the Romans, the beginning of social struggles and civil wars. In eight books, Diodorus had covered about 80 years, since the end of the History Library should be fixed on 61/60 av. AD The story had to be very detailed, each book covering ten years. The fragments preserved, of unequal length and unequal value (one can legitimately doubt the authenticity of some ...), give an idea of the synthetic work done by Diodorus that, while paying great attention to res Romanae, not lost not view the developments in Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt. It was necessary to give a new edition of these texts trying to find, book by book, the intentions of an author who, far from being a mere compiler, tried to give a personal interpretation of events belonging to what was for him the "contemporary" history. It is clear that for him Pompey the Great was the culmination point of the Universal History, and that he had adopted the view of the Romans more conservative, but without the one knows what the "boss" of this Greek Sicily installed in Rome

"Only one surviving source provides a continuous narrative of Greek history from Xerxes' invasion to the Wars of the Successors following the death of Alexander the Great - the Bibliotheke, or "Library," produced by Sicilian historian Diodorus Siculus (ca. 90-30 BCE). Yet generations of scholars have disdained Diodorus as a spectacularly unintelligent copyist who only reproduced, and often mangled, the works of earlier historians. Arguing for a thorough critical reappraisal of Diodorus as a minor but far from idiotic historian himself, Peter Green published Diodorus Siculus, Books 11-12.37.1, a fresh translation, with extensive commentary, of the portion of Diodorus's history dealing with the period 480-431 BCE, the so-called "Golden Age" of Athens." "This is the only recent modern English translation of the Bibliotheke in existence. In the present volume - the first of two covering Diodorus's text up to the death of Alexander - Green expands his translation of Diodorus up to Athens' defeat after the Peloponnesian War. In contrast to the full scholarly apparatus in his earlier volume (the translation of which is incorporated) the present volume's purpose is to give students, teachers, and general readers an accessible version of Diodorus's history. Its introduction and notes are especially designed for this audience and provide an up-to-date overview of fifth-century Greece during the years that saw the unparalleled flowering of drama, architecture, philosophy, historiography, and the visual arts for which Greece still remains famous."--Jacket
