The volume presents a new text of Books 5 and 6, restoring the division between them which was proposed by Lipsius, as well as a full commentary on the text, covering textual, literary, linguistic and historical matters. An Appendix discusses 'The Tacitean Tiberius'. The volume rounds off the sequence which began with commentary on Books 1 and 2 of Tacitus' Annals by F.R.D. Goodyear (1972, 1981) and was continued by commentary on Book 3 by A.J. Woodman and R.H. Martin (1996).--Publisher description." ;
