Sir Ronald Syme (1903-89) is internationally known as one of the greatest Roman historians of this century. After his death, the massive manuscript for a practically complete, major work on ancient Turkey was discovered among his papers. Written during the war, while the author was himself in Turkey, it offers a fascinating insight into the development of a great historian, and is itself a masterly, original, and splendidly written study of the peoples and places of Asia Minor under Persian, Greek, and Roman rule.
