This volume provides three short works of Tacitus: Agricola--the fullest ancient account of Rome's conquest of Britain and of the public career of a senator in the service of a Roman emperor--Germany, a valuable source on the ancient land and its people, and Dialogue on Orators, an examination in the tradition of Cicero's rhetorical essays of the decline of oratory in Rome's early empire. Together, these works illuminate an important phase in Tacitus' development as Rome's foremost historian.
