The first book of Tacitus' Annals is concerned with the reign of Tiberius and with Roman campaigns in Germany. Norma Miller's useful edition, first published in the Methuen Classics series, remains one of the best approaches for students making their first acquaintance with the work of Tacitus. The generously full introduction has sections on the author and his work and the content of Book I; most useful for the tiro are the sections on Tacitus' individualities of style and of syntax. There is full annotation, aimed straightforwardly at basic comprehension of the text, and a vocabulary.
