Excerpt

This study is a revised version of a dissertation for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy submitted to the University of Cambridge in the year 1946. In the present version, besides some slight additions here and there, the section "What Libertas meant to Tacitus" has been added to chapter 5.

In its original form, this study was written at Cambridge under the supervision of Professor F. E. Adcock. Needless to say, I alone am to blame for all its shortcomings as well as for the opinions I venture to express in it. But the shortcomings would have been more serious, and the opinions more obscurely expressed, were it not for Professor Adcock's stimulating criticism and invaluable advice. Nor should I have been able to write in a borrowed language without his encouraging guidance. For all this I would offer him my sincere thanks.

I would also thank the British Council for scholarships which made my studies at Cambridge possible.
