ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

This book is based on my 1993 Princeton doctoral dissertation, and my first thanks go to my supervisor Jim Luce and my readers Janet Martin and Tony Woodman for their contributions to that project. In particular, the ultimate credit for this book belongs to Jim Luce for the suggestion that rethinking Preface 10 in light of the exempla in Livy's narrative might prove profitable.

The book took on its current form in the 1996–7 academic year, during which my research benefited materially from Middlebury College's generous leave programme and the Faculty Professional Development Fund as well as from the hospitality of the Department of Greek and Latin at University College London. To the librarians and staff of the Joint Library of the Hellenic and Roman Societies I give my warmest and deepest thanks, for the questions they answered, the incomplete references they turned into books and articles, the space in which I worked, and above all their unfailing kindness and interest.

It is a pleasure to thank publicly the people whose efforts have made this book possible. Among many encouraging and supportive colleagues at Middlebury College, it was Eve Adler and Peggy Nelson who taught me how to combine research constructively with undergraduate teaching. Angelos Chaniotis, Andrew Feldherr, and Stephen Oakley shared their work in pre-publication form. Anne Alwis, Will Broadhead, Maria Broggiato, Kathryn Edmunds, Bella Sandwell, and Toma Tasovac retrieved and relayed information for me while the manuscript was in preparation. Michael Crawford read an early version of Chapter 6, and the Introduction received the thoughtful attention of Rolando Ferri, John Marincola, Robert Parker, Barbara Rodgers, Robert Rodgers, and most particularly Chris Pelling, whose comments substantially improved it. I thank Rolando Ferri and Robert Parker especially for
