"This is a first-class collection of primary sources that provides biographical summaries of what is known about the lives of these two very significant ancient historians, places their lives in the appropriate context, outlines the historiographical significance of The Histories and the Shiji, and offers an insightful analysis of the methodologies and intentions of the two."
