Ancient Greek Scholarship Reviews

Ancient Greek Scholarship comprises both a finding aid (a through survey of the material, with explanations of the sources and their transmission, and guidance on editions and secondary literature) and a tutorial (an introduction to scholarly Greek, with an anthology of texts and a glossary of technical usages). Every research student should have this invaluable resource thrust upon them * Malcolm Heath, Greece and Rome *
A practical, down-to-earth approach to problems is the hallmark of Dickey's style, and a genuine love for Classics and its students permeates every page of this book. After reading it, I both feel more knowledgeable about ancient scholarship and glad that such an intricate subject could be presented in such an interesting way. The book is not just an indespensible tool: it is, above all, a great pleasure to read. I warmly recommend it to both students and experts. * Olga Tribulato, Journal of Hellenic Studies *
This book fills a deep need...grateful that a competent and knowledgable scholar has compiled such a useful guide to such an important yet intractable body of material. * Kathleen McNamee, The Classical Review *
Dickey has received much praise, from linguists as well as classicists, for her monographs on Greek and Latin forms of address. How she has published a handbook to ancient Greek scholarship, which manifests the erudition, precision, and uncommon good sense known to her earlier readers. * Malcom D. Hyman, Historiographica Linguistica 35:3 *
Dickey has truly done an excellent job * Malcom D. Hyman, Historiographica Linguistica 35:3 *
Dickey's book is carefully written, scrupulously edited, and well-produced * Malcom D. Hyman, Historiographica Linguistica 35:3 *
Any serious student of Greek will want to possess it. * William Slater, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
