Excerpt from Livy: Selections From The First Decade This edition - parva sed apta it is hoped - has taken its present form, as has the companion volume in this series by Professor Bechtel, from a conviction, based on class room experiments, that it is desirable for students to become acquainted with a wider range of selections from Livy than is represented in the stereotyped three book edition. Books I, XXI, XXII are themselves only selections, and they possess no special sanctity that should impose their less interesting chapters on a student to the exclusion of other matter which may afford greater variety of interest and better illustrate Livy's mastery of style and his versatility. In the selections offered there has been an aim to preserve the historian's method in well defined units, showing regal and republican administration, the manner of life, and especially through what sort of men the State extended its power as it expanded from a shepherd settlement into a power dominant throughout Italy.
