Herodotus and History

Argues that ancient historian, Herodotus, wrote in a style which is completely opposite to contemporary journalistic styles.

As this review will demonstrate, Herodotus’ approach to the writing of history is absolutely antithetical to the journalistic style of modern times: instead of being concise, he is exhaustive; in place of a linear argument, Herodotus’ work is characterized by “circular” storytelling and digression.
