By quantitative and thematic analysis of a carefully defined set of data this book examines Livy's caution toward the quasi-historical traditions of early Rome recorded in his first ten books, the limitations of his historical judgment, and how he tried to resolve conflicts in his sources. It also treats his religious outlook and his use of digressions and historical speeches.
