ABC-CLIO
A newly revised and expanded annotated bibliography of book-length reference works, covering the rise and fall of the Greek and Roman civilizations from the Bronze Age through the sixth century AD.
Jenkins offers a newly revised and expanded annotated bibliography of book-length reference works, covering the rise and fall of the Greek and Roman civilizations from the Bronze Age through the 6th century AD. While preference has been given to English-language works, many important titles in French, German, Italian, and Spanish have also been included. There is also increased coverage of ancient philosophy, religion (including early Christianity), and art and archaeology. Late Antiquity, a major growth area in classical studies, has also received more attention. Core resource for reference librarians, students, and classical scholars working outside their immediate areas of specialization.

There being plenty of fine introductory surveys of modern classical scholarship in general, Jenkins (classics and ancient history, U. of Dayton, Ohio) focuses on citing, describing, and evaluating bibliographical and information sources. He strives to include the best and most recent reference materials for studying Greek and Roman civilization from the Bronze Age through the sixth century AD. Among them are works on art and archaeology, history, language and literature, philosophy, the history of classical scholarship itself, and the later influence of the classics. He gives preference to English-language works, but also includes some in other major European languages. The first edition seems to have been published about 1993.
