By going through a single example of a each kind of publication—a critical text of a literary work, a coin, an inscription, and a papyrus—it teaches the relevant conventions clearly, and Schaps explains why things are done this way. I am no more an expert on all branches of the field than Schaps claims to be, so when I say that I did not see distortions of particular fields or outdated bibliography, I have probably missed something somewhere.
But the quality seems high. There are a few places where I wish he had said more, and a few where he could have been briefer. In the section on critical editions, for example, I would have liked a discussion of the positive and negative apparatus, and the different kinds of information different editions provide, such as how to use an apparatus of parallels and testimonia when there is one.

Also, I would have liked some treatment of postmodernist editing: he states on p. The section on psychology is vague and unsatisfactory. Quibbles aside, though, this book does an impossible job very well. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

In this spirit he includes the occasional personal anecdote e. It is perhaps inevitable, however, that in a book like this one can find a few missed opportunities. Breadth of coverage is a predictable target, since in a book that aims at covering as many research avenues as possible, anybody could point to something that Schaps overlooks. A few images are scattered about to support various chapters mostly in the more technical areas like palaeography or epigraphy as well as art , but more would have been welcome.
The book is well-edited and bound. These quibbles should in no way detract readers from enjoying the book themselves or recommending it to their students. Schaps has written a remarkable book whose sum is actually greater than its individual parts—the greatest benefits here await those who read widely across multiple chapters and actively look for ways to integrate among the disciplines.
I do not think that it is necessary or desirable for classicists to entrench ourselves within the confines of our specialty, fearing to venture beyond them for fear of breaking the illusion of omniscience that we can project in the subjects we have studied closely.
