Showing the similar struggles Herodotus in ancient Greece and Sima Qian in ancient China grappled with in preparing their historical accounts, Herodotus and Sima Qian: The First Great Historians of Greece and China demonstrates how their efforts helped to invent modern notions of history writing and the job of the historian. By comparing the writings of these two historical figures, who knew nothing about each other, the text illustrates the hallmarks of early history writing.
