    Posted: 20-Apr-2005 at 16:05
I'm doing an annotated bibliography for my HIS Western Civ class. My topic is the Punic Wars. I need an original print source. For example: A book by Aristotle is an original source on Aristotle, A newspaper article written during the U.S. Civil War is an original source on that time period.
Does anyone know of an original source I can use for the Punic Wars? Is there someone who wrote about the Punic Wars during that time period, if so, would you know the book?
Thanks

Well, there's Polybius, which was given to you.  You can take a look at Livy.  Livy wrote after the wars, Polybius wrote during the latter years of the wars.  Eh, Zonoras, although Byzantine, wrote about the wars, and is still pretty old to be considered a good source for primary material.  Appian wrote about the Punic Wars, but only fragments survive - you can find them on various websites if you search google.  Those are the only major ones I own, or remember.

I also need the following: one scholarly journal article, two magazines or other articles. I found some articles at my library using the EBSCO database search. Does anyone know of any scholarly journals and magazines that can be found online that pertain to (ancient) history, that have had an issue to do with the Punic Wars?

Thank you so much, James.

Thank you so much, James.


I can scan you in two articles if you wish.  They would be images, however. Although I guess you could print them out as images and read them like that.

Dux, that would be great! Would you at all be willing to also give me the necessary bibliograpy information for the articles?

If needed, my email: jamesucc@yahoo.com

Thank you so much for all the helpful replies.

For example:


ARTICLE FROM A SCHOLARLY JOURNAL:

Scotto, Peter. "Censorship, Reading, and Interpretation: a Case Study from the Soviet Union."
         PMLA
109 (January 1994) : 61-70.

ARTICLE FROM A MAGAZINE:

Hafner, Katie. "Making Sense of the Internet." Newsweek, 24 October 1994, 46-48.
