It is impossible, in a single volume, to include more than about half of the surviving text of Polybius. Our decision to translate all of the fully preserved books (1 to 5) was not difficult: these books show Polybius in full working mode as a historian, and to excerpt them could easily distort the reader’s impression of Polybius’ method. Then again, many would regard the two most famous parts of the Histories as what he says about the Roman system of government in Book 6 and about the writing of history in Book 12, and so these books were included in their fragmentary totality.
