Cohen, Robert


COHEN, ROBERT (1889–1939), French historian of ancient Greece. He served in the French Army in World War i, was seriously wounded, and was decorated for bravery. Cohen taught at the Lycée Henri iv in Paris. He collaborated with his former teacher, Gustave Glotz, and Pierre Roussel on the four volumes of the Histoire générale dealing with Greece (Histoire grecque, 1926–38). Other works include La Grèce et l'hellénisation du monde antique (1934) and Athènes, une démocratie de sa naissance à sa mort (1936). Cohen's work is distinguished by an appreciation of the importance of ancillary disciplines and exhaustive bibliographies to historical studies.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
