There's a lot more could be said about Rostovtzeff, even in encyclopaedia article. It's coming, just gimme some time. As for the definition of stub, I'm not sure. --Barbatus 03:48, 16 October 2005 (UTC)
Corrected Biblio to Bio, and corrected punctuation of journal article titles. I will do a search for his works to at least start the Bib ASAP, now I know it's needed.--Tygerbryght 08:28, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
You corrected what? This is a bibliography, that is, a list of books and articles. Major Rostovtzeff's works are listed in the article, but feel free to add any material about him you can find (preferrably in available publications). --Barbatus 15:13, 31 January 2006 (UTC)
Sorry, but a list of books by the subject of the article is bibliography. A list of books about the person is biography, or biography resource material. All of the books listed are by persons other than Rostovtzeff.
Ask any Engish major, or person who has either written or word-processed scholarly stuff. Once you've verified that, I'd appreciate your reverting the page. I won't work on a page where I have to argue about stuff where I know I'm right. If you need better proof, consult any manual of style. --Tygerbryght 20:40, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
Take a look at Margaret Mead. I would readily compromise on titling the section you(?) made References, rather than Biography, since it is not a narration, but a listing of sources. --Tygerbryght 21:21, 1 February 2006 (UTC)
Well, the only style guide I have here at hand is the 14th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Section 1.88 (p. 37), Bibliography or Reference List:
The form of a bibliography or list of references varies with the nature of the book, the inclination of the author, and often the guidance of the publisher. It may be a single listing of sources, arranged alphabetically by author. It may be broken into sections, by subject or by kinds of materials (primary and secondary sources, etc.). It may be a selected bibliography (preferable, as a rule, in a published book as opposed to a doctoral dissertation). [...]
So it is called Bibliography (or 'Reference List'), but not 'Biography.' If you insist on 'Reference List', or 'References', it's fine by me. Besides, these articles and books about Rostovtzeff are not necessarily biographical. --Barbatus 00:28, 2 February 2006 (UTC)
