Format: Paperback
"War and Society in the Roman World" edited by John Rich and Graham Shipley was published by Routledge in 1993 (hardcover) and in 1995 (paperback). Since 2002 it has been available as a download for Amazon Kindle. First a few words about the editors:

** John Rich was, at the time of publication, Senior Lecturer in Classics at the University of Nottingham. I can add the following information: he is the author of a chapter in Private and Public Lies: The Discourse of Despotism and Deceit in the Graeco-Roman World edited by A. J. Turner and others (2010). The title of his contribution (which is available online) is "Deception, Lies, and Economy with the Truth: Augustus and the Establishment of the Principate."

** Graham Shipley was, at the time of publication, Lecturer in Ancient History and Head of the Ancient History Division at the University of Leicester. I can add the following information: he is co-author and co-editor of The Cambridge Dictionary of Classical Civilization (2006, 2008)

This book and its companion volume - War and Society in the Greek World - are the product of seminars jointly organized by the Classics Departments of Leicester and Nottingham Universities. "War and Society in the Ancient World" was the theme of a series of seminars held in Leicester and Nottingham between 1988 and 1990. The two volumes contain substantially revised versions of a selection of papers from that series.

HASH(0x927af9d8) out of 5 stars Excellent collection of essays...Very informative! 5 Jun. 2003
By Tatiana Danger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As stated in the preface of War and Society in the Roman World, "`There is and has been a powerful reluctance among historians to discuss ancient warfare and its consequences with a steady eye'" (ix). What this book hopes to examine is the relationship between war and society. The focus is on how this relationship changes from the Roman conquest of Italy through the Republic, and consequently the Principate and the late Roman Empire. John Rich offers a brief historiography in his preface regarding discussions, lectures and literature on war and society in the ancient world. This book is very useful to the student of Roman studies for it examines different facets of Roman history from its earliest settlement times to the end of its Empire. While it is not a complete chronological history of the relationship between war and society in the Roman world, it is a well organized and well written collection of essays from very knowledgeable writers. In addition, there is extensive bibliographic information at the end of each essay which always helps aspiring Classics students better prepare their own scholarly studies.
