This is a fascinating source-book, a collection of inscriptions and writings intended to illustrate the breadth of social, political and economic history of the Roman Republic.

While full of lots of great sources the index at the back of the book is not overly easy to use. It can become time consuming to keep looking for a particular source while trying to move on with your essay.

This review is from: Ancient Rome: From the early Republic to the assassination of Julius Caesar (Routledge Sourcebooks for the Ancient World) (Paperback)
This is a fascinating source-book, a collection of inscriptions and writings intended to illustrate the breadth of social, political and economic history of the Roman Republic. The range of topics is amazing (from “the market price of a comedian” to “growing senatorial hostility towards Caesar”), the extracts are edited down to the very best lines, and there is illuminating commentaries throughout. Great to dip into. Anyone who bought “The Mammoth Book of How it Happened: Ancient Rome” (2003), a source-book aimed at the best-seller market, should throw it away and buy this book instead, the Mammoth book consists of lengthy extracts without comment or context, as dull as this is sparkling.

This review is from: Ancient Rome: From the early Republic to the assassination of Julius Caesar (Routledge Sourcebooks for the Ancient World) (Paperback)
Best source book for the period I've ever used. Found it absolutely brilliant. I hope these two authors produce similar for Greece and the Hellenic Kingdoms.
