Product description

Review

The fourth edition of this highly successful text retains the virtues of its predecessors while judiciously revising, expanding, and updating the presentation of material. In its new form A History of Rome will continue to provide excellent support for courses in Roman history, culture, and society.
Richard Tarrant, Harvard University

The new edition of this comprehensive and widely–used history of ancient Rome improves an already valuable and authoritative textbook, augmenting the range of maps and illustrations, expanding the historical horizons with additional literary material and discussion of inscriptional evidence, and updating the notes on further reading. The combination of visual material and detailed narrative offers a vivid and multidimensional perspective on the most powerful and enduringly influential of ancient empires.
Alan Bowman, University of Oxford


Praise for the third edition:

"Edition 3 maintains a good balance betweena general survey and a deeper analysis of Roman history, combining a traditional biographical and factual approach with thematic discussions of socio–political developments and institutions. I highly recommend all the new materials for both personal research and classroom use."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"A History of Rome is a solid textbook. With a strong and topical vision of the city′s political, military and cultural history, the empire is brought firmly into the picture."
Antiquity

From the Back Cover

A History of Rome is a fascinating journey through 1,300 years of Roman history, from its mythic beginnings as a cluster of villages near the Tiber to its emergence as the center of one of the most powerful empires the world has ever known. This popular introductory text provides readers with a comprehensive overview of the key historic events, personalities, and powerful political, social, and economic forces that shaped Rome′s path to glory.

The fourth edition of A History of Rome has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the most recent scholarly research on literary sources and new interpretations of archaeological evidence. It includes expanded coverage of Roman imperialism during the early phases of the Empire, and more on the events of the late Republic period. A variety of enhancements and improvements to this edition include two color text, new pedagogical features, and more illustrations. Together, they serve to reinforce the book s stature as an indispensable resource on the history and enduring influence of one of the world′s greatest empires.
