    Review quote
    'Cornell's is the most authoritative study of early Roman history to have been written by a single author since Beloch's Romanische Geschichte of 1926. The Beginnings of Rome is an authoritative, important, and timely book from which we are all benefiting, and from which much subsequent study of early Rome will start.' - The Classical Review
    Back cover copy
    The beginnings of Rome, once thought to be lost in the mists of legend, are now being revealed by an ever-increasing body of archaeological evidence, much of it unearthed during the past twenty-five years. This new material has made it possible to trace the development of Rome from an iron-age village to a major state which eventually outstripped its competitors and became a Mediterranean power. The study of this period raises acute questions of historical method, demanding analysis of many different kinds of archaeological evidence in conjunction with literary sources. Professor Cornell uses the results of up-to-date archaeological techniques and takes current methodological debates into account. The Beginnings of Rome offers new and often controversial answers to major questions such as Rome's relations with the Etruscans, the conflict between patricians and plebeians, the causes of Roman imperialism and the growth of a slave-based economy.
