Description

Tomlinson presents studies of selected ancient cities, ranging from the earliest development of urban architecture in Europe to the imperial cities of Rome and Constantinople. It gives an account of their architecture, not merely from the art historical point of view, but as an expression of the social organisation, and political systems employed by the people who lived in them.

Review quote

"What makes the work a valuable contribution is Tomlinson's complete command of a great mass of specialized archaeological reports. This enables him to give coherent interpretations of each city's role and development, and also--most unusual--to make illuminating comparisons. . . . The 13 maps and 74 illustrations supplement the text beautifully. Highly recommended."-"Choice "An enjoyable book for anyone interested in the urban character of the Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman worlds."-"Southwestern Journal of Theology
