Review quote

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 Praise for the second edition: "An easily approachable volume that leaves the reader with an understanding of the broader processes of Roman history and fulfils the authors' aim to engender interest in the wider Roman world ... the book will be a valuable resource for students of Roman history and in doing so offers plentiful ground for further reflection on the enthralling history of a small town which became the capital of the greatest and most enduring empire history has known." Bryn Mawr Classical Review
