Restless Youth in Ancient Rome presents an inclusive portrayal of the perceptions the Romans had of youth and of the role of this age group in a wide variety of domains - philosphy, literature, education, the law, the army, politics, leisure, amorous pursuits and family life. Emiel Eyben considers the involved farrago of thoughts, feelings and behaviour of youth throughout the period and shows how youth itself put its stamp on its environment.
