    DescriptionWho's Who in the Roman World is a wide-ranging biographical survey of one of the greatest civilizations in history. Covering a period from the 5th century BC to AD 364, this is an authoritative and hugely enjoyable guide to an era which continues to fascinate today. The figures included come from all walks of Roman life and include some of history's most famous - not to mention infamous - figures as well as hitherto little-known, but no less fascinating, characters. These include : * the notorious emperors - Caligula; Nero; Elagabalus; Commodus * the great poets, philosophers and historians - Virgil; Tacitus; Seneca; Ovid * the brilliant politicians and soldiers - Hannibal; Scipio; Caesar; Mark Antony; Constantine * noteworthy citizens - Acte, mistress of Nero; Catiline, the revolutionary; Spartacus, champion of the slaves; Gaius Verres, the corrupt governor of Sicily. The inclusion of cross-referencing, a glossary of terms, select bibliographies, maps, genealogies and an author's preface complete what is at once a superb reference resource and an enormously entertaining read.

    Review quote
    'Even the briefest of initial glances at this work encourages one to go out and get the other two volumes immediately, just to have the full set. The layout is very clear, the information chosen is both enlightening and succinct.' - Eoin Patterson, JACT Review
