Reviews

"The Romans provides an up to date introduction to all of Roman history, vividly illustrated from ancient texts and monuments. It is not just a history of Rome, but an instruction manual on how to do Roman history, packed with the latest research on the eternal city." - Greg Woolf, Director of the Institute for Classical Studies, UK"Splendidly informative and written in a captivating style, Romans provides a first-rate introduction to Roman history, Roman society, and the Roman world. As the title suggests, Romans never loses sight of the fact that it is people who make culture. The author not only illuminates her subject for the general reader, but is also alert to the challenge of interpreting ancient evidence, and in so doing does a service for the specialist. This book bridges the gap between "them" and "us" and offers a startlingly fresh vision of the ancient world. It also draws attention to ways in which Rome’s heritage is contested to this day. I know of no better way of discovering the Romans and their enduring place in the world than by reading and re-reading Romans." - Professor Robert Garland, Colgate University, USA
