Ancient Rome

 
9780070489363: Ancient Rome

A spelendid panorama of the Roman world, its history, culture and people. In its sheer scope, the Roman epoch is unsurpassed in history. What has endured to our own time is its great legacy to Western civilization, in law, language, architecture and the art of government, and of course the fascination of its story. Ancient Rome presents the history and heritage of that remarkable era. In this richly illustrated volume, the reader can enjoy an all-round introduction to the politics, people, culture and everyday life of the world ruled by Rome. Unlike most general histories of the subject, it enables the reader to know the Romans not only from reading about them, but by hearing directly from them in their own words, through the works of orators, philosophers, historians, poets, playwrights and satirists.
