From the Back Cover:

The Roman World offers students a chance to explore the life and culture of ancient Rome through original translations of key textual sources and in-depth examination of visual evidence. Covering such important topics as religion, warfare, family life, politics, the pax Romana, and the fall of the Empire, The Roman World is an indispensable resource for courses in both ancient history and the classics. With chapter introductions that help students situate the readings, and maps and discussion questions that help them think more deeply about connections and consequences, The Roman World encourages students to move beyond the simple what, when, and where inquiries of history and become true investigators into the complex fabric of a world whose legacy still endures.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The aim of this reader is to provide students of history and civilization with a balanced selection of texts illustrating the social, cultural, political, and military history of Rome from the time of the kings to late antiquity.

At times the richness of the material was overwhelming, but more often than not, the accidental survival of individual sources limited choice to a handful of texts. In selecting the documents I had the help of a large number of colleagues and friends who assisted at various stages in the preparation of the book. My thanks goes in particular to Steve Chrissanthos, Kate Porteus, Lee Reams, Chris Rasmussen, Brigette Russell, and Mehmet Yavuz, all of whom either read portions of the book, contributed suggestions or both. I am especially grateful to my son Garrett who read the entire manuscript with great care and offered many keen and helpful insights. Prentice Hall reviewers contributed numerous useful suggestions: John K. Evans, University of Minnesota; Valerie French, American University; Dave Hood, California State University, Long Beach; Fred Lauritsen, Eastern Washington University and Cheryl Riggs, California State University, San Bernadino. Finally, I would like to thank Charles Cavaliere, Executive Editor at Prentice Hall, who recommended the format for this book and helped it forward at every stage.

Unless otherwise noted the translations are my own.
