In less than fifty-three years, Rome subjected most of the known world to its rule. Tracing the rise of Rome from its origins as a cluster of villages to the foundation of the Empire and its consolidation in the first two centuries AD, this book reproduces the text of the acclaimed Oxford History of the Classical World: Rome in a standard paperback form.
Written by a team of specialist scholars, it includes chapters on social and political history, the Emperors, art and architecture, and the works of the leading Roman poets, historians, and philosophers. Retaining the original line drawings and maps, this edition contains a new eight-page plate section, specially selected by John Boardman.
