Review:

Designed as an introduction to Roman culture for the general reader, student, and non-specialist, McGeough's (archaeology & history, Lethbridge U., Canada) text discusses Roman civilization in terms of its location & environmental setting, historical setting, and its origins, growth, and decline. It addresses issues such as economics, social organization, politics, religion, intellectual accomplishments, and concludes with a look at major controversies and future directions in the study of Roman civilization.
