Themes in Roman Society and Culture is a core contributed volume that provides a thematic introduction to fundamental aspects of Roman society-its composition, institutions, structures, and cultural products-with major focus on the period 200 BCE to 200 CE. This engaging introduction challenges students to consider Roman society as a complex web of social relationships, economic dynamics, legal structures, and religious beliefs, informed by the physical environment in which it developed rather than a series of chronological events. Each chapter is written by an active Canadian researcher and teacher in the field, which gives students a sense of the relevant evidence and an assessment of the current state of scholarship, preparing them to pursue more nuanced, thoughtful, and complex research into Roman life or history.
