Statues were everywhere in the Roman world. They served as objects of cult, honors to emperors and noblemen, and memorials to the dead. Combining close attention to individual Roman texts and images with an unprecedented broad perspective on this remarkable phenomenon, Statues in Roman Society explains the impact that all kinds of statuary had on the ancient population.

Peter Stewart is Lecturer in Classical Art and its Heritage at the Courtauld Institute of Art, LondonReview:
"Stewart's study represents a novel continuation of the seminal work of Pual Zanker and other German scholars on the relationship between Roman art and significant social changeYet more than earlier works, Statues in Roman Society is necessarily and refreshingly interdisciplinary, drawing on fields beyond the traditional purview of the art historian, from literary analysis and philosophy to anthropology and social psychologyStewart has undoubtedly created an impetus for scholars of Roman art and society to consider Rome's 'other population' in entirely new ways."--Genevieve S. Gessert, CAA Reviews
