From the Publisher:

This survey of Roman history -- from prehistoric Italy to the death of Justinian (565 A.D.) -- presents extensive coverage of social, political, economic, and cultural developments.

From the Back Cover:

The Fourth Edition of History of the Roman People builds upon the strengths of the previous editions to provide readers with a fascinating journey from prehistoric Italy and the origins of Rome to the final collapse of the Roman imperial order with the death of the Emperor Maurice (A.D. 602). Centered on a traditional political and military narrative core, this text also presents in-depth coverage of Rome's social, economic, and cultural life and, drawing on current scholarship, provides explanations of major trends and developments.

New to the Fourth Edition:
  • Expanded treatment of Early Rome's origins in the wider context of the Mediterranean World
  • Fuller coverage of Rome's involvement in the East from 133 B.C. to A.D. 96
  • Thoroughly revised chapters on the Julio-Claudian, Antonine, and Severan dynasties and the complexities of the third century A.D.
  • Additional maps and illustrations; updated bibliographies; more cross-references in the text
