9780415106184: Ancient Rome: City Planning and Administration

Rome was a huge city. Running it required not only public works and services but also specialised law. This innovative work traces the development of that law and system in the main areas of administration. The book incorporates and develops previous historical and topographical works by relating their findings to the Roman legal framework, building up a portrait of public administration, unusually comprehensive for the ancient world.

About the Author:

O. F. Robinson is Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Law, University of Glasgow. She is the co-author of European Legal History.

Review:

[Robinson] convincingly concludes that the policies of Roman local government aimed at maintaining social stability, and we finish the book with renewed awe for the thorough Roman practicality promoting this stability and Rome's other achievements.
The Classical Outlook

This extremely useful book appears to be equally well suited for the generalist reader with an appetite for concise information and as a textbook for courses concerned with Roman Administration. The text is easily readable and lavishly annotated, with indices and a handy fold-out map of Imperial Rome.
