Book Description Thames & Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Second edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. How did the Romans go from a small village on the banks of the Tiber to an imperial power that at its height encompassed some 64 million people across three continents? And how can we explain the decline and eventual collapse of this vast empire? This expanded new edition of David Potter's lively history tells the extraordinary story of Rome from its origins, through the Republic and Empire, to the period of its decline and fall.

The contributions of economics, archaeology, literary criticism, and anthropology to our understanding of the Roman world are explained. An array of illustrations enriches this insightful history, and illuminates how such objects can deepen our understanding of Roman culture. Seller Inventory # AA29780500251973
