Gr 6 Up--Most of the material included here has been covered in Nardo's previous books for this series, The Roman Republic (1994) and The Roman Empire (1994). However, the author has fleshed out this entry with new anecdotes, including tales about Cleopatra VII and Mark Antony, and the prose is succinct without being dry. It includes lists of works consulted, a very decent index, and notes. Note: one of the black-and-white reproductions included here appeared in an earlier volume.
