"Terrific . . . exactly the sort of collection we have long needed: one offering a wide range of texts, both literary and documentary, and that--with the inclusion of Sulpicia and Perpetua--allows students to hear the voices of actual women from the ancient world. The translations themselves are fluid; the inclusion of long extracts allows students to sink their teeth into material in ways not possible with traditional source books. The anonymous texts, inscriptions, and other non-literary material topically arranged in the 'Documentary' section will enable students to see how the documentary evidence supplements or undermines the views advanced in the literary texts. This is a book that should be of great use to anyone teaching a survey of the history of Ancient Rome or a Roman Civilization course. I look forward to teaching with this book which is, I think, the best source book I have seen for the way we teach these days." --David Potter, University of Michigan

About the Author:

R. Scott Smith is Associate Professor of Classics, University of New Hampshire.

Review:

"A useful cross-section of the literary and documentary evidence for ancient Roman history and society. An important new tool for teachers and students." --G. J. Oliver, Department of Classics, Brown University

Eager to be immersed in the richness, diversity, and raw energy of how ancient Romans lived and thought? This most readable anthology is a revealing, seductive page-turner, hard to put down once opened. --Richard J. Talbert, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill



An Impressive and well-chosen selection of key sources for the study of ancient Rome, rendered into lively and engaging English. Together they offer a panorama of republican and imperial life and letters. Highly recommended. --Nathan Rosenstein, The Ohio State University
