Chronological presentation of material features: the Villanovan and Etruscan Forerunners 1000-200 BC.; the Roman Republic 200-27 BC; Augustus and the Imperial Idea 27 BC-AD 14; The Julio-Claudians AD 14-68; The Flavians: Savior to Despot AD 69-98; Trajan, Optimus Princeps AD 98-117; Hadrian and the Classical Revival AD 117-138; The Antonines AD 138-198; The Severans AD 193-235; The Soldier Emperors AD 235-284 AD; The Tetrarchs AD 284-312; Constantine AD 307-337 and the Aftermath.

Product Description:

Roman Art - Romulus To Constantine

Review:

"There is no book, in my opinion, that competes with this one... This book is excellent in every way. The approach is sound, for the authors are leading experts... I would recommend it in glowing terms." ? Nancy T. De Grummond, Florida State University, Tallahassee

"Ramage and Ramage not only present the Roman world, but they show how Rome has influenced the modern world in many ways, and how the present is bound to the past... We have used no other text since Ramage and Ramage appeared." ? Carol C. Mattusch, George Mason University

"The clarity and the use of ample illustrations make this an excellent choice as a text for an undergraduate course on Roman Art." ? Mary Sturgeon, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"Each and every chapter flows beautifully... This text, Roman Art, would seem to be appropriate for multidisciplinary classes involving art majors (especially art history), classic culture, history, Latin, architecture, and classical archaeology." ? Robin M. Hicks, Ball State University
