Roman Art - Romulus To ConstantineReview:
"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
