9780138965983: A History of the Roman People

This text is appropriate for a survey course on Roman History. Having undergone a thorough revision to incorporate the latest and most insightful research, this reader-friendly survey of Roman history embarks students on a fascinating journey from prehistoric Italy to the death of Maurice (602 A.D.)—it takes into account new archaeological evidence, advances in historical demography, and recently excavated and restudied artifacts to shed new light on our understanding of the origins and early development of Rome. Centered around a traditional political and military narrative, it presents in-depth coverage of Roman social, economic, and cross-cultural developments. Cross-references are made throughout. Supporting evidence and up-to-date explanations based on the evidence of current scholarship are emphasized.

From the Back Cover:

The Fourth Edition of History of the Roman People builds upon the strengths of the previous editions to provide readers with a fascinating journey from prehistoric Italy and the origins of Rome to the final collapse of the Roman imperial order with the death of the Emperor Maurice (A.D. 602). Centered on a traditional political and military narrative core, this text also presents in-depth coverage of Rome's social, economic, and cultural life and, drawing on current scholarship, provides explanations of major trends and developments.

New to the Fourth Edition:
  • Expanded treatment of Early Rome's origins in the wider context of the Mediterranean World
  • Fuller coverage of Rome's involvement in the East from 133 B.C. to A.D. 96
  • Thoroughly revised chapters on the Julio-Claudian, Antonine, and Severan dynasties and the complexities of the third century A.D.
  • Additional maps and illustrations; updated bibliographies; more cross-references in the text
