Review:

"Brings to the attention of classicists basic demographic methods and applies them intelligently to the Roman material. There is no comparable book now available in Roman history. I expect that it will have a wide audience." -- Richard Saller, University of Chicago

Synopsis:

A focus on ancient Roman society. Part 1 discusses how ancient evidence cannot be used to provide reliable data on demographic issues; Part 2 presents an overview of modern demographic methods and models; Part 3 draws general conclusions about life in the Roman world, based on demographic analysis.
