A classic survey of history from the beginnings of mankind to the fall of the Roman Empire, Chester Starr's A History of the Ancient World makes the latest scholarship available to the general reader in a lively and accessible way. Reflecting five decades of teaching and research, and drawing on the most recent scholarship, the fourth edition of this widely read history provides the same broad coverage and absorbing literary style that distinguished previous editions. For the new edition, chapters on early man, a section on the revolt of Bar Kochba, and a chapter describing the end of the Roman Empire have been rewritten to incorporate the most recent scholarship, and bibliographies have been brought up to date throughout.
