Item Description...
When originally published in 1987, this book was hailed as a landmark in the study of the Roman World. Now back in print with a new preface by the author, it is still the most comprehensive survey of the Roman World available. Ranging from the founding of Rome in the eighth century BC, and throughout the Empire and beyond this book will continue to be an essential resource on the subject for many years to come.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Solid and Exhaustive  Mar 9, 2005
This 2-volume text edited by John Wacher is one of the most respected texts on Roman history providing an extensive analysis of Roman civilization from the Early Republic to the Empire. Although the books can appeal to a general audience, they can also become rather technical as they are more oriented towards Masters and Doctoral students of classical studies. The books are also large, heavy, and quite expensive.

The two volumes cover in detail very specific subjects in addition to presenting general summaries. They are exhaustive in the range of subjects they cover and the research material they're based on. The books are also illustrated with countless maps, charts, and photographs. The books review Rome's evolution and support their summaries with extensive referrences to classical texts, archeological evidence, and numismatic evidence. The only draw back would be that it seems to give too little attention to Republican Rome and much more to Imperial Rome; about 1/4 of the text seems to involve the Roman Republic while 3/4 of it seems devoted to Imperial Rome.

Although the books focus more on the Empire than the Republic, I still recommend this work as one of the most exhaustive books providing an advanced and detailed overview of Roman civilization. My only caveat is that the books are expensive, long, and can become somewhat technical; the books may therefore be too much information to those who want only a very general introductory or illustrative text on Roman history. For such readers, I would recommend the Cambridge Illustrated History edition (not to be confused with the collossal Cambridge Ancient History volumes) and Lesley and Roy Adkins' 'Handbook to Life In Ancient Rome' as they may be a better choices in terms of size, more general summaries, and the $220 difference in price.
