Rome in the Ancient World : From Romulus to Justinian Hardback
How did the Romans go from a small tribe living on the banks of the Tiber to an imperial power that at its height encompassed some 64 million people across three continents? And how can we explain the decline and eventual collapse of this vast empire?
This authoritative, highly readable textbook offers a complete survey of the history of Rome from its origins, through the Republic and Empire, to the period of its decline and fall, ending with the emergence of Mohammed in the 6th century.
Written by a historian with an international reputation, the book incorporates the most recent scholarship and archaeological evidence.
It describes the key events in Roman history, and offers fascinating insights into Roman life and culture as they changed and developed over the centuries.
