The Edinburgh History of Ancient Rome

Series Editor(s): J. S. Richardson

The Edinburgh History of Ancient Rome is a chronological history of Rome and the Roman world in eight volumes. From the city's first settlement to the collapse of the western empire and the emergence of Byzantium some 1,500 years later, each volume encapsulates a sense of the ever-changing identity of Rome, providing overall unity to its dramatic history.

Praise for the series

'The intention of the series is to present for students and all who are interesting in the history of western civilisation the changing shape of the entity that was Rome. Upon the basis of the six which are reviewed here the series has achieved this goal admirably. The series comprises a number of features which will indeed be of value to students who are looking for discussion on specific periods, eras and topics from Roman history. Each books adopts a generally chronological treatment of its material (though including chapters which survey broader issues diachronically) and the discussion of the ancient sources is evident in each of the six reviewed here. The political and social structures that governed the Roman world are given particular attention in each volume, and this emerges strongly as a major theme throughout the series. The key wars, players and political upheavals of each era are discussed and a useful chronology and guide to further reading is included in each. Each volume includes one or more maps and illustrations… Each volume in the series provides an intelligent and highly readable account of the respective periods, skilfully pitched to their intended audience. Roman historians will, however, notice the numerous interpretative insights of each author and in this regard each volume is able to stand alone.'
