A Brief History of the Romans. This is a long and sprawling history of the Roman Republic and Empire. It covers essentially all features of Roman life for the standard measure of the classical period, and considers social, political, religious and literary features of the Graeco-Roman culture. There are a few significant shifts in tone and style from chapter to chapter, making it less than impossible to guess at which chapters were written by the same historians.

Reviews:
  • black coffe
Actually a decently well written history book that makes me want to read it. It's not at all dry like I would expect out of a school text book.
  • Wat!?
I used this book for my Roman Civilizations class. I didn't read the whole book, but what I did read was very well-explained and helpful for the content of the course.
  • Hadadel
Pictures when appropriate (yes, in color), not too many pop-out boxes with irrelevant information like other textbooks, follows the history chronologically more or less and is very clear in terms of content. I used this book to supplement the textbook I used for my Roman history class and this book has made understanding the history a lot clearer. It doesn't go too in-depth, unfortunately for those who are looking for more depth (it is called a brief history after all). But it covered the history well enough and was a good refresher to read before an exam.
  • DrayLOVE
was a good text book for my class on Roman history
  • lolike
This book made the class less painfull
  • Kagrel
the book came on time and was in a good condition. it had some highlighting and notes in it but that's always good for college students such as myself.
  • JUST DO IT
This was another school book of mine, I always order from amazon, only once have I been misguided by purchasing from here. Anyway the book was good, except the author repeatedly uses a transition word that sincerely irritated my life.
Very good condition
