This work on Roman culture and civilization has been acknowledged as a masterpiece. Few books have so successfully conveyed the scope and sweep of a period and yet retained such a scrupulous concern for scholastic accuracy. The author measures the achievements of the Romans not so much by their military success and imperial expansion, but by their cultural and political contribution to the welfare of mankind.Illustrated with B&W photographs.
