Overview

Using the results of archaeological techniques, and examining methodological debates, Tim Cornell provides a lucid and authoritative account of the rise of Rome.

The Beginnings of Rome offers insight on major issues such as:

  • Rome’s relations with the Etruscans
  • the conflict between patricians and plebeians
  • the causes of Roman imperialism
