From the Publisher"...Lancaster's arguments mark a more sophisticated approach to the study of Roman architecture than has hitherto been possible...Indeed, books like these move us from archaeological monographs on particular monuments...or broad general texts on Roman architecture...toward an in-depth understanding of what Roman concrete, marble-clad buildings were designed to do, of what they did, and of the way in which their successes and failures influenced generations of later architects."
-James E. Packer, Northwestern University, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"The book's clear prose style and the useful summaries at the end of each chapter make it very accessible to students, and it will be a very useful teaching tool' moreover, it is a surprisingly engrossing read."
-Ellen Swift, University of Kent, Canterbury
"This is one of the most important-and most readable-books on Roman Imperial construction, and by extension on Roman architecture, to have appeared in a long time. It should become a standard reference work in its field and be used and appreciated for decades[...]it is an essential and very welcome volume."
-James C. Anderson, Jr., The University of Georgia, American Journal of Archaeology
