Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book by the Professor Emeritus of Roman Imperial History at Lancaster University, is one of the very readable Lancaster pamphlets series produced by Routledge. These texts are all delivered in a style that conveys the relevant information in a concise yet informative manner ... Professor Shotter has laboured to produce an incredibly interesting and readable text which would be an asset to any history department ... I really enjoyed this book and found its style particularly engaging. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others'SATH, History Teaching Review
