"For students of Roman civilization, the third edition of Antony Kamm's Romans provides a concise introduction to the history, culture, and society of Ancient Rome. This latest edition does a fine job of capturing the current state of scholarship, especially as it relates to early Rome. Overall, the author is able to weave literary and material evidence with critical scholarship to present Roman history and society as it was and as the Romans themselves conceived of it. The author's casual style and the multiple comparisons with American history will make the material more accessible to undergraduates studying Rome for the first time. The expanded treatment of Roman women along with the new material on Christianity, Judaism, and late Antiquity will give the third edition even wider appeal."-Joseph A. DiLuzio, Baylor University, USA
