From the Publisher"A splendid volume."
— Journal of the Study of the Old Testament
Millar is the most significant writer in English on the history of the Roman Empire in his generation. His grasp of the literary and epigraphic sources is phenomenal, and the easy clarity of his style makes his immense erudition delightful to read.(John Richardson, University of Edinburgh)
This second volume in the three-volume series includes essays by Fergus Millar which explore the role of the emperor and the functions of the Roman Empire's treasury, courts, penal system, and equestrian civil service in the first three centuries A.D. Other essays deal with the Roman citizenry, paying particular attention to the cultural exchange between Rome and Greece.
