The Roman World 44 BC-AD 180 explores the central period of the Roman empire from Julius Caesar to Marcus Aurelius. Goodman examines the Roman world from an unusual and illuminating angle, focusing on the perspective of its subject peoples and its fringe
areas, rather than from the Emperor's household, thereby giving a balanced view of the Roman world in its entirety. Goodman outlines and discusses the major aspects of Roman rule and culture, as well as the marginal; the city state of Rome, politics, social and civic life and religion.
The Roman World 44 BC-AD 180 offers a stimulating and sometimes provocative addition to the study of the Roman world in this period, which will be of vital interest to anyone concerned with the origins of Western civilization.
