Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- This expanded edition of a marvelous book is useful for research or browsing on the ancient Roman civilization. Not only have the authors covered the city of Rome itself, but they have touched upon the histories of Asia Minor, ancient Greece, the Middle East, and Europe as well. One of the key elements to the usefulness of this book is the presence of direct quotes from noted Roman speakers, writers, and philosophers which are effectively intermingled with description and history. The black-and-white photographs illustrate major events, important persons, and social life and customs of the people. A new chapter, ``Rome's Legacy,'' has been added. Appendices covering the Latin language, Roman numerals, as well as a date chart, study questions, and an appended bibliography lend further value to this expanded edition. A lively, highly readable, entertaining gold mine of information which should be on the ``required reading'' list of students of Latin and world history. --Gwen Salama, Hastings High School, Alief I.S.D., TX
