What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Roman historians already keep Lintott's Imperium Romanum,Constitution of the Roman Republic, and Cicero asEvidence at their fingertips and assign them for their courses.Here is another in that tradition. Modestly styled an"ethnography," Romans in the Age of Augustus is in fact apolitical, social, and cultural history of Rome and Italy at thecrucial moment in their history, filled with living, breathingindividuals."
Greg Rowe, University of Victoria

"Lintott's admirably concise treatment is especially strong onthe Republican background of Augustus' rule and everyday aspects ofhis government."
Karl Galinsky, University of Texas at Austin
