"Spanning over 1,300 years, this popular history of Rome combines an overview of political events with a balanced analysis of social and economic change, and of religious and cultural life." "For the third edition, the book has been revised to incorporate a number of improvements: material on the formation of Rome has been updated to take account of the most recent research; coverage of Roman imperialism and the political world of the first century B.C. has been expanded; a new section on Roman spectacles, including gladiatorial combat and chariot racing has been inserted; and a survey of the sources for Roman history has been added." "The new edition retains an emphasis on the importance of interpreting the varied source material, especially the literary evidence."--BOOK JACKET.
