History of Rome
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415149533, Hardcover)Mommsen's The History of Rome was a major influence on the concept of ancient history during the last half of the nineteenth century. His book was translated into every major language and gained favour with a huge international public. It has remained the most indispensable core work in the field of Roman studies, its lasting success lying in Mommsen's 'incomparable mastery of every aspect of civilization'.

This abridged edition makes the great German scholar's multi-volume work accessible to a larger audience. Rivaling Gibbon, Macaulay, and Burckhardt in its scope and power, it chronicles Roman society and government from the second century BC to the end of the Republic and rise of Julius Caesar - and helped earn Mommsen the 1902 Nobel Prize in Literature.
