Ancient Rome: A Military and Political History by Christopher S. Mackay (2005)
  leese | Nov 23, 2009 |
This volume does not claim to be exhaustive but it concentrates on the political and military history of Rome. In this regard it should be considered in the same category as other general surveys of Rome and it does an admirable job. The text is clear enough but it is most likely a bit beyond the average undergraduate reader although assuredly this volume as a place in undergraduate libraries. There is a helpful resource for further reading at the end which refers to standard works covered in the various chapters.
