  • Rome at Warby Nathan Rosenstein

    The University of North Carolina Press 2005; US$ 29.99

    Historians have long asserted that during and after the Hannibalic War, the Roman Republic's need to conscript men for long-term military service helped bring about the demise of Italy's small farms and that the misery of impoverished citizens then became fuel for the social and political conflagrations of the late republic. Nathan Rosenstein challenges... more...

  • Commanders and Command in the Roman Republic and Early Empireby Fred K. Drogula

    In this work, Fred Drogula studies the development of Roman provincial command using the terms and concepts of the Romans themselves as reference points.

    The University of North Carolina Press 2007; US$ 29.99

    The division of the late Roman Empire into two theoretically cooperating parts by the brothers Valentinian and Valens in 364 deeply influenced many aspects of government in each of the divisions.

  • The Art of Forgettingby Harriet I. Flower

    The University of North Carolina Press 2011; US$ 29.99

Sanctions against memory could lead to the removal or mutilation of portraits and public inscriptions. Harriet Flower provides the first chronological overview of the development of this Roman practice--an instruction... more...

  • Daily Life in Ancient Romeby Brian K. Harvey

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2016; US$ 20.50

    "One really must admire Harvey?s achievement in this sourcebook. With just 350 passages (more than half of them consisting of Latin inscriptions, from all over Rome?s empire), Harvey manages to give his readers a real sense of Roman private values and behaviors. His translations of the original texts are superb?both accurate and elegant. And he contextualizes... more...

Benjamin Straumann first explores how a Roman concept... more...
