    One thought on “Roman Empire”

    1. A very good history of the Roman Empire from founding to its demise in 476 CE It s difficult to adequately cover 13 centuries of history of the known Western world in one book, but this one does it in very digestible fashion It also has lots of pictures Typically a given subject area is covered in 2 pages of pictures and text, so it s easy to pick up for even a short reading opportunity It has 500 pages, so it covers many topics It is a very good choice as a first book on Roman history and civil [...]

    2. This is an encyclopedia about ancient Rome, divided into sections about history and culture Most topics are contained in 2 pages, sometimes 4, with 4 illustrations on the 2 pages The treatment of the emperors is mostly not chronological, but instead by character best, evil, saviors of the empire There s a lot about architecture, in Rome itself and in various cities around the empire The sections about the arts, science, religion, everyday life are also interesting This book is not necessarily to [...]

    3. Good topical introduction to the subject of Roman history You definitely would not want to rely on this book for the purposes of detailed research about Rome s incredibly diverse history However, if you are looking to introduce yourself to the topic of Roman history as a whole, this is a good stepping stone.

    4. Excellent overview of the Roman Empire, daily lives, military life, frontier life, economy, architecture, scandals, etc The architecture parts didnt appeal to my personal tastes but the rest is well written and a very good overview Just keep in mind its an overview, a very informative and accessible one, but just an overview.

    5. This is like an ecyclopedia with nearly 1000 color plates It covers a wide range of topics about the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, poltics, achitecture, and the arts but does not g int great depth on any topic Western civ and Latin teachers will appreciate this tome.

    6. A decent history of Rome, but I ve found other sources that were readable on the subject Still a good reference overall.

    7. Okay, So I m not into nonfiction so much, but this book was great I actually understood it, which is a first I Love Italy

    8. Interesting book that outlines the history and greatness of Rome A decent reference type book Nothing in depth.
