Edited by Catharine Edwards and Greg Woolf.  Published by Cambridge University Press 2004. 249 pages.


Fair to Good condition – we say this because although the book is actually good, nice and clean with no creases to the pages or cover, there is an ex-libris plate inside, and one or two annotations. These are as follows:

·         On the frontispiece there is a small list of headings

·         Here and there (though not everywhere) the previous owner decided to cross out the E for BCE (following a date, so that it reads BC instead) and occasionally has changed CE to AD.  It’s annoying, it doesn’t happen all the time,  but we wish to be fair.


It really is a fascinating book for anyone interested in how Rome affected and was in its turn affected by its empire.  Although it was the centre of the Empire, it was also a focus for some decidedly un-Roman activities.  A series of essays on different topics that will enlighten and astonish. It received an excellent review in the Bryn Mawr Classical Review which you can read here: http://bmcr.brynmawr.edu/2004/2004-08-09.html


Perhaps because this is an academic textbook, even the used prices for this seem to start at silly figures.  Not here.  We are offering it at a very fair price because we know that someone somewhere will really love and cherish this.
