Book News
The range of contributors--historians, classicists, scholars of literature and religion, and others--reflects the degree to which the study of the Roman Empire has become interdisciplinary over the past decade. They cover literary and other sources, narrative histories from 44 BCE to 337 CE, administration, social and economic life, intellectual life, and religion. The essays are necessarily overviews, and parenthetical notes within the text refer to sources of more detailed information cited in the common bibliography.
