About a quarter of the book is reserved for an extensive chronological table & a useful historical & biographical dictionary. The rest is a concentrated study of Roman manners, customs, laws at various stages of that civilizations development. The author shows Roman structures emerging step by step with Hellenism, then surpassing it with the political phenomenon that was the Republic, & finally the extensions of the Empire. The book inaugurates the projected series presenting general pictures of the great civilizations- its a notable first. With photographs. The style is hearty & the documentation is beefy.--KirkusPrefaceAuthors Acknowledgement & NoteThe Sources of the Illustrations1.
