Description

A companion to The Ancient Greeks, this text focuses on the principal Roman historical figures and their epochs--from Hannibal and Julius Caesar to Saint Augustine--and discusses the significance of the Roman people's development in Western history. The Greek and Etruscan heritage of the Romans, Roman art, architecture and engineering, and the development of politics and law are also discussed. The volume is also enhanced by readings and quotations from original sources, a brief bibliography, and a pronouncing glossary.
