Children and Childhood in Roman Italy

Beryl Rawson

  • Advances the subject much further than it has ever gone before
  • Offers a comprehensive survey of the evidence
  • Illuminates the contemporary debate concerning the upbringing of children
  • Shows that the assumption of a simple linear development - from repression to permissiveness - over the last twenty centuries is unjustified
