Themes in Roman Society and Culture

An Introduction to Ancient Rome

Second Edition

Edited by Matt Gibbs, Milorad Nikolic, and Pauline Ripat

  • Innovative thematic approach introduces students to Rome's vibrant social and cultural history while also challenging them to consider its complex relationships, dynamics, structures, and beliefs outside of a chronological timeline.
  • Written and edited by Canadian researchers and scholars, offering students a relevant assessment of current Roman scholarship.
  • Historical timelines at the beginning of select chapters ensure students have a grasp of Rome's chronological history before exploring topics thematically.
  • Distinctive coverage of non-traditional topics-such as gender and sexuality, technology, and economy-asks students to consider aspects of Roman history not typically covered in other textbooks.
  • Primary Source boxes provide excerpts of translated documents from the period, offering students an enriched perspective on a variety of topics.
  • Political History boxes outline political events and their effect on Roman society and culture in relation to chapter themes.
