"Dillon and Garland's first edition has already proved itself indispensable for upper-level courses on the history of the Roman Republic. Now this thorough revision, with the scope expanded to include Augustus' rule, will serve as a more valuable resource than ever. I especially welcome the decision to trim editorial comment so that ancient voices in all their richness and variety can be heard more fully." - Richard Talbert, The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, USA
"A great boon is provided to students and teachers alike by this second incarnation of Dillon and Garland's Ancient Rome, which helpfully extends its coverage to take in the momentous half century of the triumvirate and principate of Augustus, a period that they illustrate with a selection of translated sources chosen with the same judicious care that they applied to the free Republic." - Benet Salway, University College London, UK
