Ancient Rome masterfully synthesizes the vast period from the origins of Rome to the end of antiquity, seamlessly weaving a panoramic view of how the Romans gradually imposed their rule from Britain to Arabia. William E. Dunstan's compelling narrative balances political and cultural developments, as readers gain fascinating insights about daily life in the Roman world, ranging from the gossip people exchanged to their favorite authors, their passionate religious beliefs, and their clamor for bloodletting in the Colosseum. All readers interested in the classical world will find this a fascinating and compelling history.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Will Dunstan's texts are always a pleasure to read and his Ancient Rome is enjoyable as well. The book is a delightful balance between the coverage of topics required of a text and the human elements of history included in the narrative that make history fun to explore. -- Richard Cusimano, University of Louisiana at Lafayette
An excellent text: thorough and readable, balanced and inclusive. The strength of the book lies in Professor Dunstan's adept mingling of political and military history with cultural, social, and literary histories of Rome. An undergraduate text cannot divorce one for the rest if students are to gain a through understanding of the Roman world. -- William J. O'Neal, University of Toledo
