In "Roman Provincial Administration" Dr Richardson shows how the Roman empire was created and how the Romans set about governing the great areas which came under their control in the formative period of Rome's first acquisition of provinces after the First Punic War down to the beginning of the second century AD. The very existence of such an empi9re was Rome's greatest achievement. In tracing the changes in outlook of the men who governed Rome's provinces and in the institutions they used for the purpose - largely from the careers of Cicero and Verres, on the one hand, and of Agricola and Pliny on the other - the author sheds light not only on Rome and Roman civilization, but on the age-old question of the methods and justification of world power.

The popular "Inside the Ancient World" series presents selected aspects of the ancient world in such a way as to help students gain an understanding of the attitudes of the Greeks and Romans, and to allow them to form their own judgement on the issues raised. Designed to meet the increasing demand for material suitable for Classical Studies / Classical Civilization courses, it will be found particularly useful by candidates taking examination sin these subjects at sixteen plus. It is also intended as a helpful ancillary to the study of Greek and Latin in the sixth form and below. Much of the information is given by way of translated quotations from ancient authors. The books are illustrated throughout and diagrams and maps are linked closely to the text.
