First published in 1927 this monumental book has long been out of print. Brilliantly written, it stands on its own merits and has not been outdated by new discoveries or research. Rostovtzeff's narrative begins in the fourth century B.C. and concludes with `the social and political catastrophe of the third century.' In between, he examines not only the political and military events of these centuries, but the social and economic milieu, the personalities, and the minutiae of day-to-day existence.For this edition, Elias J. Bickerman has prepared a completely new and up-to-date bibliography and contributed brief addenda dealing with recent discoveries and scholarship. The maps of Italy and the Empire have been entirely redrawn, and twenty-three of the most relevant plates from the original edition have been retained.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Remains a solid, reliable and stimulating introduction to Roman history for the intelligent student."--Paul B. Harvey, Jr., Pennsylvania State University "There are relatively few single-volume, comprehensive yet accessible histories of the Roman state from its pre-republican origins through the first years of imperial decline. Rostovtzeff provides one. The opening addenda informs students on how history is actually researched and written."--John David Christensen, Johnson State College
