It looks behind the scenes of Imperial politics and sees the Roman world as it appeared to the silent majority of soldiers, peasants, slaves and landless peasants.Special attention is drawn to recent re-evaluations of economic and sociological developments in the late Republic and early Empire, and to the question of continuity or discontinuity, from antiquity to the medieval period.The text should serve as a useful and up-to-date introduction to the study of Roman history at university level.
