Book - 2005
Rate this:
Large colour illustrations, of Roman works of art, objects and statues and more recent painted visualisations of ancient Rome, big font, extracts from ancient histories and letters, short biographies, chronologies, maps and panels providing extra background, characterise this general introduction to Rome. Beginning with the myths surrounding Rome's origins, McCarty examines the might of Caesar and Augustus, civil war, the Roman way of life, slavery, the legions and Rome's legacy. Although this is a general guide, it is more expert than many, with a very readable and polished narrative that presents insights into the Roman world.
