"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 from the rest if students are to gain a thorough understanding of the Roman world."---William J. O'Neal, University of Toledo

"William Dunstan's texts are always a pleasure to read. His Ancient Rome is equally enjoyable. The book unfolds as a delightful interplay between topics required in a text and the human elements that make history fun to explore." ---Richard Cusimano, University of Louisiana at Lafayette

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 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.
