A companion to The Ancient Greeks, this book focuses on the principal Roman historical figures and their epochs--from Hannibal and Julius Caesar to Saint Augustine--and discusses the significance of the Roman people's development in Western history. It also covers the Greek and Etruscan heritage of the Romans; Roman art, architecture, and engineering; and the development of politics and law. The Ancient Romans incorporates readings and quotations from original sources, a brief bibliography, and a pronouncing glossary.
