Few books have been as influential or acclaimed in introducing generations of college and university students to Roman history as has been the late Professor Arthur E.R. Boak's History of Rome to A.D. 565. This fifth edition was substantially revised by Professor William G. Sinnigen at Professor Boak's request as the latter found himself in a state of declining health. Although Prof. Sinnigen finished his revision after Prof. Boak's demise, this Fifth Edition retains the transparency and accessibility of the earlier editions, while taking full advantage of new discoveries and advances in Roman historiography.
