Summary For more than a thousand years Roman civilization held sway over the ancient world; because of this long dominion, Roman ideas about law and government and human values remain basic to our civilization today. Dr. Starr's engrossing narrative brings ancient Rome to life again in ways that the general reader, student, or traveler can easily respond to. The many maps, full-color illustrations, chronological charts, and drawings accompanying the text emphasize the singular qualities of Roman civilization.
