Editorial Reviews

Review

"Well written without prejudice or polemics. The explanations of complicated subjects are succinct and without jargon... Will work well as a beginning text to introduce students to the civilizations of the Ancient Near East, Greece and Rome... Also a good text for classes exploring this world from the starting point of the ancient city." - William Biers, Professor Emeritus, Department of Art History and Archaeology, University of Missouri-Columbia.

Format: Paperback
This is a nice general survey of urban settings in the ancient world. Would be fine for a undergraduate and graduate text book on architectural history, urbanism and aspects relating to the ancient world.

Love this book! I bought it for a graduate level Mapping Ancient Cities course. It is a great source for an overall view of Greek and Roman city planning. Good bibliography and nice comparisons between city plans and housing trends.
