Editorial Reviews


Renshaw's work presents the history of Rome and its people in an accessible, student-friendly package. The language, although by no means simplistic, never becomes too technical and English translations always accompany Latin terms. He intersperses into the main body of the text a generous number of maps and images. These enhance, rather than detract from, the narrative as all visual sources appear on the same page as their description. The book is particularly strong in its use of Roman-era art and artifacts, along with modern reconstructions and schematics to complement the author's description of spaces and places such as sports venues, baths, and the city of Pompeii... Both students and instructors will benefit from this text. Bryn Mawr Classical Review

More About the Author

James Renshaw studied Classics at Oxford University between 1993 and 1997. Upon leaving university, he felt that he hadn't had enough of the Greeks and Romans and so headed into teaching the subject, first of all at Sydney Grammar School, Australia, followed by a brief stint at Westminster Under School in London. In September 2001, he joined Colet Court (where he is Head of Classics) and its senior school, St Paul's (where he teaches in the department). He is also a marker of classical subjects for the OCR exam board. Having taught Classical Civilisation to GCSE, he felt that there was a great shortage of teaching resources and so has collaborated with both Bristol Classical Press and Oxford University Press to remedy this. He has richly enjoyed learning much more about the ancient world through writing these books, and hopes that he makes the civilisation interesting, entertaining and accessible for students and any other readers who want to learn about the Greeks and Romans. Away from writing, he loves travelling, not least in Italy with a gelato in hand. He is an avid cricket follower and loves Indian food, while his musical tastes range from Rachmaninov to Van Morrison.
