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
