Editorial Reviews


In sum, this volume comes highly recommended on account of the wide range of authors it considers; the variety of analytical methods it employs; and its nuanced understanding of the relationship between compilations of knowledge and their contexts. --BCMR

Book Description

The Roman Empire depended not just upon political, military or economic control, but also upon information management. Engaging with modern cultural theorists, this 2007 volume considers how the huge body of Roman technical literature debates relationships between the emperor and his subjects, and between imperial centre and periphery.
