Format: Paperback
This anthology of original sources contains excerpts both from classical historians (generally writing during the early Empire) and from letters, monuments, governmental decrees, laws and inscriptions.

This isn't an introduction to Roman Civilization: the editorial comments help set the context but you need to know the political history and the geography in broad outline already, or be learning it as you read this book.

The selections fill in the details, and give you some sense of how the Romans and their subject peoples of various periods throughout Rome's hundreds of years of history thought of themselves and their times, on matters of foreign and domestic policy, social order, religion, and Rome's place in the world.

Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful introduction to Roman history and a good read as well. I first read it for a class in college and then bought it again later because I wanted to revisit it... It is NOT usual for me to re-buy a textbook! If you are interested in the Republican era of Roman history, you will not find a better source for it.

This book puts life and context into the readings regarding ancient Roman civilisation, and is rare in that it illustrates the lives of women as well as other themes. A great source book.
