Editorial Reviews


From reviews of A History of Private Life:

The new emphasis on the history of everybody has now been consecrated in [this] ambitious five-volume series...Copious illustrative materials--paintings, drawings, caricatures, and photographs, all cannily chosen and wittily captioned to display domestic life...Magnificent.

(Roger Shattuck New York Times Book Review)

From reviews of A History of Private Life:

This series has deservedly attracted huge praise from historians of all hues for its scholarly imagination and beautiful presentation.

(Andrew Freedman Financial Times)

Format: Paperback
The language in this book is translated very well and is easy to read. I looked everywhere for a book that described daily life in Ancient Rome without going into the girty details of war and politics. This book accomplished all that. I highly recommend "The Roman Empire".
