Editorial Reviews


“Shelton's book is the first to explore a range of women in the work of one author. From Pliny's epistles we gain insight into Roman households and family life, and women's involvement in court cases, property ownership, religion, social networks, and politics… Scholars interested in these roles [of women] in Roman society will want to consider Pliny's information, and Shelton's analysis of his presentation. The clear writing style, generous explanations, and translated Latin make the book student-friendly.” - Molly M. Pryzwansky, Duke University and North Carolina State University

"By bringing all this information together, Shelton and the series editors Ronnie Ancona and Sarah Pomeroy have done a great service to the profession. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - A. M. Keith, University of Toronto, CHOICE
