about

In this probing study, Starr covers the whole sweep of imperial Roman history, analyzing the binding forces of government and the army as initiated by Augustus, the maturing of these forces under subsequent emperors, and the eventual collapse of this network in the western provinces. Notsimply a chronological summary, the book explores in piquant, telling detail the elements and institutions that shaped the empire's history.

Editorial Reviews

"I'm going to use Starr's book...as a synthesizing work to recap much of the course. Starr links literary and nonliterary sources, many avenues of approach, science and contemporary contexts. Above all, Starr makes an argument, in a series of stages, that is worth the students'attention."--James M. Heath, Bucknell University
