Summary
Roman Realities recalls the experiences of the ancient Romans through a thousand years of their history, emphasizing the problems produced by their successes and the lessons to be learned from their failures. It is based on the major primary sources of Roman history, with illuminating parallels between ancient and modern times. As Finley Hooper says in his introduction, "Anyone concerned about present problems will profit from reading about how the Romans went about solving theirs- with the added advantage of knowing how it all turned out." Although scholars will find the events narrated in this book familiar, they will not necessarily share its insights or agree with its interpretations. This is a book to read, enjoy- and argue about. -- Back cover
