Roman Civilization: The Empire
Naphtali Lewis, Meyer Reinhold
Columbia University Press, 1951
Naphtali Lewis and Meyer Reinhold's Roman Civilization is a classic. These volumes consist of selected primary documents from ancient Rome, covering a range of over 1,000 years of Roman culture, from the foundation of the city to its sacking by the Goths. The selections cover a broad spectrum of Roman civilization, including literature, philosophy, religion, education, politics, military affairs, and economics. These English translations of literary, inscriptional, and papyrological sources, many of which are available nowhere else, create a mosaic of the brilliance, the beauty, and the power of Rome. -- Text refers to later edition.
