Very detailed book complete with pictures. I enjoyed this book as I am taking a trip to Rome and have used it to learn more about the history and architecture of the city. I am an avid reader and don't typically require pictures, but in this case they really accentuate the text and serve as a visual aid. This would make a good coffee table book even. My boyfriend doesn't read novels but he really enjoyed this as well. I recommend for anyone who is looking to experience Rome or just learn more about it's rich history.

An encyclopedia in a single book, Ancient Rome covers all the bases of Roman history, making it the ideal first book for anyone interested in the Roman Empire. Whether a child with a voracious appetite for "all things Roman", or an adult interested in binge-boning up on Roman history, this book is a perfect start. It has over 1,000 beautiful color photographs of archaeological artifacts and historically-accurate reproductions. It has topics covering lots of territory. For example, its chapter on Housing covers housing for the rich, the first apartments, villas outside Rome, emporer's palaces, and British villas. Whew!

The book's only limitation is that its two-page-per-topic format only goes so deep. Consequently, if you want to go deep you'll need other books. But of course, that's always the case! Two thumbs up.

Truly an encyclopedia spanning the Golden Age of Rome. There is more here than you may want, so it makes a great reference on a per subject basis. For a true understanding of what life was like in Rome, there is no substitute for Anthony Everitt's works on Augustus and Cicero, but for an encyclopedia, it doesn't get better than this.

This is a highly informative book complete with time lines and chronologies. The pictures in it are beautiful -- many full-page color photos, as well as smaller ones. Included are photos of the remains of construction by the Romans both in Rome itself and the empire, such as in England. Great book for teachers and those looking for illustrations of Roman life.

Very generic. More like a encyclopedia.

I purchased this book for my son's fifth grade project. It is comprehensive, yet easy to understand. The chapters are well labeled, so he could find the answers to his questions easily. I loved helping him with his project. Nothing like having the right book for the class.

A comprehensive and unbelievably detailed his of ancient Rome. I purchased a used copy that was one-third of the price of a new one. It came it virtually new condition. An excellent source of information and reference.
This large book is an impressive feat. It contains quite a lot of information, as well as photos. Even with the Internet, it's nice to have a compendium of photos if I want to see some examples of Roman architecture, etc.
