About the Authors
  • First published in 1924, as a second edition of a 1914 original, this informative book was aimed at school students and served to introduce a concise yet coherent and contextual picture of Roman history. The book explores, establishes and emphasizes the development of Roman character, social and political tendencies, the state of Italy and the Provinces and their relations to Rome, and the steps in the revolution during the last century of the Republic. Multiple photographs are included and a summary of the most important dates and events has been placed at the end of almost every chapter. This book provides a lucid and evocative examination of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, paying careful attention to the background, which led to landmark historical events, and will be of value to scholars of history as well as to anyone with an interest in the history of education.
