KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a reference work for classical students, a scholarly study of the people and the city at the height of the Empire, from the mid first century AD to the end of Claudius' reign. Against a reconstruction of the physical and historical aspects, a picture is drawn, from all sides, of the daily life, houses, clothes, food, entertainment, occupations, etc., etc. Yale Press has made such a good looking book of it, that the layman may be enticed into thinking it a book for the general reader.
