Publisher: Sidgwick & Jackson Ltd.
Number of pages: 378

Description:
Although a large part of this book is written directly from the original sources, and none of it without frequent reference to them, it is, in the main, frankly a derivative history intended for readers who are not specialists. It attempts to give a view of the whole course of ancient Roman History within the limits of a single volume.
