From Village to Empire introduces ancient Rome to readers eager for a concise and engaging understanding of its political, social, and cultural history. It traces Rome's remarkable evolution from monarchy, to republic, to one-man rule by an emperor whose power stretched from Scotland to Iraq and far up the Nile valley.

"A wonderful new textbook for my course on the Roman republic to Augustus. Fills a yawning gap. Nothing comparable exists."--William Turpin, Swarthmore College"Fresh, comprehensive, and up-to-date, this volume will meet a long-standing need among undergraduates and general readers for a new, stand-alone survey of Roman history. The authors strike a judicious balance between lively and well-paced narrative and thoughtful treatments of institutional and thematic topics. All in all, this is a tour de force of historical synthesis and a benchmark for the field."--Nathan Rosenstein, Ohio State University"At long last, we have a thorough, clearly written, well-informed, eminently sensible introduction to Roman History. Many of us have been waiting quite a long time for the appearance of such a book."--Thomas McGinn, Vanderbilt University
