"Family structure, gender identity, food supply, religion, and entertainment are all crucial to an understanding of the Roman world. As views of Rom an history have broadened in recent decades to encompass a wider range of topics, the need has grown for a single volume that can offer a starting point for all these diverse subjects, for readers of all backgrounds. This collection fills such a ne ed by uniting a series of general introductions on each of these topics for the nonspecialist. Each essay brings readers into contact with broadly ranging evidence, as well as a wide variety of approaches that are needed to study basic questions ab out the Roman world. Essays explore the Roman family, gender definition, demography, Roman food supply, Roman religion, and the wide variety of public entertainment throughout the empire. The volume brings together an unparalleled range of methodo logies and topics. It will enable the modern reader to understand the Roman world in all its complexity." Fine/Fine
