City and country in the ancient world by John Rich( )

47 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and Turkish and held by 2,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ancient Greco-Roman world was a world of citie, in a distinctive sense of communities in which countryside was dominated by urban centre.

Houses and society in Pompeii and Herculaneum by Andrew Wallace-Hadrill( Book )

25 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in English and Italian and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few sources reveal the life of the ancient Romans as vividly as do the houses preserved by the eruption of Vesuvius. Wealthy Romans lavished resources on shaping their surroundings to impress their crowds of visitors. The fashions they set were taken up and imitated by ordinary citizens. In this illustrated book, Andrew Wallace-Hadrill explores the rich potential of the houses of Pompeii and Herculaneum to offer new insights into Roman social life. Exposing misconceptions derived from contemporary culture, he shows the close interconnection of spheres we take as discrete: public and private, family and outsiders, work and leisure." "Combining archaeological evidence with Roman texts and comparative material from other cultures, Wallace-Hadrill raises a range of new questions. How did the organization of space and the use of decoration help to structure social encounters between owner and visitor, man and woman, master and slave? What sort of "households" did the inhabitants of the Roman house form? How did the world of work relate to that of entertainment and leisure? How widely did the luxuries of the rich spread among the houses of craftsmen and shopkeepers? Through analysis of the remains of over two hundred houses, Wallace-Hadrill reveals the remarkably dynamic social environment of early imperial Italy, and the vital part that houses came to play in defining what it meant to live as a Roman."--Jacket
Suetonius : the scholar and his Caesars by Andrew Wallace-Hadrill( Book )

35 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the "Lives of the Caesars" as a document of the culture and attitudes of the early empire. Suetonius is placed in his true literary context as a man of learning rather than a failed narrative historian; and emperors and imperial society are seen through the eyes of a scholarly biographer who himself served a scholarly Caesar, the Emperor Hadrian
Rome's cultural revolution by Andrew Wallace-Hadrill( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The period of Rome's imperial expansion, the late republic and earlier empire, saw transformations of its society, culture and identity. Drawing equally on archaeological and literary evidence, this book offers an original and provocative interpretation of these changes. Moving from recent debates about colonialism and cultural identity, both in the Roman world and more broadly, and challenging the traditional picture of 'romanisation' and 'hellenisation', it offers instead a model of overlapping cultural identities in dialogue with one another. It attributes a central role to cultural change in the process of redefinition of Roman identity, represented politically by the crisis of the republican system and the establishment of the new Augustan order."--Jacket
Herculaneum : past and future by Andrew Wallace-Hadrill( Book )

31 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In AD 79, the volcano Vesuvius erupted, burying the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum under ash and rock, and leaving them remarkably well preserved for centuries. While Pompeii has been extensively written about and popularized, the remains of Herculaneum are less widely known, but they have yielded spectacular archaeological evidence. This is the first major study of Herculaneum since that of Joseph Jay Deiss, published in 1966 and last revised in 1993. ... Andrew Wallace-Hadrill revisits the evidence to unpick what is known from the speculation and fanciful invention, building a far richer impression of the town: its population, its public and private spaces and its place in the Roman world. He points up the similarities and differences between Herculaneum and its more famous neighbour, decodes the confusing mix of different types of people apparently living closely along side each other, examines the extensive documentary evidence and tackles head-on the complexities of excavating, preserving, restoring and presenting this priceless archaeological resource."--Jacket

The British School at Rome : one hundred years by Andrew Wallace-Hadrill( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The British School at Rome celebrated its first hundred years of activity with this account, richly illustrated with over 270 images drawn from its archives. The main narrative examines the way the School has from the start responded to the opportunities offered by Rome in bringing together archaeologists and historians with artists, architects and art historians in a fruitful marriage of interests. It underlines both the continuities that link the vision of Thomas Ashby to the present, and the transformations by which the institution has adapted itself to the changing current of European history.

Rome, les Césars et la ville aux deux premiers siècles de notre ère by Nicole Belayche( )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage examine les relations complexes entre la personne impériale - et les empereurs successifs - et la Ville de Rome, en tant que ville, espace et capitale, pendant les deux premiers siècles du Principat. Nicole BELAYCHE a rassemblé sur cette question une "équipe" de chercheurs, français et étrangers, fédérant les disciplines du champ historique : histoire politique et idéologique, histoire sociale, histoire culturelle et religieuse, histoire urbaine et topographique. Car les problèmes posés par la/les relation/s entre les Césars et la Ville se situent au confluent de ces approches et c'est précisément le caractère englobant de la question qui la rend utile à notre compréhension de l'Empire romain aux Ier et IIe siècles de notre ère. Cette réflexion collective s'appuie sur le profond renouvellement documentaire offert depuis une génération par les découvertes archéologiques ou la reconsidération de certains sites romains, sur l'affinement de l'approche de la nature du pouvoir impérial et de son expression dans les différents règnes, sur l'explicitation de la subtilité du langage idéologique mis en oeuvre par les empereurs dans leur politique de "communication", enfin sur une appréciation renouvelée de la Rome impériale classique à la lumière des concepts élaborés par les géographes autour de la notion de grande ville
