Rezensionen
"Barrett is the right person to edit this collection: he is an accomplished biographer of early Roman imperial personalities ... .A time line, family trees, informative maps, a few significant illustrations, useful glossary, and an adequate index fortify the text. Recommended." ( Choice Reviews , October 2008) "A great treat for those who already know the general outline of the history of the Roman Empire. Excellent writers [and] well-planned. A coherent unit." ( About.com)
