This beautifully written study is the most comprehensive study of Rome from 753 B.C. to 264 B.C.. It is an important synthesis of the many developments in research over the last couple of decades. It adheres closely to the available sources, dealing with economic, social, literary and religious history, as well as telling the story of internal politics and foreign policy.
"Destined to become the standard work in English on early Rome, this is a substantial, lively, and consistently excellent volume... his [Cornell's] ability to set apparent Roman anomalies within a larger Italian context is often decisive in breaking open a controversy and helping the reader to understand it in a new and different way ."--Religious Studies Review
