Volume 11 of the second edition of The Cambridge Ancient History covers the history of the Roman empire from A.D. 70 to 192--Vespasian to the Antonines. The volume begins with the political and military history of the period. Developments in the structure of the empire are then examined, including the organization and personnel of the central government and province-based institutions and practices. A series of provincial studies follows, and the society, economy and culture of the empire as a whole are reviewed in a group of thematic chapters.


"... this is a reliable work which both scholars and students can use with confidence. The individual contributors must be commended for submitting such excellent material. But it is the editors... who deserve the warmest commendation for the sureness of their judgement in soliciting contributions of high calibre and for editing the work of many different historians to produce a volume which is ... both accurate on matters of fact and secure in its historical assessments and which... displays greater originality than most collective works of this nature."--International History Review

"This series is a basic 'must' for all public and private libraries, in the community or in universities. It will be the standard general work for serious academic students and scholars for the next generation."--Religious Studies Review
