Reviews

"This book is an important contribution to our understanding of Pompeii and Herculaneum, for the author discusses both cities with equanimity, effectively weaving together the archaeological evidence (much of it recent) with information about Roman culture and always mindful of including the non-elites in his discussions. The illustrations, which are of consistently high quality, have been carefully chosen...All in all, this engaging text -- with its, useful notes, list of exhibits, and extensive bibliography -- will appeal to a wide readership, from the interested lay person to the university student. In fact, this reviewer would find it a useful text for courses on ancient cities and Roman culture." --Linda Maria Gigante, University of Louisville, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
