Review of the hardback: '... the book offers useful syntheses of recent work in the field and almost textbook examples of the deployment of particular methodologies. ... I found the book useful and thought-provoking. Anyone wanting to think more broadly about Romanization or about Roman religion stands to learn much from this book.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
