About the Author

Carlin A. Barton is Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and author of The Sorrows of the Ancient Romans (1993).


"A bold book. . . . written with passion. Like her earlier Sorrows of the Ancient Romans, it is also likely to arouse passionate responses, positive and negative, among her professional colleagues. The pace is rapid, the argument built up under short vivid sub-sections." * Times Literary Supplement *
