In SPQR, an instant classic, Mary Beard narrates the history of Rome. The work examines not just how we think of ancient Rome but challenges the comfortable historical perspectives that have existed for centuries. With its nuanced attention to class, democratic struggles, and the lives of entire groups of people omitted from the historical narrative for centuries, SPQR will shape our view of Roman history for decades to come. 100 illustrations; 16 pages of color; 5 maps.
