From our calendar and coins to our language and laws, the Romans left a formidable legacy and their influence can still be seen all around us, but how much do we really know about them? Bringing plenty of waggish wit to this daunting subject, Peter Jones takes stock of 1500 years of grandeur and turmoil, breaking down each major period into a series of concise nuggets that provide a fascinating commentary on every aspect of the Roman world. Under such headings as "Floating Elephants," "Caesar Seized," and "No Time for Orgies," Jones introduces Rome's history-making rulers, poets, gladiators, and arch-enemies, and provides the essential background information.
