This accessible narrative for general readers and historians draws on archaeological evidence to show how ancient Rome rose from a village to a world power. The book examines the rise of Rome within its broader Italian context and outlines differences and similarities between Rome and the rest of Italy. It explains how various ethnic groups and language groups cooperated or competed to expand weapons and government in the region and gives details on how they conquered territories and changed political structures to solidify the Roman Empire. The book includes color photos of cites and antiquities, along with b&w maps. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
