this book is divided into five separate but interrelated parts. In the major text the art of the Romans is described chronologically as it reflects political, social, economic, and cultural forces in the Roman state, both the Republic and the Empire. Biographies and portraits of the Roman rulers open each chapter, and this text is buttressed by 159 full-page color-plates. Black-and-white documentary photographs, grouped together in the second part, present the major artistic ensembles characteristic of Roman art. Architecture and urban planning receive similarly comprehensive treatment in the 3rd part. More than 50 important archaeological sites throughout the farflung Empire. beginning with the city of Rome itself are studied in detail. The remaining parts of this volume provide a description of the architectural techniques and types employed by the Romans, and a lexicon that furnishes the reader with information useful in understanding the history and art of the Romans.
