More than 80 years after its first publication, HH Scullard's acclaimed overview of Roman history still offers much to students and professional scholars alike, as Tim Cornell demonstrates in his new foreword to this fourth edition. Covering six centuries from the city's foundation and the establishment of the Republic to the Punic Wars and the fall of Carthage, Scullard examines the Romans' predilection for law and order, organization and administration, which enabled them to build the foundations of a great empire.
