NOTES FOR FURTHER READING

OUT of the vast literature on ancient Rome mention will be made here of a few books--in English only--of a more or less general character, which may be found suggestive and useful for reference. Nothing will therefore be said of the equally extensive writings in other languages or of the great array of articles, reporting the conclusions of research, in periodicals.

PART I (HISTORICAL SKETCH). Our most important survey of the whole field is provided by successive volumes of the Cambridge Ancient History ( IX-XII, 1932-39). There is also the shorter History of the Ancient World of Methuen ( 146-30 B.C., F. B. Marsh, 2nd ed., 1953; 30 B.C.-A.D. 1 38), E. T. Salmon, 1944; A.D. 138-3 37), H. M. D. Parker , 1935). One-volume histories are provided by M. Cary, History of Rome ( 2nd ed., 1957), and A. E. R. Boak, A History of Rome to A.D. 5 65) ( 4th ed., 1955); The Legacy of Rome, ed. Cyril Bailey ( 1924), covers a wide field briefly. We have nothing to compare with A. Piganiol's Histoire de Rome ( 4th ed., 1954) in which a historical survey is supported by detailed bibliographical notes indicating the sources of the research upon which it is based. For the first part of our period see especially H. H. Scullard, From the Gracchi to Nero ( 1959), and for the later years C. G. Starr, Civilisation and the Caesars ( 1954). General works of reference include the Oxford Classical Dictionary ( 1949), P. Harvey's Oxford Companion to Classical Literature ( 3rd ed., 1946), and A. A. M. van der Heyden and H. H. Scullard, Atlas of the Classical World ( 1959). Excerpts from ancient sources are collected in translation by N. Lewis and M. Reinhold, Roman Civilisation ( 2 vols., 1951, 1955), E. Barker, From Alexander to Constantine ( 1956), and (more briefly) Paul Mac- Kendrick , The Roman Mind at Work ( 1958), M. Grant, Roman Readings ( 1958).

PART II (STATE AND SOCIETY). On politics R. Syme's Roman Revolution ( 1939; reprinted) is fundamental; see also F. E. Adcock,
