Synopses & Reviews
Over the course of centuries, many stories on the origin of Rome have arisen. Sorbonne professor of classics Alexandre Grandazzi places these accounts in their contemporary contexts to produce a depiction of Rome's origins that is both up-to-date and provocative. The methodological and historiographical dimensions of the book-- first published in France in 1991--have endeared it to many even outside the field of ancient history.
