"One of the imperishable books of history." — The History Book Club Review. This abridged edition makes the great German scholar's multi-volume work accessible to a larger audience. Rivaling Gibbon, Macaulay, and Burckhardt in its scope and power, it chronicles Roman society and government from the second century BC to the end of the Republic and rise of Julius Caesar — and helped earn Mommsen the 1902 Nobel Prize in Literature.
