    : The aim of this book - a collection of fifty-seven passages from six Roman writers spanning nearly 150 years from about 30 BCE to CE 130 -is to provide a history of early Empire social life, culture and thought and a fascinating glimpse into what the citizens of Rome saw, heard, thought and tasted in their daily routine. Much of what these writers tell us is universal and timeless; many of their themes still resonate and challenge us today some two thousand years later. Issues that troubled the Romans continue to inform our own twenty-first century views and behaviour. The pieces included here can be dipped into at random, read in sequence as social history or read as self-contained themed chapters. The selection of pieces has been influenced to a large extent by the passages prescribed by various examination boards for their Roman society, culture and thought modules, thus making it a convenient one-stop source book for students and teachers of classical civilization and classics courses. Up until publication of When in Rome...the prescribed passages were only available in four separate books. It is then a book for anyone interested in Roman society and the Roman way of doing things - be they general reader, historian or classicist.
