Leisure and Ancient Rome
What role did leisure play in the life of ancient Rome? For us in the modern world, leisure is secondary to work. But in ancient Rome leisure was central to social life and an integral part of its history.
Informed by the work of anthropologists and sociologists as well as historians, this highly innovative book also represents a significant contribution to what Marc Bloch called "a more human history", that is , to history understood as a dialogue between us and the past.
Leisure and Ancient Rome will be of particular interest to students and scholars of ancient history, classics, cultural history and the sociology and anthropology of culture.
