Donald Strong's book traces the development of Roman art from its beginnings to the end of the 4th century A.D., embracing the monuments of the Republic and then of the later Roman world, which extended from Britain to Mesopotamia and from the Rhine and Danube to North Africa. A special virtue is the demonstration of how all the arts of a given period combine to mirror its social, cultural, and ideological character. Roger Ling and a panel of other authorities have supplied full notes, furnishing references for research undertaken both before and after first publication. The bibliography, too, has been updated.
