Summary
"In this revised and updated edition of Roman Pompeii: Space and Society, Ray Laurence looks at the latest archaeological and historical evidence to present an evaluation of the city of Pompeii that draws on the disciplines of architecture, geography and the social sciences. Pompeii is the focus of many major debates in classical history and archaeology as an essential source of evidence when questioning issues such as city planning, and the working of ancient economies. This study enhances our general understanding of the Roman world." "This book is invaluable for students and scholars in the fields of archaeology and ancient history, as well as rewarding reading for the many people who visit Pompeii."--BOOK JACKET
