The Roman Empire was a remarkable achievement. With a population of sixty million people, it encircled the Mediterranean and stretched from northern England to North Africa and Syria. This Very Short Introduction covers the history of the empire at its height, looking at its people, religions and social structures. It explains how it deployed violence, ‘romanisation’, and tactical power to develop an astonishingly uniform culture from Rome to its furthestoutreaches.
