Daily Life in Ancient Rome: The People and the City at the Height of the Empire

Book review over “Daily Life in Ancient Rome” by Jerome Carcopino 2nd edition, New Haven, 2003.

Explain the thesis of the book (what is the authors argument?)
Short summaries of chapters or themes in the book.
Explain the 5 W’s (who, what, where, when, why).
What is the author’s credibility (is he/she a historian or scholar?)
Does the author provide scholarly resources?
The review should give the reader a good understanding of the book including length and intended audience.
The essay should be 3-4 double-spaced pages, with 1-inch margins, in Times New Roman 12 pt font.
In-line citations with page numbers and a bibliography must be used.(See Read & Write for citation information). Papers submitted without citations (including in-line with page numbers) will receive a zero.
Your paper should be written in the third person: Use words like “he”, “she”, “it”, “they”, but never “I”, we”, or “you”
You can put your name and the title in the header or you can use a cover page; the cover page does not count in length requirement.
