A Companion to the Flavian Age of Imperial Rome provides a systematic and comprehensive examination of the political, economic, social, and cultural nuances of Rome's second Imperial dynasty. The Flavian Age, while lasting only 27 years (69-96 CE), was a crucial phase in the evolution of the Roman Empire. In addition to addressing the social and historical significance of the period, this volume includes essays on its material culture, art and literature, as well as its economic and political structures. --
Divided into six thematic sections and including contributions from over two dozen Classical Studies scholars, A Companion to the Flavian Age of Imperial Rome offers a thorough examination of life during the nearly three decades of Flavian rule. In an effort to further elucidate the complexities of this bygone age, the editor has included a series of appendices that provide detailed chronological and demographic information, as well as an extensive glossary of terms. This Companion will prove invaluable for anyone interested in better understanding the Flavian Age and its role in the propagation of the Roman Empire. --
