I give this book three stars for the art only. It is filled with many black and white photos of beautiful Roman artwork, mostly sculpture. Because of this, and the generally reasonable price you can obtain this book for, I highly recommend it to artists and lovers of art.

However, the literary content is very disappointing. In general, Perowne has all the facts correct. It is the way he presents them. At every opportunity, this author shows tremendous contempt for Roman religion. It is only near the end of the book, as the subject matter begins to glide into the introduction of Christianity into Rome, that our author becomes inspired.

Perowne's discussion of Augustus and his era is somewhat uplifting. It is obvious that he admires this particular period. But if you desire a book that gives a dispassionate look at Roman religion, this is not that book. The author despises the subject.
