9780500051504, titled "The Complete Pompeii" | Reprint edition (Thames & Hudson, November 22, 2007), cover price $40.00 | About this edition: A comprehensive visual survey of the ancient city draws on cutting-edge architectural research to reconstruct the latest beliefs about Pompeii's history, discussing such topics as the lives and deaths of its citizens, its political and religious structures, and its destruction by the eruption of AD 79.

This provocative and often controversial volume examines concepts of ethnicity, citizenship and nationhood, to determine what constituted cultural identity in the Roman Empire. The contributors draw together the most recent research and use diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives from archaeology, classical studies and ancient history to challenge our basic assumptions of Romanization and how parts of Europe became incorporated into a Roman culture.Cultural Identity in the Roman Empire breaks new ground, arguing that the idea of a unified and easily defined Roman culture is over-simplistic, and offering alternative theories and models. This well-documented and timely book presents cultural identity throughout the Roman empire as a complex and diverse issue, far removed from the previous notion of a dichotomy between the Roman invaders and the Barbarian conquered.
By Joanne Berry (editor) and Ray Laurence (editor)
