Forlagets beskrivelse
In recent years, a long-established view of the Roman Empire during its great age of expansion has been called into question by scholars who contend that this model has made Rome appear too much like a modern state. This is especially true in terms of understanding how the Roman government ordered the city--and the world around it--geographically. In this innovative, systematic approach, Daniel J. Gargola demonstrates how important the concept of space was to the governance of Rome. He explains how Roman rulers, without the means for making detailed maps, conceptualized the territories under Rome's power as a set of concentric zones surrounding the city. In exploring these geographic zones and analyzing how their magistrates performed their duties, Gargola examines the idiosyncratic way the elite made sense of the world around them and how it fundamentally informed the way they ruled over their dominion.

From what geometrical patterns Roman elites preferred to how they constructed their hierarchies in space, Gargola considers a wide body of disparate materials to demonstrate how spatial orientation dictated action, shedding new light on the complex peculiarities of Roman political organization.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
"Rather than trying to understand the [Roman] Empire through the lens of modern organizations and institutions, Gargola looks at the idiosyncratic way the elite viewed the geographical world around them and how it fundamentally informed the way they ruled over their dominion. From what geometrical patterns they preferred to how they constructed their hierarchies in space, Gargola brings together a wide body of disparate materials to demonstrate how spatial orientation dictated action"--
