5.0 von 5 Sternen The Sharp Contrasts of Roman Society. 11. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Reading Jérôme Carcopino's timeless account of life in ancient Rome brings the reader back to the dark, narrow, crowded Roman streets, flanked on both sides by teetering, five-story tenements. Although written in a style of long ago, therein lies the charm of this book. Jérôme Carcopino has effortlessly summoned 1st and 2nd Century Rome back to life. And what a society of contrasts he evokes: on the one hand, the highly refined aspects of Roman society, epitomized by the public baths, the public parks, the theater, and the dinners hosted by the wealthy for their friends; on the other hand, he describes compellingly the dark side of Roman society, in particular, slavery and the gladiatorial games which entertained the Roman public with the appallingly casual slaughter of both man and beast. His detailed accounts depict horrific spectacles pitting man against man, man against beast, beast against beast -- and woman against dwarf. The most interesting part of his book, though, is his insight respecting the toxic impact slavery had upon Roman society, both upon the poor pleb in general and upon the Roman family in particular. This book is a must for anyone captivated by Roman social history.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A modern classic on social customs in Imperial Rome. 9. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Jerome Carcopino's scholarly work on how the Romans of the second century A.D. saw and lived their lives has been in print for almost 60 years, and with good reason. This book provides, in addition to the basic facts and figures, a poignant commentary on the people and their times. Always reflective, the author does not hesitate to express his opinions (often in the first person) on his ancient subjects, whether they inspire admiration or revulsion. To bolster these opinions, he frequently quotes the views of contemporary scholars as well as ancient sources. While much of the text related to the modern era is dated and the archeological research treated as "recent" may have occurred very early in our century, "Daily Life in Ancient Rome" does not need updating or revising. The basic premise of the book, i.e., the social life and customs of the Romans, remains unaffected by the passage of time. Furthermore, the unaltered text and its references give us an interesting glimpse of Roman archeology and historical writing during the first half of the twentieth century and earlier. E. O. Lorimer's English translation of the original French text is fluid and well structured, while the bibliography and notes by Henry T. Rowell are excellent. "Daily Life in Ancient Rome" is a welcome reference for the student of Roman history

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ditto, ditto; don't-miss reading for fans of ancient Rome 28. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Were it not for the customer reviews below, I would have rejected this book for having three strikes against it: it was written in 1940, an English translation (groan) from French, and published by a university press -- a prescription for dated unreadablity. But not so! Though at first the typeface and writing style feel a little anachronistic (and the first chapter does NOT represent the richness to come), it quickly becomes charming and flowing. And what a bounty of fascinating detail is packed into its pages!
I wholly agree with what my unknown compatriots below have said. I can only add that I finished it with that rare, dejected feeling of "Oh, no! I've run out of book!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen objective portrait of Imperial Capital 23. Dezember 2009
Von mjare - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nice and readable presentation of the daily life in imperial Rome. You can ''see'' ordinary Romans from each social class living their everyday life. If you do not want to be affected by hollywood-like productions about antiquity, which present strongly artificial image of this epoch you have to read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classical work on Ancient Rome... 15. Februar 2010
Von Michael Valdivielso - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The beauty and horrors of the City of Rome comes out in detail - the people, the smells, the dirt and the energy. You may notice a few complaints about the age of the book, the old fashion feel to the author's writing (which I happen to enjoy) and some complaints about the sources he uses. But think about it - even poetry can be used to understand a culture. So even flawed history or fiction can be used to understand a time period - it tells us about the thoughts, ideals and view points of the author. And the author is a product of his time.
So, I have no issues with the sources Jerome Carcopino uses and feel the book is a wonderful excise in bringing to life the Roman people of the temples, baths, games, the busy streets. Can't you just picture the crowds of shouting venders, the begging homeless, the screaming children, the grumpy old people and the people whining about how good it was in the old days? The smell of fish, fresh bread, urine, unwashed peoples, perfumes and spices.
Books like this give us the image of what Rome was like. The passion and the glory, the Holidays and the slavery, the Emperors and the Gods.
