Globalizing Roman Culture: Unity, Diversity and Empire

liked it 3.00  ·  Rating Details  ·  5 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
Romanization has been represented as a simple progression from barbarism to civilization. Roman forms in architecture, coinage, language, and literature came to dominate the world from Britain to Syria. Hingley argues for a more complex and nuanced view in which Roman models provided the means for provincial elites to articulate their own concerns.

Hingley's book is a carefully argued piece of work. For me, it was only ok because it would have benefitted a great deal had it brought more of the contemporary literature on globalization to bear on the topic. I see that the author is a classical archaeology specialist; this is evident in the author's approach to the subject. The book would have been more provocative if the author had used a more complex theoretical framework to explore its subject.

Useful for reconsidering what one means by "Romanization" and "Roman Culture." Good bibliography.
