These essays on family life in ancient Rome offer a timely and provocative new characterization of how this most elementary component of Roman society was structured. Recognizing that a traditional nuclear model is necessary for an understanding of Roman family organization, Keith R. Bradley argues that a broader, more extensive context must be established if this structure is to be fully appreciated. A seminal contribution to Roman social history, this book is essential reading for all interested in how the Roman family worked and lived.
