Roman Urbanism: Beyond the Consumer City
Helen Parkins "Roman Urbanism: Beyond the Consumer City"
Routledge | 1997-07-23 | ISBN: 0415117712 | 227 pages | PDF | 3,3 MB
The study of Roman towns and cities has long been dominated by the "consumer city" model, which characterizes ancient cities as consumers, not producers. Roman Urbanism raises questions about how Roman cities are perceived by experts in the 1990s. The contributors use a variety of approaches and methodologies, considering the various social implications of Roman urbanism and the organization of urban space. This collection recontextualizes the economy of the Roman town where it belongs: in the realms of social and political relationships.
