9780199583126: Rome, Ostia, Pompeii: Movement and Space.

Rome, Ostia, Pompeii: Movement and Space demonstrates how studies of the Roman city are shifting focus from static architecture to activities and motion within urban spaces. This volume provides detailed case studies from the three best-known cities from Roman Italy, revealing how movement contributes to our understanding of the ways different elements of society interacted in space, and how the movement of people and materials shaped urban development.

The chapters in this book examine the impressions left by the movement of people and vehicles as indentations in the archaeological and historical record, and as impressions upon the Roman urban consciousness. Through a broad range of historical issues, this volume studies movement as it is found at the city gate, in public squares and on the street, and as it is represented in texts. Its broad objective is to make movement meaningful for understanding the economic, cultural, political, religious, and infrastructural behaviours that produced different types and rhythms of interaction in the Roman city.

This volume's interdisciplinary approach will inform the understanding of the city in classics, ancient history, archaeology, and architectural history, as well as cultural studies, town planning, urban geography, and sociology.

Recensione:

The editors and contributors are to be commended for pointing us in a new direction and restoring movement to our reconstructions of Rome. ( Timothy O'Sullivan, Journal of Roman Studies)

will be of interest not only to students of the past but even to todays town planners ... opening a new historiography ( Prof. Barbara Levick, Greece & Rome)

this is a very rich volume that scholars will want to read in its entirety. ( Miko Flohr, The Classical Review)

This highly detailed and absorbing study crosses academic disciplines, is, as one would expect from its editors, thoroughly researched with an extensive bibliography, and is peppered with entertaining gems ( Caitlin McCall, World Archaeology)

Each chapter has something to recommend it ... this is a beautifully produced book that moves its reader onto and through the streets of the Roman city. ( Rebecca R. Benefiel, sehepunkte)

[the essays] maintain a high level of theoretical analysis and show thorough knowledge of both literary and archaeological sources ... A special feature is the bibliography, covering no fewer than 40 pages, and constituting a guide to the best work in Roman archaeology and social history in the last 100 years. A work of advanced scholarship for advanced scholars. ( R. L. Frank, CHOICE)

The evidence, theories, and methodologies used by the contributors provide a synthesis demonstrating how further study of movement in the Roman world can aid in explaining cultural, social, political and economic change. ( T.K. Henderson, Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

in presenting a broad collection of scholarship explicitly focused on movement, the editors have reinvigorated future research on space and movement and have proven its interdisciplinary applicability ... an ambitious and innovative collection of stimulating scholarship that is certain to have a considerable impact on the future of spatial studies and will clearly form a core text for both scholars and students of Roman urbanism for many years to come. ( Michael A. Anderson, American Journal of Archaeology)

L'autore:

Ray Laurence is Professor of Roman History and Archaeology at the University of Kent. In 2006 he won the 'Longman-History Today New Generation Prize for book most likely to inspire the young to study history' for his volume Pompeii The Living City.

David J. Newsome was awarded his PhD in 2010 from the University of Birmingham. He won the BABESCH-Byvanck Award in 2008 for his innovative research on traffic and urban change at Pompeii. Both have published widely on the Roman city.
