William E. Dunstan is a visiting scholar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and teaches at North Carolina State University.


Will Dunstan's texts are always a pleasure to read and his Ancient Rome is enjoyable as well. The book is a delightful balance between the coverage of topics required of a text and the human elements of history included in the narrative that make history fun to explore. -- Richard Cusimano, University of Louisiana at Lafayette An excellent text: thorough and readable, balanced and inclusive. The strength of the book lies in Professor Dunstan's adept mingling of political and military history with cultural, social, and literary histories of Rome. An undergraduate text cannot divorce one for the rest if students are to gain a through understanding of the Roman world. -- William J. O'Neal, University of Toledo
