Life, Death, and Entertainment in the Roman Empireintroduces the extraordinary range of Roman society: family structure, slavery, gender identity, food supply, religion, and entertainment were all crucial to the Roman world. As views of Roman history have broadened in recent decades to encompass a wider range of topics, the need has grown for a single volume that can offer a starting point. The new appendix includes translations of two documents central for understanding the Roman entertainment industry. One contains imperial letters addressed to the Traveling Theatrical Association of Artisans of Dionysus with instructions on reorganizing festival games, including the Olympic Games; the second replies to Marcus Aurelius' proposal regarding limits on what gladiators and their trainers can charge, in the most important text we have on ancient gladiatorial games. The addition of Keith Hopkins's pathbreaking article on slavery completes the volume. Each essay brings readers into contact with broadly ranging evidence, as well as with a wide variety of approaches that are needed to study basic questions about the Roman world. Contributors include Greg S. Aldrete, Hazel Dodge, Bruce W. Frier, Maud W. Gleason, Ann E. Hanson, Keith Hopkins, David J. Mattingly, and David S. Potter. D. S. Potter is Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Greek and Latin, University of Michigan. D. J. Mattingly is Professor of Roman Archaeology, University of Leicester.
