A HISTORY OF ROMAN ART, ENHANCED EDITION is a lavishly-illustrated survey of the art of Rome and the Roman Empire from the time of Romulus to the death of Constantine, presented in its historical, political, and social context. This ENHANCED EDITION has added coverage on Etruscan art in the beginning of the text. All aspects of Roman art and architecture are treated, including private art and domestic architecture, the art of the Eastern and Western provinces, the art of freedmen, and the so-called minor arts, including cameos, silverware, and coins. The book is divided into four parts-Monarchy and Republic, Early Empire, High Empire, and Late Empire-and traces the development of Roman art from its beginnings in the 8th century BCE to the mid fourth century CE, with special chapters devoted to Pompeii and Herculaneum, Ostia, funerary and provincial art and architecture, and the earliest Christian art. The original edition of this text was warmly received in the market based on a high level of scholarship, comprehensive contents, and superb visuals.

Ob auf den Spuren der letzten Bewohner von Ostia, auf der Suche nach der Sibylle am Zauberberg des Apennin oder auf Streifzügen zu Wasser durch die Lagunenlandschaft Venetiens – Arnold Esch taucht auf seinen Wanderungen quer durch die vielfältigen Landschaften Italiens tief in die Geschichte des Landes ein und lässt den Leser lebendig daran teilhaben. Auf verlassenen römischen Straßen, auf alten Pilgerpfaden, durch etruskische Schluchtwege und auf den Bahnen des Viehtriebs durchstreift Arnold Esch sein Gelände – von der Antike bis ins 20. Jahrhundert. Die Ergebnisse historischer und archäologischer Forschung, die unterschiedliche Wahrnehmung italienischer Landschaft in der Malerei und in der Literatur werden in das Landschaftserlebnis einbezogen und geben dem Historiker auf seiner Spurensuche entscheidende Hinweise: Geschichte, die in der Landschaft vor Augen ist. Arnold Esch versteht es meisterhaft, den Wandel der Landschaft von der Vergangenheit in die Gegenwart nachzuvollziehen, und nimmt uns mit auf eine faszinierende Reise in oftmals unbekannte Gegenden. So kommen viele, ganz unterschiedliche Landschaftsbilder zusammen, die einen stimmungsvollen Eindruck von früheren Zeiten vermitteln und zu eigenen Erkundungen einladen.

LEXICON AND ATLAS OF THE MODERN WORLD COINCIDING WITH THE ANCIENT GREEK WORLD From Solon of the sixth century BCE to Alexander the Great of the fourth century BCE, the Ancient Greek World covered about six percent of our Modern World, but in this small inhabited territory many of the greatest deeds of history were accomplished in places whose names remained the same to this day or changed with the subsequent civilizations. In order to retrieve from this book some brief information about nearly four thousand of these places the researchers can approach it by their names in either the Modern world or the Ancient Greek World. For the Ancient Greeks, the earth was a flat oval sphere surrounded by a huge Ocean, longer from west to east than from north to south. In addition to Hellas (Greece), their world encompassed the lands of Southern Europe, North Africa and Egypt, and West and Central Asia. In relation to the Modern World, it covered from the British Isles and Gibraltar in the west to western China and India in the east and from southern Germany, the Ukraine and Kazakhstan in the north to north Africa, Ethiopia and the Arabian Sea in the south. In this publication, cities, islands, mountains, regions, rivers and seas are listed alphabetically with a brief description in the Lexicon and a reference to their locations on forty-two maps in the Atlas. They are all listed again by groups in the Index. Between the monumental publications about the geography of the Ancient Greek World and the specialized ones, there remained between them a gap to be filled in by an instrument providing a fairly comprehensive and always brief, clear and easy-to-handle listing of places. Filling in this gap with such an instrument is the purpose of this publication addressed primarily to the busy readers and writers of all types. http://www.greekancienthistory.com/

In the first book of its kind, art information expert Lois Swan Jones discusses how to locate visual and textual information on the Internet and how to evaluate and supplement that information with material from other formats--print sources, CD-ROMS, documentary videos, and microfiche sets--to produce excellent research results. The book is divided into three sections: Basic Information Formats; Types of Websites and How to Find Them; and How to Use Web Information. Jones discusses the strengths and limitations of Websites; scholarly and basic information resources are noted; and search strategies for finding pertinent Websites are included. Art Information and the Internet also discusses research methodology for studying art-historical styles, artists working in various media, individual works of art, and non-Western cultures--as well as art education, writing about art, problems of copyright, and issues concerning the buying and selling of art. This title will be periodically updated.
