About the Author

Michael Peachin is Professor of Classics, New York University


"The Oxford Handbook of Social Relations in the Roman World is a valuable guide to many directions in contemporary research, and both editor and authors are to be congratulated for providing an essential resource." --Classical Journal "These are all wonderful essays that make the book a very rewarding read. This is a superb volume: both the editor and the contributors have to be congratulated for producing it!" --Bryn Mawr Classical Review "Peachin introduces and edits an exemplary contribution to the current academic genre of handbooks/companions to topics/authors. Thirty-five internationally known scholars of Roman History contribute significant studies on a wide range of topics not well discussed in standard compendia on Roman literature and history. All students of Roman society, from undergraduate to scholars, will profitably and enjoyably read everything in this handbook. Highly Recommended." --CHOICE
