"Scullard's command of scholarship and his ability to evaluate all types of evidence are combined with an exemplary clarity in language: this is an impressive and highly useful book... Scullard moves with controlled ease through details of archaeological evidence, the vague references of literary sources and bits of linguistic data."--Doris Taylor Bishop, Classical World
In The Etruscan Cities and Rome, Howard H. Scullard examines the cities of Etruria, the dominant power on the Italian peninsula just prior to the ascendancy of Rome. Though eventually conquered by the Romans, the Etruscans exerted enormous influence on Roman political and social institutions. Scullard describes the mysterious origins of these people, their years of conquest and expansion, and their encounters with Greeks, Romans, Celts, and others. Generously illustrated, the book admirably captures the distinct qualities of Etruria's various urban centers -- from the southern cities where art and handicrafts flourished, to the metal-working northern cities, to the outlying Etruscan areas of Latium and Campania.
"Comprehensive, helpful, sensible and well aware of current discoveries and research... Professor Scullard, with the help of 120 good plates, has had the excellent idea of treating [the cities] not only as a group but also as a number of distinct idiosyncratic units. His views on the eternally discussed major questions are always prudent."--Times Literary Supplement
"A description of each site is enhanced by a plan and by photographs of the major remains of buildings, finds, and works of art. Descriptions are correlated with available testimony of ancient writers. Thus the book is both a 'travel book' and a history of the individual cities... The book's contribution lies in its synthesis of evidence from various sources and in the reconstruction of the development, status, and history of the individual cities."--Inez Scott Ryberg, American Historical Review
