These volumes consist of selected primary documents from ancient Rome, covering a range of over 1,000 years of Roman culture, from the foundation of the city to its sacking by the Goths. The selections cover a broad spectrum of Roman civilization, including literature, philosophy, religion, education, politics, military affairs, and economics. These English translations of literary, inscriptional, and papyrological sources, many of which are available nowhere else, create a mosaic of the brilliance, the beauty, and the power of Rome.

Professor Reinhold, a distinguished senior classicist, has produced a fascinating and accessible collection of essays devoted to the study of ancient history.
Meyer Reinhold attended the local Bushwick High School. Then, he received his Bachelor of Arts from the City College of the City University of New York in 1929 and his doctorate from Columbia University in 1933. He also studied in Rome for two years as a fellow of the American Academy.
From 1938 to 1955, Meyer Reinhold taught classical languages and literature at Brooklyn College, but he got fired when he refused to reveal his political affiliations to the government. The college later apologized to him and others for these unjust dismissals. In need of work, Reinhold joined his brother's advertising firm, Richmond Advertising Services, where he was vice president for ten years. He returned to academia as an associate professor of Greek, Latin, and ancient history at Southern Illinois University in 1965, moving on to the University of Missouri at Columbia in 1967 as a professor of classical studies. Promoted to Byler Distinguished Professor of Classical Studies in 1976, Reinhold left the university as an emeritus professor in 1980.
However, Meyer Reinhold did not retire from teaching and went on to found the Institute for the Classical Tradition at Boston University in 1991, where he was a visiting professor until 1995. Reinhold was also founder and co-editor of the International Journal of the Classical Tradition. As a writer, among his publications, many of which have remained in use in United States colleges, are some two dozen authored and edited books, including The Classical Drama, Essentials of Greek and Roman Classics: A Guide to the Humanities, and Studies in Classical History and Society.

As a teacher, Meyer Reinhold went against tradition in his belief that the classics should be taught in translation so that those who could not read Greek or Latin could also appreciate these ancient works.
Meyer Reinhold married Diane Roth on September 29, 1939. They had two children, Helen and Robert.
