From Romulus to Romulus Augustulus; Roman history for the new millennium. Williams, Rose. (Latin for the new millennium) Bolchazy-Carducci Pub., ©2008 71 p. $12.00 DG77 978-0-86516-691-2 A veteran high school and university Latin teacher, Williams provides a whirlwind overview of the entire history of Rome from its founding in the eighth century BCE to its successor Italian states in the sixth century CE. She says anyone studying the period can use it for a quick reference; an index would have enhanced its utility, but perhaps doubled its size. (Annotation ©2008 Book News Inc. Portland, OR)
