Editorial Reviews

"Useful perspectives and controversial points of discussion." (Scholia Reviews, 2009)
“A comprehensive treatment of an underappreciated film from a variety of critical perspectives” (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 2010)
“After reading the book, I reviewed The Fall of the Roman Empire, this time better informed about the director, the history (Roman and cinematic), the political and social issues of the day, details about production, comparison with contemporary and later films, and much more. Viewing the film from this expansive vantage point made for a rich experience.”
(Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, July 2011)
