He presents material in the following categories: Rural, Rural-Urban, Urban, and Class-related quotations. CONTENTS: I. Rural II. Rural-Urban III. Urban IV. Class V. What Follows Appendix A: Subdivisions of the City Appendix B: The Lexicon of Snobbery Appendix C: Roman City Financing Ramsay MacMullen is Dunham Professor of Classics and History at Yale University.
