Summary
"This wide-ranging study, which draws insights from archaeology and anthropology as well as Classics, substantially broadens our understanding of the gladiatorial contest and its place within the highly politicized cult practice of the Roman Empire. This book will be important reading for all students and scholars of the ancient world."--Jacket
