Rome was a huge city. Running it required not only public works and services but also specialised law. This innovative work traces the development of that law and system in the main areas of administration. The book incorporates and develops previous historical and topographical works by relating their findings to the Roman legal framework, building up a portrait of public administration, unusually comprehensive for the ancient world.

O. F. Robinson is Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Law, University of Glasgow. She is the co-author of European Legal History.Review:
`In fourteen chapters the author of this handsomely produced book deals with many aspects of urban adminstration ... Provides a reliable discussion of the bureaucracy in the ancient city. Everyone interested in Roman antiquity will find much useful information. This holds true for archaologists in particular who are not accustomed to work with Roman legal texts. - Mnemosyne
`Scholarly in approach, informative on points of detail and comprehensive in range, her book will be of interest to all Roman historians, whether as a work of reference or simply as a fascinating read... Classics faculties and departments should be grateful to this lecturer in law at Glasgow and should order her admirable book for their shelves. She has conveniently gathered together a mass of information and interprted it from an original angle.' - JACT Review
`... had me curling my toes with pleasure as [Robinson] took me in fine detail through every apect of the legal regulation, administration and control (no archaeology here) of the most populous city of the western world before the Industrial revolution...' - ad familiares, Zeitschrift Savigny-Stiftung fur Rechtsgeschichte
