One of the strengths of Roman Cities in Italy and Dalmatia is its ability to explore lesser known cities and introduce the reader to them in a scholarly way. When exploring cities such as Praeneste, Norba, Circeii, Terracina, Falerii, Turin, Verona and Aosta, Frothingham brings new information to anticipating readers. In addition to the information this book brings, many photos are provided. The primary argument posed by this book is that to understand Roman history as a whole, one must understand both the large cities and the small ones too. Frothingham defends this argument by showing the importance of the smaller cities he investigates throughout the book.
For the individual interested in Roman history and for one who cannot travel to Rome to explore these places first hand, Roman Cities in Italy and Dalmatia is invaluable. For those that have the ability and desire to travel to Rome, reading Frothingham's book in advance will help increase both your knowledge in the area and your knowledge of Roman history as a whole. What the book may lack in unity, it makes up for by its depth and breadth when considering both the individual examinations Frothingham puts forth and the overarching conclusions he reaches.
