Globalization Avant la Lettre: Globalization and the History of the Roman Empire

The historiography of the Roman Empire overstates the "local" integrity of Roman and non-Roman culture, and de-emphasizes the interconnections and proto-global essence of imperial society. Revisiting these interconnections suggests that the Roman Empire was a precursor to modern-day globalization.

Keywords: globalization; Roman Empire
