Nov. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- New York Journal of Books reviewer  Jillian Abbot praises "Rome: A Cultural, Visual, and Personal History" and writes, "Robert Hughes’s latest tome, Rome: A Cultural, Visual, and Personal History, proves once again that this erudite man can take on a mammoth task such as chronicling the entire history of Rome, the city, and the Empire, from its foundation to the present day."  

Abbot writes, "Mr. Hughes explores and recounts the social and political contexts for the works of art he discusses, lending even more validity to his methodology."
