The publication intended for both the professional and general public is devoted to the Roman Empire, the long-time hegemon of the ancient world. The main features of the Roman Empire are outlined in a synthesising manner and summarise the main developmental trends and basic terminology. The discussed topics have been selected subjectively and aim to provide readers with an overview of the themes that also emerged in the current debate on the role and form of the state (e.g. government and state administration, defence and military, social integration and polarisation). The part of Roman history that occurred in the territory of the Czech Republic when it found itself under the rule of Rome for a brief time, is presented in a separate chapter.
