The Roman Market Economy uses the tools of modern economics to show how trade, markets, and the Pax Romana were critical to ancient Rome's prosperity.

This book focuses on the economic performance of the Roman empire, analysing the extent to which Roman political domination of the Mediterranean and north-west Europe created the conditions for the integration of agriculture, production, trade, and commerce across the regions of the empire.

"A ground-breaking study using the principles of New Institutional Economics to analyze the impact of legal policy in balancing the interests of Roman tenant-farmers and landowners in the 2-4 centuries C.E. Kehoe’s book will be essential reading for historians of the Roman Empire, demonstrating how the government overcame challenges and contradictions as it sought to regulate this enormous sector of the economy."
—Susan D. Martin, Professor of Classics, University of Tennessee

"The author must be praised for having written the first monograph which studies a large sector of the Roman economy from an institutionalist perspective. Using the analytical tool-box developed by this school of thought, the author offers many penetrating analyses of the nature, aims, and effects of legal intervention in the rural economy."
—Luuk De Ligt, The Journal of Roman Studies
