Seek a good introductory book on Roman history

My requirements:
1. covering the roman history from its very start till 5th ad century
2. covering not just political and militarty history, but also everyday life, literature, philosophy, science etc.
3. high/academic level. introduce also the sources and main historians' disagreements.
4. 300-600 pages
I enjoied Van de Meiroop's books on ancient egypt and near east. so something similar would be great.

Mary Beard's new book, SPQR, does not cover the entire time period, but much of it, and is very good.

Adrian Goldsworthy has a bunch of books out on Ancient Rome, including a couple of more general books.
