Book Description :

Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller Shortlisted for a British Book Industry Book of the Year Award 2016 The new series Ultimate Rome: Empire Without Limit is on BBC2 now Ancient Rome matters. Its history of empire, conquest, cruelty and excess is something against which we still judge ourselves. Its myths and stories - from Romulus and Remus to the Rape of Lucretia - still strike a chord with us. And its debates about citizenship, security and the rights of the individual still influence our own debates on civil liberty today. SPQR is a new look at Roman history from one of the world's foremost classicists. It explores not only how Rome grew from an insignificant village in central Italy to a power that controlled territory from Spain to Syria, but also how the Romans thought about themselves and their achievements, and why they are still important to us. Covering 1,000 years of history, and casting fresh light on the basics of Roman culture from slavery to running water, as well as exploring democracy, migration, religious controversy, social mobility and exploitation in the larger context of the empire, this is a definitive history of ancient Rome. SPQR is the Romans' own abbreviation for their state: Senatus Populusque Romanus, 'the Senate and People of Rome'.

SPQR: A HISTORY OF ANCIENT ROME - SUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book. SPQR: A HISTORY OF ANCIENT ROME masterfully tells the story of Rome from its inception as a small Italian village to the sprawling empire ruled by the fourteen emperors. From the humble, if not treacherous, beginnings of Romulus to the fall of the Republic with Julius Caesar SPQR goes behind the scenes of the greatest imperial power the ancient world had ever seen. Rome was a land built on mythical battles taking place in Italy until one leader took the idea of expansion and annexation to another level. As Sicily falls into the hands of the Romans all the way to the fall of Britain, Beard walks the reader through the progression of Roman rule. PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Book Description :

From the bestselling author of SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome, the fascinating story of how images of Roman autocrats have influenced art, culture, and the representation of power for more than 2,000 years What does the face of power look like? Who gets commemorated in art and why? And how do we react to statues of politicians we deplore? In this book—against a background of today’s “sculpture wars”—Mary Beard tells the story of how for more than two millennia portraits of the rich, powerful, and famous in the western world have been shaped by the image of Roman emperors, especially the “twelve Caesars,” from the ruthless Julius Caesar to the fly-torturing Domitian. Twelve Caesars asks why these murderous autocrats have loomed so large in art from antiquity and the Renaissance to today, when hapless leaders are still caricatured as Neros fiddling while Rome burns. Beginning with the importance of imperial portraits in Roman politics, this richly illustrated book offers a tour through 2,000 years of art and cultural history, presenting a fresh look at works by artists from Memling and Mantegna to the nineteenth-century African American sculptor Edmonia Lewis, as well as by generations of now-forgotten weavers, cabinetmakers, silversmiths, printers, and ceramicists. Rather than a story of a simple repetition of stable, blandly conservative images of imperial men and women, Twelve Caesars is an unexpected tale of changing identities, clueless or deliberate misidentifications, fakes, and often ambivalent representations of authority. From Beard’s reconstruction of Titian’s extraordinary lost Room of the Emperors to her reinterpretation of Henry VIII’s famous Caesarian tapestries, Twelve Caesars includes some fascinating detective work and offers a gripping story of some of the most challenging and disturbing portraits of power ever created.

Book Description :

An updated edition of the Sunday Times Bestseller Britain's best-known classicist Mary Beard, is also a committed and vocal feminist. With wry wit, she revisits the gender agenda and shows how history has treated powerful women. Her examples range from the classical world to the modern day, from Medusa and Athena to Theresa May and Hillary Clinton. Beard explores the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, considering the public voice of women, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template. A year on since the advent of #metoo, Beard looks at how the discussions have moved on during this time, and how that intersects with issues of rape and consent, and the stories men tell themselves to support their actions. In trademark Beardian style, using examples ancient and modern, Beard argues, 'it's time for change - and now!' From the author of international bestseller SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome.

Book Description :

Fifteen centuries after its fall, the Roman Empire still has the power to fascinate. The crumbling ruins and rutted roads in the lands where its mighty empire once held sway are testament to the vast scope of its greatness and a reminder of the mortality of glory. When the first edition of the Horizon Book of Ancient Rome appeared in 1966, it set the standard as an introduction to this great empire, and today, it continues to be a magnificent guidebook to a civilization that had endured for more than a thousand years and left to us a bequest both timeless and dynamic. Since the book's publication, there have been exciting discoveries and fresh interpretations that have deepened our understanding of the Roman world. Numerous archaeological excavations have found evidence of Roman architecture and communities throughout the Mediterranean and have revealed such precious jewels as the Vindolanda Tablets (a marvelous collection of private letters from Roman soldiers stationed at the Empire's lonely outpost in northern England). Increasingly sophisticated techniques in excavation have revealed entire Roman cities in northern Africa, and in the heart of Rome itself, the great Imperial markets have been unearthed and reconstructed. The Emperor Nero's palace, the Domus Aurea, also has been meticulously restored and opened to the public for the first time since the fall of Rome. Roman coin discoveries (the Hoxne Hoard being only one) and their display on dozens of accessible Internet sites have made it as easy to own and study a genuine piece of Roman history as it was formerly to read about it. ROBERT PAYNE has written many highly praised and popular books on historical topics, including The Gold of Troy, Alexander the God, The Roman Triumph, and The Isles of Greece. RORY O'NEILL and EDEN GREIG MUIR, both professors at the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University, are the founders of Cybersites, Inc., a New York city-based developer of interactive online communities. They also developed S.P.Q.R., a CD-ROM game set in ancient Rome, from which the computer-generated images included in this book have been selected. BERNARD FISHER, Ph.D., Fellow, American Academy in Rome; Professor of Classics at UCLA, and VASILY RUDICH, Ph.D., a Blegen Research Fellow and Visiting Professor of Classics at Vassar College, were historical and archaeological consultants on these images.

Explore the Captivating History of the Roman Republic When we think of ancient Rome, the first notion that comes to mind is the one of the empire, followed by the image of a mighty emperor, his legions, colossal buildings, and the Gladiators (or the rhetoric and poetry, depending on your preferences). Some may recall the image of a "unified" Europe under a single sovereign - the emperor of Rome. However, Rome did not become remarkable at this considerably late phase. In fact, many historians see the history of Rome under the Emperors as a long, gradual decline. It was during the Republic that Rome gained an empire. Most of the achievements that the first emperor of Rome, Octavian Augustus, claimed to have completed were, in fact, earned during the Roman Republic. In this book, we'll have a close look at the beginning of Roman civilization, the foundation of the city and the Senate, the expansion of the Roman Republic, its glory, and its end. Some of the topics covered in this book include: The Past that Made It Possible: The Foundation of Rome between Myth and History Down with the Kings: The Past that Made It Happen Early Republic Military Achievements of Early Republic: Taking Italy Middle Republic: The Punic Wars and Mediterranean Dominance The Military vs. Cultural Dominance: The Roman Civilization meets the Greek World Limitless Power and the Beginning of the End: The Late Republic The Age of the Generals: Pompeius, Crassus, and Caesar Senatus Populus-Que Romanus (SPQR) and Its Downfall The Rise and Fall of Julius Caesar and the End of the Roman Republic And a Great Deal More You Don't Want to Miss Out On!

Book Description :

"A genuinely bracing and innovative history of Rome." --Times Literary Supplement The Triumph of Empire takes us into the political heart of imperial Rome and recounts the extraordinary challenges overcome by a flourishing empire. Roman politics could resemble a blood sport: rivals resorted to assassination as emperors rose and fell with bewildering speed, their reigns sometimes measured in weeks. Factionalism and intrigue sapped the empire from within, and imperial succession was never entirely assured. Michael Kulikowski begins with the reign of Hadrian, who visited the farthest reaches of his domain and created a stable frontier, and takes us through the rules of Marcus Aurelius and Diocletian to Constantine, who overhauled the government, introduced a new state religion, and founded a second Rome. Despite Rome's political volatility, imperial forces managed to defeat successive attacks from Goths, Germans, Persians, and Parthians. "This is a wonderfully broad sweep of Roman history. It tells the fascinating story of imperial rule from the enigmatic Hadrian through the dozens of warlords and usurpers who fought for the throne in the third century AD to the Christian emperors of the fourth--after the biggest religious and cultural revolution the world has ever seen." --Mary Beard, author of SPQR "This was an era of great change, and Kulikowski is an excellent and insightful guide." --Adrian Goldsworthy, Wall Street Journal
