9780141018096: Carthage Must Be Destroyed

The first full-scale history of Hannibal's Carthage in decades and "a convincing and enthralling narrative." (The Economist )

Drawing on a wealth of new research, archaeologist, historian, and master storyteller Richard Miles resurrects the civilization that ancient Rome struggled so mightily to expunge. This monumental work charts the entirety of Carthage's history, from its origins among the Phoenician settlements of Lebanon to its apotheosis as a Mediterranean empire whose epic land-and-sea clash with Rome made a legend of Hannibal and shaped the course of Western history. Carthage Must Be Destroyed reintroduces readers to the ancient glory of a lost people and their generations-long struggle against an implacable enemy.

About the Author:

Richard Miles teaches ancient history at the University of Sydney and is a Fellow-Commoner of Trinity Hall, University of Cambridge. He has written widely on Punic, Roman, and Vandal North Africa and has directed archaeological excavations in Carthage and Rome. He divides his time between Sydney, Australia, and Cambridge, England.

Review:

""Carthage Must Be Destroyed" is a fine, sweeping survey of the rise and fall of an empire and a glimpse into the diversity of the ancient world."
-"The Wall Street Journal"

"Historian Richard Mills, of Cambridge, makes telling use of the latest discoveries yielded by Carthaginian ruins in a splendid, comprehensive effort to present the city-state as a dynamic entity and minimize it as a victimized, second-tier society so often portrayed in the histories of Roman and Western interpreters. Blood-curdling battles receive their pyrrhic due, and Hannibal's trans-Alps adventure and his humbling demise are covered in masterful detail."
-(Newark) "Star-Ledger"

""Carthage Must Be Destroyed" is a fine, sweeping survey of the rise and fall of an empire and a glimpse into the diversity of the ancient world."
-"The Wall Street Journal"

"You know a story is great when it grips you even when you know how it turns out ... Miles has written an engaging, richly documented study that merges able storytelling with equally able scholarship. It's quite a tale."
-"Philadelphia Inquirer"
