9780297864288: Resisting Rome: The Leaders Who Fought the Roman Empire
Reseña del editor:

For much of its thousand year history, Rome was an invincible power protected by the most formidable army of the ancient world. To attack Rome, or even to resist its irrepressible advances, was to invite annihilation - and yet, throughout its history, there were those who tried. Some are famous, like Hannibal, Spartacus and Attila, while the names of others are all but forgotten. This comprehensive history describes how Rome appeared to its enemies, how a handful of leaders successfully held the empire at bay, and the terrible fate that awaited those who fought Rome and failed.

Resisting Rome covers the entire history of Rome from its early days as a republic to the final collapse of the empire in the sixth century AD. All of Rome's major enemies are covered, from the Greeks and Persians in the east to the Goths, Gauls and Britons in the north and west. Each chapter concentrates on a single leader, using a key episode in their campaign both to tell the larger story and to analyse specific themes. Comprehensive in scope and gripping in detail, this will prove to be the definitive work on the leaders and peoples who dared to defy the might of Rome.

Descripción Orion Publishing Co, United Kingdom, 2017. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 242 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Pax Romana is famous for having provided a remarkable period of peace and stability, rarely seen before or since. Yet the Romans were first and foremost conquerors, imperialists who took by force a vast empire stretching from the Euphrates in the east to the Atlantic coast in the west. Their peace meant Roman victory and was brought about by strength and dominance rather than co-existence with neighbours. The Romans were aggressive and ruthless, and during the creation of their empire millions died or were enslaved. But the Pax Romana was real, not merely the boast of emperors, and some of the regions in the Empire have never again lived for so many generations free from major wars. So what exactly was the Pax Romana and what did it mean for the people who found themselves brought under Roman rule? Acclaimed historian Adrian Goldsworthy tells the story of the creation of the Empire, revealing how and why the Romans came to control so much of the world and asking whether the favourable image of the Roman peace is a true one. He chronicles the many rebellions by the conquered, and describes why these broke out and why most failed. At the same time, he explains that hostility was only one reaction to the arrival of Rome, and from the start there was alliance, collaboration and even enthusiasm for joining the invaders, all of which increased as resistance movements faded away. A ground-breaking and comprehensive history of the Roman Peace, Pax Romana takes the reader on a journey from the bloody conquests of an aggressive Republic through the age of Caesar and Augustus to the golden age of peace and prosperity under diligent emperors like Marcus Aurelius, offering a balanced and nuanced reappraisal of life in the Roman Empire.
