9780806132877: Ancient Rome: An Introductory History

The events and personalities of ancient Rome spring to life in this history, from its founding in 753 B.C. to the death of the philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius in A.D. 180.

Paul A. Zoch presents, in contemporary language, the history of Rome and the stories of its protagonists?such as Romulus and Remus, Horatius, and Nero-which are so often omitted from more specialized studies.

With an eye detail, Zoch guides his readers through the military campaigns and political developments that shaped Rome’s rise from a small Italian city to the greatest imperial power the world had ever known. We witness the long struggle against the enemy city of Carthage. We follow Caesar as he campaigns in Britain, and we observe the ebb and flow of Rome’s fortunes in the Hellenistic East. Writing with the belief that such stories contain moral lessons that are relevant today, Zoch presents a narrative that is both entertaining and informative. An afterword takes the history to the fall of the Roman Empire in the West in A.D. 476.

About the Author:

Paul A. Zoch holds a master's degree in classical studies from Indiana University and a bachelor's degree in classics from the University of Texas at Austin. He teaches Latin and English in the Alief Independent school District in Texas. This book is a direct outgrowth of his presentation of ancient Roman history in the classroom.

From Booklist:

Zoch, a high-school teacher of Latin and English, has written a concise, straightforward chronology of Roman history from the mythological founding of Rome to the reign of Marcus Aurelius. He effectively stresses both the political and the moral lessons we can learn from various episodes in Roman history, and he has a knack for breathing life into some of the more mundane topics in the classical period. This is not a work that history buffs will find especially informative, but it will provide the general reader, particularly at the undergraduate level, with a basic knowledge of the key events, personalities, and forces that shaped the republic and the early empire. Jay Freeman
