History of Rome
Scribner's, 1978 - 537 pagine
From a small Iron Age settlement on the banks of the Tiber, Rome grew to become the center of an Empire that dominated the Western world. Powerful in war, Rome was magnificent in peace, so that even today her poets, artists, philosophers and historians exert their influence over Western thought and civilization. Michael Grant, the renowned classical historian, recreates the evolution of this astonishing city and community. He describes the individuals and events that made Rome a political and cultural conqueror, and defines the dramatic circumstances of her eventual decline and fall.- Publisher description.
