A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ROMANS BOATWRIGHT PDF

How did a single village community in the Italian peninsula eventually become one of the most powerful imperial powers the world has ever known? Boatwright, Daniel J. Gargola, Richard J. Talbert, and new coauthor Noel Lenski explore this question as they guide students through a comprehensive sweep of Roman history, ranging from the prehistoric settlements to the fall of the empire in Addressing issues that still confront modern states worldwide--including warfare, empire building, consensus forging, and political fragmentation--the authors also provide glimpses into everyday Roman life and perspective, demonstrating how Rome's growth as a state is inseparable from its social and cultural development. Firmly grounded in ancient literary and material sources, the text analyzes major political and military landmarks, from the Punic Wars through Constantine's adoption of Christianity.

Although I did study Latin, I did not read much ancient history. Since Donna Leon's fictional detective is always reading the classics for relaxation, Cicero, Tacitus, Vergil, etc.
