Brilliant 8. Oktober 2013
Von Nox Helios - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I hope Dexter reads these reviews, for I would like to sincerely thank him for writing this outstanding book.

Having a deep interest in the subject matter, I have read the Polybius and the Livy, Daily Life in Carthage by Charles-Picard, Carthage Must Be Destroyed by Richard Miles, The Punic Wars by Adrian Goldsworthy, and various books on the major actors of the era. This book I would select above them all for any person who wants to know what can be known about Carthage. Modest in size, Dexter's brilliant outline and economical yet powerful prose give the reader an intense amount of valuable information, and that with style and self-effacing grace.

I have read this work last of all of the books listed above, and the fact that I feel now that I have learned much more than what I knew before may be helpful to those seeking to maximize their time by selecting only a single book. They are all wonderful books. Perhaps The Carthaginians may be a more up to date volume to replace Daily Life in Carthage.

The hardcover edition itself is excellent. Very high quality in every detail. I thank the publishers as well for giving a great book a great edition.

I am no historian, just a fan of them and of history, and if you are as well then this book will be a friend to you and to scholars alike. I enthusiastically give it the highest rating.

Detailed Portrait of an Ancient Civilization 23. Dezember 2013
Von Robin E. Levin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The Carthaginians is the most thoroughly researched and comprehensive book I have read about the Carthaginian civilization and its history. Dexter Hoyos draws upon both archeology and ancient writings to produce as complete a portrait of ancient Carthage and it's sphere of influence as possible, and in so doing he dispels or brings into question a number of the myths and misconception that modern students of history have about Carthage.
For example, there is a belief, based on recent archeology that the Carthaginians built up their circular inner harbor well after the Second Punic War in preparation for renewed hostilities with Rome. Hoyos believes that the inner harbor was actually constructed during the Second Punic War “As noted earlier, archeological work on Carthage's circular port has turned up very few items datable before the mid 2nd century; but rather than showing that she was now rebuilding a navy and so breaking peace terms, this suggests that the port had substantial work done on it then. The likeliest reason for the overhaul would be that merchant shipping had outgrown the capacity of the outer commercial port. The reported claim by Roman envoys to Carthage in 153, that they had seen quantities of wood stored for building a war fleet may misrepresent this project; similarly Masinissa's son Gulussa's allegation to the Roman Senate in 151 that the Carthaginians were evilly scheming a fleet-a claim he had already wrongly made over twenty years earlier. The senate, it is worth noting, treated all these assertions with remarkable sang-froid, probably aware that there were no such plans.”
Hoyos gives a thorough account of Carthaginian religion, gods both native and borrowed. On the question of whether or not the Carthaginians practiced child sacrifice, he declines to give a firm yes or no answer. He presents evidence, but seems to think that it is contradictory and inconclusive. Perhaps if your standard of evidence is “beyond a reasonable doubt,” you cannot say for certain that the Carthaginians followed this practice, but if your standard is “The preponderance of evidence,” one may conclude that, in all likelihood, they did.
As for the common myth that the Romans salted the ruins of Carthage and environs, Hoyos says: “Rome's new despots Caesar and then Augustus ignored Scipio's (Scipio Minor) curse to found a city which, like the rest of North Africa, would flourish far into the future. (They did not, incidentally, need to scrape away any salt: it was not Scipio in 146 BC but a historian in 1928 who scattered that all over the ruins.)
The Carthaginians is a valuable source for anyone interested in learning more about the substantial role that Carthage played in western history.

A must-have! 30. Dezember 2013
Von N. Perz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
How sad this is only available as a Kindle download. If you can ever find a print-copy, then buy it. Dexter Hoyos is a must-have for any serious (or casual, for that matter) student of Carthage. It's a short book but packed full of treasures. It is so nice to find material about Carthage that goes beyond the scope of Hannibal and the Punic Wars.


I see now that used print copies are available at reasonable prices. Snag one while you can. This is a great resource to have if you have any interest in Carthage.

An excellent work in classics 10. Mai 2013
Von Andrew - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book provides a clear explanation of Carthaginian history, including much archaeological and narrative evidence for the author's points. I used this piece, at the recommendation of a professor, in writing a research paper for a college course and it served me well. Dexter Hoyos is a gifted author writing about an interesting subject. This is an excellent work for academic purposes, and it is quite good for leisure as well.
A Can't Miss.. 18. August 2015
Von David Preslicka - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is not only the best book (in my opinion) available on Carthage, it is my favorite book on my entire bookshelf. Other reviewers went into great detail about the book so I will just say the following. It provides the most comprehensive description of Carthaginian government, religion, trade, society, etc. that can be found. I have read other books on the subject including one of my past favorites (Carthage Must be Destroyed) and this book puts it to shame. It is well researched, well written, and concise (only about 225 pages). I recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn more about the amazing civilization of Carthage. If I could give it more stars I would. It is worth every cent of the seemingly high price attached to it. Dexter is to be commended.
