5.0 von 5 Sternen The rise of Rome as you have never read it before 1. September 2014
Von Dr. Dayle Smith LL.M, PhD. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It is quite rare that one finds a series of books written by an author 2000 years ago that reach backwards into the story of how a small village/town by the name of Latium and then proceeded to grow, admitedly in fits and starts, into the only real superpower of its age in Europe.
Although the title of the work referred to makes it sound as if the complete works of Livy are contained in the volume, in truth there are missing parts, the usual later additions, transcription errors, small historical and factual errors, but none the less the works we have available to us a wealth of material that appears to comrise the vast bulk of his work, Ab Urbe Condita. This work is, and can only realistically be read as, a mixture of fact and hearsay as must any work whose starting point is about 753 BCE, when Livy was born around 700 years after the putative date given for the foundation of Rome. Any contemporary history book is very likely to contain a great deal of data about these issues, but put the detail of them to one side.
There will then lie before you the same kind of material available to Julius Caesar, to Octavian and Tiberious Caesar as successors to Julius Caesar. With Livys version of the Carthaginian Wars we may quarrel, in some small parts, but the broad sweep of his history is much better read as he wrote it.
Yes, some later historians have been able to pick holes in little bits of it but his structure, order and apparent lack of much of the political bias suurrounding the end of the Roman Republic in fact, if not in theory, by Augustus, in its majesty, eloquence and constant attention to detail, where such matters lay within his own comprehension (as opposed to parts written by some writers now unknown to us) will give to a reader with some time at his disposal, a unique view from a near contemporay of Julius Caesar, an account of how the small village and later town/city-state of Romae came to posess the power unleashed by the Scipio's on Carthage, Julius Caesar in Spain and Gaul, Augustus and later Tiberias Caesar.
I know of no other work in the area of Roman history that contains as much detailed material of interest to avid readers of Roman history, including those many writers of historical fiction on the period of the Caesars up to a youngish Emperor Tiberias.
I know of no better book for a budding historian to read than this one. Yes, there are grave doubts about some of the assertions of facts concerning Romulus and Remus and the like, but such trifles are of no real consequence in reading this ancient yet magisterial series of books that at least will give a contemporary reader a real understanding of the latin word 'gravitas' as used to describe men such as Fabious Cuncator, (remember Carthage?) Marius, Sulla and hundreds of other Romans now well known to history buffs.
