Book Summary:

Explore the Captivating History of the Roman Republic When we think of ancient Rome, the first notion that comes to mind is the one of the empire, followed by the image of a mighty emperor, his legions, colossal buildings, and the Gladiators (or the rhetoric and poetry, depending on your preferences). Some may recall the image of a "unified" Europe under a single sovereign - the emperor of Rome. However, Rome did not become remarkable at this considerably late phase. In fact, many historians see the history of Rome under the Emperors as a long, gradual decline. It was during the Republic that Rome gained an empire. Most of the achievements that the first emperor of Rome, Octavian Augustus, claimed to have completed were, in fact, earned during the Roman Republic. In this book, we'll have a close look at the beginning of Roman civilization, the foundation of the city and the Senate, the expansion of the Roman Republic, its glory, and its end. Some of the topics covered in this book include: The Past that Made It Possible: The Foundation of Rome between Myth and History Down with the Kings: The Past that Made It Happen Early Republic Military Achievements of Early Republic: Taking Italy Middle Republic: The Punic Wars and Mediterranean Dominance The Military vs. Cultural Dominance: The Roman Civilization meets the Greek World Limitless Power and the Beginning of the End: The Late Republic The Age of the Generals: Pompeius, Crassus, and Caesar Senatus Populus-Que Romanus (SPQR) and Its Downfall The Rise and Fall of Julius Caesar and the End of the Roman Republic And a Great Deal More You Don't Want to Miss Out On!

Book Summary:

Arguably the greatest Empire to ever exist, Rome has indelibly left a significant mark on the modern world. The posthumous influence of the Roman Republic and Empire have no equal in all of history. Their varied culture, stunning art, brilliant philosophy, and towering architecture is embedded in our modern world. Roman innovation has left behind a legacy that has remained admired and emulated for over a thousand years. They built massive networks of roads before the birth of Christ. They constructed elaborate public sewer systems over 1,500 years before the United States became a Nation, and had networks of aqueducts bringing running water. Their tactics in battle are still studied by historians and military leaders of today. Their history is filled with great conflicts, compelling love stories, and the most treacherous of leaders. Hollywood has explored their culture time and again on the silver screen. Larger than life commanders like Julius Caesar would help shape their ultimate destiny. In his book entitled The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire: Life, Liberty, and the Death of the Republic author Barry Linton highlights and explains the significant struggles and contributions that have made Rome so well known. Join us as we explore the meteoric rise, monumental life, inevitable death, and eventual rebirth of Rome.

Book Summary:

Excerpt from The Fall of the Roman Republic: A Short History of the Last Century of the Commonwealth I have already written at length, for students of antiquity, the annals of the generation which preceded the battle of Actium, as an introduction to the larger work which I still venture to contemplate on the history and constitution of the Roman Empire. But the wish to present in one view the whole cycle of revolutions which overthrew the noblest republic of the ancient world, has induced me to condense the history of an hundred years in a single volume, adapted in its form and character to the instruction of a more general class of readers. My object has been to present a rapid narrative of events, so grouped and shaded, if I may so express myself, as to fix a permanent impression upon the mind, leaving minute details to be examined in the original authorities, which alone can generally impart interest to them, and dispensing for the most part with the disquisitions on manners and institutions, which if carried out to any profitable extent would grievously encumber these slender pages.

The rise and fall of the Roman Republic occupies a special place in the history of Western civilization.

Gwynn provides a fascinating introduction to the history of the Roman Republic and its literary and material sources, bringing to life the culture and society of Republican Rome and its ongoing significance within our modern world.
