Hadrian and the Triumph of Rome | [Anthony Everitt]

Hadrian and the Triumph of Rome

Beginning with the founding myths of Romulus and Remus and a succession of probably fictitious kings, Anthony Everitt charts the development of Rome from its origins as a small market town in the eighth century BC, through various forms of patrician government, up to Caesar's victory in the Civil War that defeated the Roman Republic and paved the way for Augustus to transform republican oligarchy into imperial autocracy.

Publisher's Summary

Beginning with the founding myths of Romulus and Remus and a succession of probably fictitious kings, Anthony Everitt charts the development of Rome from its origins as a small market town in the eighth century BC, through various forms of patrician government, up to Caesar's victory in the Civil War that defeated the Roman Republic and paved the way for Augustus to transform republican oligarchy into imperial autocracy.

Using recent archaeological evidence and historical facts, and a wealth of legend and anecdote, Everitt shows how Rome grew - both internally, via ever more ambitious construction projects, and externally, through successful military campaigns. In doing so, he highlights some fascinating parallels between ancient Roman society and the modern world.

As accessible as it is authoritative and scholarly, The Rise of Rome is the perfect introduction to Roman history and civilization.

    Any additional comments?

    For any follower of ancient history and Rome's gradual change over four centuries this is a very good guide to Hadrian's time rather than Hadrian the man. The history of the time is,of necessity, I suppose, important to context but I was hoping for more about the man himself. A man that didn't like his wife much, not much evidence to suggest that he even liked his young lover, Antinous much either until after his death when it became, politically and personally, a matter to turn his memory into a cult. A man that travelled constantly, we'll read, well educated, erudite, erratic, and probably difficult to be anywhere near was not that much explored. A good listen but a slightly disappointing biography although a better history.
