From Our Editors

Livy saw Rome’s magnificent early history both as a model and as a warning to his own immoral age. Rome faced a number of Eastern challenges after Hannibal’s critical defeat in the Second Punic War from 218-201 BC and emerged as a Mediterranean master in 167 BC. With brilliant historical imagination, Livy turns sparse, often errone...

From Our Editors

Livy saw Rome’s magnificent early history both as a model and as a warning to his own immoral age. Rome faced a number of Eastern challenges after Hannibal’s critical defeat in the Second Punic War from 218-201 BC and emerged as a Mediterranean master in 167 BC. With brilliant historical imagination, Livy turns sparse, often erroneous sources into a compelling, colourful and dramatic narrative with fascinating personalities and superb rhetoric. World leadership passed from Greece to Rome with triumphs over Alexander the Great’s heirs in the Macedonian wars. Livy reveals the heroic, yet human men who shaped history in Rome and the Mediterranean.
