✏SPQR Book Summary : Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller Shortlisted for a British Book Industry Book of the Year Award 2016 The new series Ultimate Rome: Empire Without Limit is on BBC2 now Ancient Rome matters. Its history of empire, conquest, cruelty and excess is something against which we still judge ourselves. Its myths and stories - from Romulus and Remus to the Rape of Lucretia - still strike a chord with us. And its debates about citizenship, security and the rights of the individual still influence our own debates on civil liberty today. SPQR is a new look at Roman history from one of the world's foremost classicists. It explores not only how Rome grew from an insignificant village in central Italy to a power that controlled territory from Spain to Syria, but also how the Romans thought about themselves and their achievements, and why they are still important to us. Covering 1,000 years of history, and casting fresh light on the basics of Roman culture from slavery to running water, as well as exploring democracy, migration, religious controversy, social mobility and exploitation in the larger context of the empire, this is a definitive history of ancient Rome. SPQR is the Romans' own abbreviation for their state: Senatus Populusque Romanus, 'the Senate and People of Rome'.

SPQR: A HISTORY OF ANCIENT ROME masterfully tells the story of Rome from its inception as a small Italian village to the sprawling empire ruled by the fourteen emperors. From the humble, if not treacherous, beginnings of Romulus to the fall of the Republic with Julius Caesar SPQR goes behind the scenes of the greatest imperial power the ancient world had ever seen. Rome was a land built on mythical battles taking place in Italy until one leader took the idea of expansion and annexation to another level. As Sicily falls into the hands of the Romans all the way to the fall of Britain, Beard walks the reader through the progression of Roman rule.

✏Women Power Book Summary : An updated edition of the Sunday Times Bestseller Britain's best-known classicist Mary Beard, is also a committed and vocal feminist. With wry wit, she revisits the gender agenda and shows how history has treated powerful women. Her examples range from the classical world to the modern day, from Medusa and Athena to Theresa May and Hillary Clinton. Beard explores the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, considering the public voice of women, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template. A year on since the advent of #metoo, Beard looks at how the discussions have moved on during this time, and how that intersects with issues of rape and consent, and the stories men tell themselves to support their actions. In trademark Beardian style, using examples ancient and modern, Beard argues, 'it's time for change - and now!' From the author of international bestseller SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome.

Decius Caecilius Metellus has, through a series of rather wild adventure, and in the act of tracking down killers and other reprobates, barely escaped annhilation several times. Now, newly elected to the office of aedile, the lowest rung on the ladder of Roman authority, he must smoke out corruption and conspiracy that threaten to destroy all of Rome.

✏Ancient Rome Book Summary : Fifteen centuries after its fall, the Roman Empire still has the power to fascinate. The crumbling ruins and rutted roads in the lands where its mighty empire once held sway are testament to the vast scope of its greatness and a reminder of the mortality of glory. When the first edition of the Horizon Book of Ancient Rome appeared in 1966, it set the standard as an introduction to this great empire, and today, it continues to be a magnificent guidebook to a civilization that had endured for more than a thousand years and left to us a bequest both timeless and dynamic. Since the book's publication, there have been exciting discoveries and fresh interpretations that have deepened our understanding of the Roman world. Numerous archaeological excavations have found evidence of Roman architecture and communities throughout the Mediterranean and have revealed such precious jewels as the Vindolanda Tablets (a marvelous collection of private letters from Roman soldiers stationed at the Empire's lonely outpost in northern England). Increasingly sophisticated techniques in excavation have revealed entire Roman cities in northern Africa, and in the heart of Rome itself, the great Imperial markets have been unearthed and reconstructed. The Emperor Nero's palace, the Domus Aurea, also has been meticulously restored and opened to the public for the first time since the fall of Rome. Roman coin discoveries (the Hoxne Hoard being only one) and their display on dozens of accessible Internet sites have made it as easy to own and study a genuine piece of Roman history as it was formerly to read about it. ROBERT PAYNE has written many highly praised and popular books on historical topics, including The Gold of Troy, Alexander the God, The Roman Triumph, and The Isles of Greece. RORY O'NEILL and EDEN GREIG MUIR, both professors at the Graduate School of Architecture at Columbia University, are the founders of Cybersites, Inc., a New York city-based developer of interactive online communities. They also developed S.P.Q.R., a CD-ROM game set in ancient Rome, from which the computer-generated images included in this book have been selected. BERNARD FISHER, Ph.D., Fellow, American Academy in Rome; Professor of Classics at UCLA, and VASILY RUDICH, Ph.D., a Blegen Research Fellow and Visiting Professor of Classics at Vassar College, were historical and archaeological consultants on these images.
