  • Essential reading for the student of Roman history

    Initially a tough slog as the translated grammar of the time is quite different from today’s and Livy’s attention to Roman governance detail can be burdensome but it is necessary to understand as large personalities forged the Roman empire. This is an essential book to read to get an understanding of republican Rome. The frequency of wars between so called states is more understandable when you realize that the state/nations were merely cities or towns with sometimes different languages and cultures. To survive it became a “dog eat dog” business and the republican governance structure of the Romans served them well. The story of Hannibal and his hatred of Rome is also fascinating and illuminating. I wish that more of Livy’s writings had survived.

    Thanks for your feedback!
