"Matyszak writes clearly and engagingly . . . nicely produced, with ample maps and illustrations." —Classical Outlook

This engrossing book looks at the growth and eventual demise of Rome from the viewpoint of the peoples who fought against it. Here is the reality behind such legends as Spartacus the gladiator, as well as the thrilling tales of Hannibal, the great Boudicca, the rebel leader and Mithridates, the connoisseur of poisons, among many others. Some enemies of Rome were noble heroes and others were murderous villains, but each has a unique and fascinating story. 72 illustrations in black and white

About: An assessment of the rise and fall of the Roman empire, told from the perspectives of the civilizations that were vanquished by Rome, argues that such groups as the Celts, Hebrews, and Phoenicians were civilizations in their own right in spite of beliefs about Roman superiority and examines the impact of leadership ambition, political choices, and rivalry on the empire's downfall.
