From the content areas of American history, European history, and ancient history, readers will marvel at the conflicts, triumphs, struggles, and accomplishments of these key historical figures. Each title in the series includes historical background text, maps, primary source images, a glossary, additional resources, and an index. These titles are sure to be received warmly by students, teachers, and librarians alike. Ancient Rome's hunger for conquest was matched only by its hunger for combat--especially in the form of its brutal gladiator contests. But in 73 BC, Spartacus, a slave and gladiator, led a revolt against the Romans that shook the empire to its root. In time, about 90,000 men--mostly runaway slaves--joined Spartacus's rebellion, waging often-successful--yet ultimately futile--battles against the Roman army. This colorful, dynamic biography will have readers marveling at the life of Spartacus, ancient freedom fighter.
