Book Description

The history of Roman civilization is a long affair, stretching well over a thousand years. During this millennium, Rome’s political constitution evolved dramatically as well. Its expanding borders and burgeoning strength pushed Rome to continually organize and reorganize itself, from a kingdom, to a republic--ultimately to an empire. But the city’s humble origins could never have heralded Rome’s destiny. What began as a simple village atop seven Italian hills would come to span most of the known western world.

Justin Ascott introduces the birth of Rome in a way that's readable and enlightening. The book covers the history of Rome from it's birth all the way to the fall of the Roman Empire.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick and accurate review of Roman history December 23, 2013
By Caninus
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Learn Roman History NOW! A Newbie History Buff's Guide to Roman History! goes from founding to fall in a few chapters. It is a quick and easy read that leaves the reader feeling they have learned the basics and craving more detail. This book is an excellent starting point for anyone interested in ancient Rome with prior background in the subject. It is also a good refresher for those who have been out of school a while and who want to learn more about Roman history. While some may consider the lack of footnotes, references or bibliography a major flaw, this flaw is perhaps the largest contribution towards the book's readability. Without the distraction and detail of outside references the book keeps the reader's attention and focus. There are enough details that anyone with a web browser can find solid reference material and original sources quickly. I highly recommend this book for students and anyone with a passing interest in Roman history with no prior coursework in the subject.
