  • The Trial of Socratesby I.F. Stone

    Head of Zeus 2015; US$ 11.65

    The Athens of Socrates's time has gone down in history as the very place where democracy and freedom of speech were born. Yet this city put Socrates, its most famous philosopher, to death.

  • The Reach of Romeby Derek Williams

    St. Martin's Press 2015; US$ 8.99

    The Roman Empire was one of the most powerful forces in history. However, few people realize that this vast empire was guarded by one frontier, a series of natural and man-made barriers, including Hadrian's Wall. It is impossible to have a true understanding of the Roman Empire without first investigating the scope of this amazing frontier. The boundary... more...

  • Romans and Barbariansby Derek Williams

    St. Martin's Press 2015; US$ 8.99

    Derek williams, long a student of the Roman borderlands, was in due course drawn toward a parallel fascination with the Iron Age tribes that that Rome faced across her frontiers.

  • Lucan und der Prinzipatby Nadja Kimmerle

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 154.00

    Lucan?s Bellum Civile ( Pharsalia ) is traditionally read as a political critique of the Principate. However, several features of this text run counter to this interpretation. This study reexamines Lucan?s work using the model of the unreliable narrator to illuminate its portrayal of contradictory structures in Nero?s Principate. The... more...

  • The Shadow of Creusaby Anders Cullhed; Michael Knight

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 182.00

    Anders Cullhed?s study explores the early Christian confrontation with pagan culture as a remote anticipation of many later clashes between religious orthodoxy and literary fictionality. After a careful survey of Saint Augustine?s long drawn-out farewell to ancient myth and poetry, Cullhed examines other Late Antique dismissals as well... more...

  • Roman Legionary AD 284-337by Ross Cowan; Sean O'Brogain

    Osprey Publishing 2015; US$ 14.95

    Diocletian and Constantine were the greatest of the Late Roman emperors, and their era marks the climax of the legionary system.

The legionaries defeated all-comers... more...
