  • Invisible Romansby Robert C. Knapp

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 13.31

    Robert Knapp seeks out the ordinary people who formed the fabric of everyday life in ancient Rome and the outlaws and pirates who lay beyond it. They are the housewives, prostitutes, freedmen, slaves, soldiers, and gladiators who lived commonplace lives and left almost no trace in history - until now. But their words are preserved in literature,... more...

  • City of Godby Saint Augustine; G. R. Evans

    Penguin Books Ltd 2003; US$ 23.96

    St Augustine, bishop of Hippo, was one of the central figures in the history of Christianity, and City of God is one of his greatest theological works.

  • The History of Alexanderby Quintus Curtius Rufus; Waldemar Heckel; John Yardley

    Penguin Books Ltd 2005; US$ 14.09

    Alexander the Great (356-323 BC), who led the Macedonian army to victory in Egypt, Syria, Persia and India, was perhaps the most successful conqueror the world has ever seen. Yet although no other individual has attracted so much speculation across the centuries, Alexander himself remains an enigma. Curtius' History offers a great deal of information... more...

    Pen and Sword 2014; US$ 24.95

    The ancient evidence suggests that international commerce supplied Roman government with up to a third of the revenues that sustained their empire.

  • Seneca: Selected Dialogues and Consolationsby Seneca; Peter J. Anderson

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2015; US$ 11.95

    Seneca's dialogues--as his epistolary essays have traditionally been known--offer an ideal path into the philosophical thought of first-century Rome's most famous Stoic, whose compelled suicide in 65 CE (by order of his former pupil Emperor Nero) drew comparisons to the death of Socrates. Notable for, among other things, their portrait of a providential... more...

  • Daodejingby Laozi; Edmund Ryden; Benjamin Penny

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 8.99

    The Daodejing encapsulates the main tenets of Daoism, a philosophy and religion whose dominant image is the Way, a life-giving stream that enables individuals to achieve harmony and a more profound level of understanding. This new translation draws on the latest archaeological finds and brings out the word play and poetry of the original. more...
