This magisterial work, to be published in three volumes, is the first full-scale commentary to be written in modern times on this part of Livy's great history of Rome. This second volume consists of Books VII and VIII, in which Livy describes Rome's annexation of Capua and Naples and her first fighting against the Samnites, the powerful tribe that lived in the mountains of central Italy. (The commentary is not accompanied by the Latin text or a translation).
