SPQR: A HISTORY OF ANCIENT ROMESUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS
PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

SPQR: A HISTORY OF ANCIENT ROME masterfully tells the story of Rome from its inception as a small Italian village to the sprawling empire ruled by the fourteen emperors. From the humble, if not treacherous, beginnings of Romulus to the fall of the Republic with Julius Caesar SPQR goes behind the scenes of the greatest imperial power the ancient world had ever seen.

Rome was a land built on mythical battles taking place in Italy until one leader took the idea of expansion and annexation to another level. As Sicily falls into the hands of the Romans all the way to the fall of Britain, Beard walks the reader through the progression of Roman rule.

Review:

I have always hated history. Not the facts so much as the details that bog it down. I just want to know what I need to know and move on. Especially when doing research. I need info, but I don't have time to slog through everything. This book was like a crash course on historical Rome's change to an Italian village and everything that followed. This novel cover all this highlights of Ancient Rome, Julius Caesar, and the power held by the emperors. I particular;y found the beliefs of the people during this time most interesting--the things they fought over. Really, you could say there are some parallels to the modern day. Fascinating chunk of history, easy to read and absorb. Got everything I need for my research into this subject!  - Hungry for Books (Top 500 Amazon Reviewer)
