The Roman Republic: The Precursor of the Roman Empire
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Roman Republic: The Precursor of the Roman Empire
Among the great ancient civilizations that defined the world in antiquity, none stands out so much to the modern mind as that of the Roman Empire. Vast and mighty, this empire encompassed nearly the entire Mediterranean, much of Europe, northern Africa and large parts of western Asia, all governed from the great city that was ancient Rome. Before the Roman Empire and its great leaders, however, came another phase of Roman history, and one that was just as important to the development and expansion of ancient Rome. This stage of Rome’s long history was the Roman Republic. Emerging from the overthrow of Rome’s early kings in or around 509 BCE, the Roman Republic began when Rome was little more than a powerful city-state within central Italy. As the nearly 500 years of history that the Roman Republic spanned passed, however, the city would emerge as the primary power in Italy, engage Carthage in the Punic Wars, take control of ancient Greece and ultimately become the dominating power of the Mediterranean basin. Meanwhile, Rome would also forge some of the most important political concepts in history, including the idea of the careful distribution of political power, through its republican form of government. The Roman Republic: The Precursor of the Roman Empire traces the history of the Republic from its earliest roots through its gradual expansion into preeminence over the entire Mediterranean and the creation of Rome’s empire. Finally, this short historical work explores the political, societal and military tensions that tore the Roman Republic apart, ushering in the Roman Empire after a long series of civil wars and the assumption of power by ambitious men such as Pompey, Julius Caesar and, eventually, Augustus. In this short but detailed historical work, you will learn about: –The origins of the Roman Republic –Rome’s wars of expansion on the Italian Peninsula –The Punic Wars and the expansion into the western Mediterranean –The wars of conquest in Greece that led ancient Rome to conquer the Greek city-states –The lives and careers of Julius Caesar, Pompey, Crassus, and other men who eventually contributed to the end of the Roman Republic –The civil wars and the establishment of the Roman Empire under Augustus –And much more! This short historical work, though detailed, is written with the average reader without specialized knowledge of historical studies in mind. It also seeks to provide a framework for future learning about the history of the Roman Republic and includes a brief bibliography of recommended further reading for those readers who wish to advance their knowledge of the subject. From its earliest origins to its final days, the Roman Republic represents one of the most fascinating phases of Roman history, and one that no study of history of ancient civilizations can be complete without a knowledge of. Learn about this critical phase in the development of ancient Rome and of the western world as a whole in The Roman Republic: The Precursor of the Roman Empire.
