61 Braund, David RULING ROMAN BRITAIN Kings, Queens, Governors and Emperors from Julius Caesar to Agricola
Routledge 1996 0415008042 / 9780415008044 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Minor shelfwear to DJ else Fine. ; In this book, David Braund offers a significantly different perspective upon the history of Roman Britain. Rather than relying on archaeology, the author concentrates on the literary evidence, drawing a colorful picture of the social and political context of Roman imperialism. The study discusses Roman theories of imperialism as well as the intellectual and political atmosphere within which Caesar mounted his invasions of Britain in 55 and 54 B. C. Braund shows how the ideologies and power structures at work in Rome fundamentally shaped politics and society in Roman Britain. Thus he develops an understanding of the literary sources which goes beyond mere translation and allows the reader insights into this remote corner of the Roman world. ; 0.87 x 8.43 x 5.67 Inches; 217 pages

62 Breed, Brian & Cynthia Damon & Andreola Rossi (Eds. ) CITIZENS OF DISCORD Rome and its Civil Wars
Oxford University Press 2010 0195389573 / 9780195389579 Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ has very light shelfwear. ; Civil wars, more than other wars, sear themselves into the memory of societies that suffer them. This is particularly true at Rome, where in a period of 150 years the Romans fought four epochal wars against themselves. The present volume brings together exciting new perspectives on the subject by an international group of distinguished contributors. The basis of the investigation is broad, encompassing literary texts, documentary texts, and material culture, spanning the Greek and Roman worlds. Attention is devoted not only to Rome's four major conflicts from the period between the 80s BC and AD 69, but the frame extends to engage conflicts both previous and much later, as well as post-classical constructions of the theme of civil war at Rome. Divided into four sections, the first ("Beginnings, Endings") addresses the basic questions of when civil war began in Rome and when it ended. "Cycles" is concerned with civil war as a recurrent phenomenon without end. "Aftermath" focuses on attempts to put civil war in the past, or, conversely, to claim the legacy of past civil wars, for better or worse. Finally, the section "Afterlife" provides views of Rome's civil wars from more distant perspectives, from those found in Augustan lyric and elegy to those in much later post-classical literary responses. As a whole, the collection sheds new light on the ways in which the Roman civil wars were perceived, experienced, and represented across a variety of media and historical periods. ; 352 pages

63 Brewer, Richard, J. (Ed. ) ROMAN FORTRESSES AND THEIR LEGIONS Papers in Honour of George C. Boon, FSA, FRHistS
National Museums and Galleries of Wales/Society of Antiquaries of London 2000 0854312749 / 9780854312740 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Occasional Papers of the Society of Antiquaries of London, No. 20; 208 pages; Roman Fortresses and their Legions had its origins in a conference held in 1992, and contains 11 papers by leading Roman military archaeologists on the fortresses of Roman legions from Britain, Germany and the Danube region to the eastern empire. It will appeal to both general and specialist readers interested in Roman military archaeology. Historians, including the pioneer antiquaries, have long realised that the study of the legions is fundamental to our understanding of the history of the Roman Empire. The essays in this volume, contributed by some of today's foremost scholars of Roman army studies, range across the whole of the Roman Empire - including Britain, the Danube lands and the eastern provinces - and cover a wide variety of themes. Authors effectively combine evidence derived from ancient sources and inscriptions with the rapidly growing amount of information and detail obtained from archaeological excavation. The volume covers the period from Augustus, when the plans of permanent legionary fortresses were beginning to evolve, to the Late Empire, when the legion was a very different body from that with which we are familiar in the early imperial period. The essays are dedicated to the late George C Boon FSA, FRHistS to mark his vast contribution to Roman scholarship.

Upper corners bumped. Minor shelfwear to DJ now in mylar. ; In 480 BC, a huge Persian army, led by the inimitable King Xerxes, entered the mountain pass of Thermopylae as it marched on Greece, intending to conquer the land with little difficulty. But the Greeks? Led by King Leonidas and a small army of Spartans? Took the battle to the Persians at Thermopylae, and halted their advance? Almost. It is one of history’s most acclaimed battles, one of civilization’s greatest last stands. And in Thermopylae, renowned classical historian Paul Cartledge looks anew this history-altering moment and, most impressively, shows how its repercussions have bearing on us even today. The invasion of Europe by Xerxes and his army redefined culture, kingdom, and class. The valiant efforts of a few thousand Greek warriors, facing a huge onrushing Persian army at the narrow pass at Thermopylae, changed the way generations to come would think about combat, courage, and death. ; 313 pages

Very slight crease to top of spine. ; BAR International Series 645; 71 pages; Was the decline of Rome and the fall of the western Empire partly the consequence of declining troop numbers? This is one of the questions which Coello asks. Although there is some documentary evidence for unit sizes in the early period very little is known about the third century and following. Coello examines the evidence for the later period but although some misconceptions are exposed there is little new evidence available to shed any real light.

103 Conwell, David H. CONNECTING A CITY TO THE SEA The History of the Athenian Long Walls
Brill Academic Publishers 2008 9004162321 / 9789004162327 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Unwrapped in Plastic. ; The Long Walls joining Athens with its harbors are universally recognized as symbols of naval imperialism and the lynchpin of a radical departure from traditional Greek military strategy during the later fifth century B. C. Nevertheless, many important questions about the structures remain disputed or simply neglected. As the first comprehensive history of the Long Walls, the present study dates each construction phase, examines the function of the structures from beginning to end, and chronicles their fluctuating viability. The analysis is driven by the proposition that the Athenians would not have relied on the walls to the sea when their navy did not control the sea lanes effectively. This full consideration of the Long Walls' development and strategic prominence over time will enable accurate assessment of their position in Greek military and political history from classical through early Hellenistic times.; History and Archaeology of Classical Antiquity; 0.8 x 9.6 x 6.5 Inches; 267 pages
