Three men, three vows: one to destroy Rome, another to protect it, a third to defeat the both of them. This is the saga of Scipio Africanus, one of history's greatest generals, and his history defining clash with Hannibal the Great and Cato the Elder. Born into a wealthy and powerful military family, Cornelius Scipio is a brilliant scholar who dreams of educating the common people of Rome. But he has promised his father he will become a soldier and defend Rome against Hannibal, its sworn enemy. Young Scipio soon finds himself fighting on two fronts: in Italia against the Carthaginians and in the Rome against Cato the Elder's austerity party. When all the veteran commanders fear to confront Hannibal and his brothers, Scipio steps forward to become Rome's boy general. Leaving his mother and betrothed to wage his political war at home, he sets forth to defeat the undefeated, relying on visionary genius to compensate for an outnumbered army of raw recruits. This is the first book in the Scipio Africanus Trilogy, based on his exploits during the Second Punic War. The second book, The Three Generals, will be out in mid-2014.

210 BCE. The Roman Republic battles the empire of Carthage for control of the Mediterranean. Mago, Gisgo, and Hasdrubal hold Iberia and its riches firmly within their grip, preparing to send Hannibal the Great enough resources to destroy Rome forever. As the course of western civilization hangs in the balance, young Scipio sails to Iberia with a raw and undermanned army, undertaking a mission no other general would assume: to wrest control of Iberia from the Three Generals, the men who killed his father and uncle.

Three narratives, set in the fifth, fourteenth, and twentieth centuries, all revolving around an ancient text and each with a love story at its centre, are the elements of this brilliantly ingenious novel, a follow-up to the international bestseller An Instance of the Fingerpost. Now Ian Pears returns with a greatly anticipated novel, so expertly imagined and perfectly constructed the author himself describes it as “a complexity.” The centuries are the 5th (the final days of the Roman Empire); the 14th (the years of the Plague — the Black Death); and the 20th (World War II). The setting for each is the same — Provence — and each has at its heart a love story. The narratives intertwine seamlessly, and what joins them thematically is an ancient text — “The Dream of Scipio” — a work of neo-Platonism that poses timeless philosophical questions. What is the obligation of the individual in a society under siege? What is the role of learning when civilization itself is threatened, whether by acts of man or nature? Does virtue lie more in engagement or in neutrality? “Power without wisdom is tyranny; wisdom without power is pointless,” warns one of Pears’s characters. The Dream of Scipio is a bona fide novel of ideas, a dazzling feat of storytelling, fiction for our times. From the Trade Paperback edition.
