Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller Shortlisted for a British Book Industry Book of the Year Award 2016 The new series Ultimate Rome: Empire Without Limit is on BBC2 now Ancient Rome matters. Its history of empire, conquest, cruelty and excess is something against which we still judge ourselves. Its myths and stories - from Romulus and Remus to the Rape of Lucretia - still strike a chord with us. And its debates about citizenship, security and the rights of the individual still influence our own debates on civil liberty today. SPQR is a new look at Roman history from one of the world's foremost classicists. It explores not only how Rome grew from an insignificant village in central Italy to a power that controlled territory from Spain to Syria, but also how the Romans thought about themselves and their achievements, and why they are still important to us. Covering 1,000 years of history, and casting fresh light on the basics of Roman culture from slavery to running water, as well as exploring democracy, migration, religious controversy, social mobility and exploitation in the larger context of the empire, this is a definitive history of ancient Rome. SPQR is the Romans' own abbreviation for their state: Senatus Populusque Romanus, 'the Senate and People of Rome'.

SPQR: A HISTORY OF ANCIENT ROME - SUMMARY & 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.

An updated edition of the Sunday Times Bestseller Britain's best-known classicist Mary Beard, is also a committed and vocal feminist. With wry wit, she revisits the gender agenda and shows how history has treated powerful women. Her examples range from the classical world to the modern day, from Medusa and Athena to Theresa May and Hillary Clinton. Beard explores the cultural underpinnings of misogyny, considering the public voice of women, our cultural assumptions about women's relationship with power, and how powerful women resist being packaged into a male template. A year on since the advent of #metoo, Beard looks at how the discussions have moved on during this time, and how that intersects with issues of rape and consent, and the stories men tell themselves to support their actions. In trademark Beardian style, using examples ancient and modern, Beard argues, 'it's time for change - and now!' From the author of international bestseller SPQR: A History of Ancient Rome.

Humanity has set off for the stars, and under the auspices of the Terran Hegemony, humans have established a gigantic intergalactic system composed of varying factions. One of these is the Roman Republic, founded by a group of former soldiers, police forces and mercenaries who vowed to never again stick their necks out for those unworthy of their sacrifice. They set up a nation based on mutual defense and chose the family as the foundational element of their society. However, after almost three hundred years, the Hegemony shows all the signs of having overshot its zenith. Its citizens feel unsettled due to its mismanagement, bureaucracy, weak leadership, and inadequate vision. Under the leadership of Rome and its First Consul Julius Maximilianus, a group of like-minded nations form an alliance: a confederation of separatists who wish to take their fates into their own hands. Without the Terran Hegemony’s paternalistic regulations. And so the nations unite under the banner of the Alliance, demanding to have returned to them what they view as their inheritance, their natural right. For this, they had once set out for the stars and are now willing to take up arms: their right to independence! However, as is so often the case, it is soon obvious that the common goal is not necessarily based on a shared spirit and ideals... SPQR is Germany’s most successful military sci-fi series, using as its springing-off point the logical extension of today’s questionable policies and extrapolating a critique of them in the distant future. The SPQR series has been published in seven volumes to date, and it has been widely discussed and touted as a successful combination of military sci-fi and political thriller. SPQR: Imperium is now available in English, and the story will be continued in SPQR: The Flame of Freedom.
