Summary

Take a fascinating and provocative look at the Romans and their empire

How did a rather obscure settlement spread over a few hills on the banks of the Tiber come to dominate the lives of 65 million people? What drove this relentless desire to conquer? How did Rome manage to maintain direct rule over such a vast area, from present-day Scotland to Syria? In The Romans: All That Matters, author John Manley focuses on some of the fundamental aspects of the Roman Empire, especially those topics that have relevance beyond the study of antiquity itself. This clear, concise book is a fascinating introduction to the Romans and what mattered most about them.
