Pax: War and Peace in Rome's Golden Age

The Global Stage

From the historian and co-presenter of the podcast The Rest is History comes the story of antiquity's ultimate superpower at the pinnacle of its greatness. The Roman Empire once stretched from Scotland to Arabia, the wealthiest and most formidable state the world had seen. Beginning in 69 AD, a year that saw four Caesars in succession rule the empire, and ending some seven decades later with the death of Hadrian, Pax covers the destruction of Jerusalem and Pompeii, the building of the Colosseum and Hadrian's Wall, and the conquests of Trajan, vividly sketching the lives of Romans from slaves to emperors. This is the last of the trilogy that began with Rubicon and continued with Dynasty.
