Continuing his explorations of life in the Roman provinces, Paul MacKendrick surveys the rich and varied culture that spread from the eastern borders of modern Libya to the Atlantic. He focuses on the ascent of Roman hegemony in the African world, beginning with the romantic and sanguinary rise and fall of Punic Carthage, Rome's ancient enemy, and lasting through centuries of imperial rule until the Vandal invasion of Africa and the decline of the empire.
