This is the exciting story of the Roman Empire. It is not intended to be exhaustive (That's for the thousand page textbooks!), but by the time you finish you will know a lot about this ancient empire.

The Roman Empire was perhaps the greatest empire in the history of the world. Beginning with the Emperor Augustus and ending with the coming of Islam, this is the remarkable story of how this ancient empire brought about the longest sustained peace in European history, launched the largest religion in the world and ultimately fell to the peoples that make up Europe and the Middle East today.

It's a story of remarkable creation and terrible destruction. It's a story about brilliant leaders and insane emperors. It's a story about passionate love, unmitigated greed and grand ambition. In the Roman Empire, we see the best and worst that human beings are capable of. In learning about the Romans, we can learn a few things about ourselves.

Simply put, if you are interested in the Roman Empire, then you will love this book!
