Description: The new edition of The Story of Ancient Rome is now in color and has been revised and expanded to take account of recent discoveries and contemporary issues of scholarly debate. The history of Rome began in the eighth century B.C. when several clusters of villages on the hills overlooking the Tiber River merged into a single city and established a common meeting place known as the forum. A more colorful account describes how the city of Rome was founded by legendary twin brothers, Romulus and Remus, who were raised by a she-wolf. The Story of Ancient Rome chronicles in colorful detail both the documented history and the legends of the city that arose from humble beginnings to become the center of an immense empire encompassing two million square miles and spanning three continents. Roman civilization lasted a thousand years, and remains an essential part of western culture today. The Story of Ancient Rome traces the history of the mighty Romans from the early days of the Latins - focusing upon the role of the Etruscans who ruled Rome them for several hundred years, the rise and evolution of the republican form of government after the Etruscan kings were overthrown, the causes and strategies of the Punic Wars, the military coups and political ambitions of Julius Caesar, the reign of Augustus and the formation of an imperial bureaucracy , the golden age of peace and prosperity, the reigns of the later emperors, growing threat of the barbarians, and the decline and fall of the empire.
