KINDLE Ü A Very Short Introduction µ Christopher Kelly

Their vast empire This Very Short Introduction examines how they romanised the cultures they conuered imposing their own culture in order to subsume them completely The book also looks at how the Roman Empire has been considered and depicted in recent times from the writings of Edward Gibbon to the Hollywood blockbuster Gladiator It will prove a valuable introduction for readers interested in classical histo The opening chapter is good as is the one about Christians being thrown to the lions Treating Christians like criminals missed the central point of Christianity It obscured its fundamental reliance on language on the scriptures on the Word 94 But the other discussions are either too tangential or esoteric in subject matter This really isn't an introduction to the Roman Empire as much as seven topics that the author finds interesting Out of the seven I enjoyed threeThere's no real narrative of how the empire became as such or how it fell or survived in the eastBy the way this series from Oxford UP is a great idea but the writing always seems a shade too academic
