內容簡介

入圍2015年《紐約時報書評》的100本好書。

引人入勝,通俗易懂的古羅馬歷史,著眼於大事件,也描繪了小細節,將這段歷史生動地展現在讀者眼前。──經濟學人。

S.P.Q.R., (The Senate and People of Rome的縮寫),從西元前8世紀到西元2世紀,古羅馬用了1000多年的時間崛起稱霸歐、亞、非大陸,卻在不到200年的時間裡迅速瓦解衰敗,英國最富盛名的古代羅馬歷史學家,也是暢銷書The Fires of Vesuvius作者Mary Beard編寫而成的精彩全新的編年史,她在書中顛覆了許多關於古羅馬的認識,比如她說克利奧派特拉不可能是把毒蛇放在胸上自殺的:「用蛇咬來自殺是很難完成的技巧,而且最可靠的毒蛇要很健壯,不可能被藏在一個皇家果籃裡。」

作者從事實與虛構,神話和宣傳等各種文獻與資料,進行篩選,呈現許多不為人知,或扭轉普遍性對古羅馬的看法,從極其細緻入微的角度,關注古羅馬帝國長期以來的階級不平等、民主鬥爭,以及大量被人們從歷史的敘述中所忽略的生活,重建古羅馬的興盛與衰亡。全書100幅插圖,5頁地圖,鉅細靡遺,協助讀者從圖片與地理位置,很快理解遙遠古羅馬的真相。

同時受到紐約時報、經濟學人、泰晤士報等三大主流媒體的推薦。

Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller

Ancient Rome matters.

Its history of empire, conquest, cruelty and excess is something against which we still judge ourselves. Its myths and stories - from Romulus and Remus to the Rape of Lucretia - still strike a chord with us. And its debates about citizenship, security and the rights of the individual still influence our own debates on civil liberty today.

SPQR is a new look at Roman history from one of the world's foremost classicists. It explores not only how Rome grew from an insignificant village in central Italy to a power that controlled territory from Spain to Syria, but also how the Romans thought about themselves and their achievements, and why they are still important to us.

Covering 1,000 years of history, and casting fresh light on the basics of Roman culture from slavery to running water, as well as exploring democracy, migration, religious controversy, social mobility and exploitation in the larger context of the empire, this is a definitive history of ancient Rome.

SPQR is the Romans' own abbreviation for their state: Senatus Populusque Romanus, 'the Senate and People of Rome'.
