Description


The Political and Strategic History of the World, Vol I: From Antiquity to the Caesars, 14 A.D. covers great swathes of time beginning with the earliest written records of the Hebrews, Sumerians, Babylonians, Egyptians, and the ancient East, through the rise of the Greeks and Persians, the conquests of Alexander the Great, and then the rise of Rome, culminating in the Augustan Empire. The great men and women of the ancient world are portrayed with admiration (or opprobrium) and always with a dash of humor and the perspective that only someone as widely read and deeply learned as Lord Black can deliver. This is a landmark history which will stand together with Gibbon, Mommsen, Prescott, and Churchill among the greatest histories of the world ever written.
