Best-selling author Adrian Goldsworthy turns his attention to the Pax Romana, the famous peace and prosperity brought by the Roman Empire at its height in the first and second centuries AD. Yet the Romans were conquerors, imperialists who took by force a vast empire stretching from the Euphrates to the Atlantic coast. Ruthless, Romans won peace not through coexistence but through dominance; millions died and were enslaved during the creation of their empire. Pax Romana examines how the Romans came to control so much of the world and asks whether traditionally favorable images of the Roman peace are true. Goldsworthy vividly recounts the rebellions of the conquered, examining why they broke out, why most failed, and how they became exceedingly rare. He reveals that hostility was just one reaction to the arrival of Rome and that from the outset, conquered peoples collaborated, formed alliances, and joined invaders, causing resistance movements to fade away.… (més)

My kind of history book. Discussing the history of Romans running their empire in the context of their relationships with conquered people. Well structured, no pointless dates or minutiae.

The one annoying bit are the constant apologies on behalf of Romans and people in the past in general. Why does the author have to explain that violence is bad and he doesn't condone it? It's really sad that historians nowadays have to so afraid writing books about history. Being a historian in the west today is almost like being a historian in China. You have to be very careful writing about the past. Especially about the facts - these are most dangerous. ( )

As always, a thorough and well researched study of ancient Rome. I personally did not find the topic as compelling as certain prior works, such as the biography of Caesar (in fairness few subjects match Caesar for interest level) - nonetheless this was a highly informative analysis of a topic rarely studied.

Given the nature of the subject, this work covers a huge swath of time, spanning from the end of the republic until the latter imperial era. Nonetheless, the author does his best to keep the narrative flowing by incorporating many concepts and supporting examples throughout the centuries.

Mr. Goldsworthy always presents his material objectively, devoid of ideology or personal bias. I recommend this book both novices and those with a firm background in the Republican or Imperial periods. ( )

"An engrossing account of how the Roman Empire grew and operated."
afegit per bookfitz | editaKirkus Reviews (Aug 1, 2016)
 
"In the introduction to this engaging and consistently informative assessment of the methods the ancient Romans used to expand and control their empire, Goldsworthy insists that he is not trying to draw lessons that might be useful to contemporary powers."
 
Adrian Goldsworthy’s Pax Romana represents a broad and reputable survey of the history of the Roman peace from roughly 150 BC to AD 235, with pax here seen not as a blissful moment of non-violence, but rather as a state of control established and continuously enforced by organized coercive force. It is worth highlighting at the start a few pitfalls into which such a work could easily descend. It could devolve into a ‘guts and glory’ military history narrating Rome’s conquests and imperial wars, with purple passages describing gladii carving through various aspects of human anatomy. The dust jacket provided by the press, featuring a handsome Imperial helmet, certainly seeks to appeal to those book buyers with a taste for old-school military history.

PREFACE
Pax Romana is one of those Latin expressions that journalists and cartoonists still expect their readers to understand without the need for translation, alongside tags such as mea culpa and Shakespeare's 'et tu Brute'.
