War, Peace and Conquest in the Roman WorldAudiobook CD - 2016
Adrian Goldsworthy examines how the Romans came to control so much of the world and asks whether traditionally favorable images of the Roman peace are true. He vividly recounts the rebellions of the conquered, examines why they broke out, why most failed, and how they became exceeding 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.
