Titel: Roman Spain. Conquest and Assimilation.
Routledge, London / New York, 1991. 1st ed. IX,250p. Original black cloth with dust wrps. Nice copy. ?The author asks how Iberia came to be part of the Roman Empire, and how did its ?diverse inhabitants fit into the uniform mould of Roman life? (?) The strength of this book lies in C.?s use of the rich epigraphic data, especially in dealing with religion and society in attempting to define what war different about Rome?s Spanish provinces. In this context, the chapter on Resistance to Romanisation usefully discusses some of the evidence for the survival of pre-Roman traditions into the Roman period, particularly in the Celtic areas of central and north-western Tarraconensis.? (S. KEAY in Britannia, 1993, p.332). Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 44112
Inhaltsangabe: Spain in Roman times bristled with danger. The parched landscape of the Spanish interior was often as deadly as the Celts and the Iberians, people famed for their ferocity and accustomed to grisly human sacrifice. Little wonder that it took Roman armies more than two centuries to subdue the Iberian peninsula. In "Roman Spain" , Leonard Curchin traces the history of the Iberian peninsula from the fabled kingdom of Tartesos to the triumph of Christianity. As well as the arduous period of conquest, he chronicles Spain's slow assimilation into the Roman Empire, showing how its recalcitrant indigenous peoples and cultures were gradually transformed into a Latin-speaking provincial society. He examines the evolution of Hispano-Roman cults, the integration of Spain into the Roman economy, and cultural "resistance" to romanization, and marshals recent archaeological evidence to survey the chief cities of the Roman administration as well as conditions in the countryside. Special emphasis is placed on social relationships: soldier and civilian, the emperor and the provincials, patrons and clients, the upper and lower classes, women and the family. This book should be of interest to students and teachers in classical studies, archaeology and history.
