Über diesen Titel
Although the accession of Augustus Caesar in 27 B.C. marked the beginning of what came to be called the Roman Empire, it was not the beginning of the Roman nation. This informative anthology traces he rise of Rome from its infancy through the early Roman Republic, its overseas expansion in the Punic Wars, and its conquest of the Greeks.Review:
"There's a lot of material packed in here, but the brief annotation and summary of each article will help students decide where they want to start their research or reading. An appendix of primary source documents brings in the voices of the time."

"We can learn much from history and Greenhaven Press has a book series that brings history alive for students and educators. The Turning Points in World History series offers a vivid and eclectic view of major events in world history using thought, analyses, and conclusions of scholars and historians who contribute essays of revelation, connection, and provocation."

-- Booklist (January 1999) (Booklist 19990101)
"The editors continue the Greenhaven Press tradition if carefully selecting and presenting material that will help students understand the essentials on any given topic - here Turning Points in World History. These books will be especially helpful where library collections don't cover these events thoroughly, because each presents a wealth of information, presented by a wide variety of notable historians and/or reporters. Each book is an invaluable introduction to the complexities of each of the subjects discussed."
