4.0 out of 5 stars Caveat emptor... a bit, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very neat and tidy little volume which is a mine of curious and intriguing tidbits from the ancient empire that was Rome. They are in turns fascinating, funny, Flavian and ferocious.

I noticed at least two errors though:

1. Tiberius did not become emperor on his return from his `exile' in Rhodes... by a long chalk.

And...

2. A picture purporting to show a slave being flogged is actually schoolboy discipline Roman-style.

OK, Matyszak, I enjoyed the book so you can have the `flogged slave' but poor old Tiberius has had enough bad press without you putting the caliga in as well.

Valete!

Inside Nazi Germany: Conformity, Opposition and Racism in Everyday Life
by Detler J.K. Peukert
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Modernity Unmasked, 20 Mar. 2012
From the Marxist theory of fascism to the Edelweiss Pirates, this book 'atomises' Nazi Germany and provides a lucid commentary for an argument against fascism in the face of the banality of everyday modern life.
