Customer Review

on 9 August 2005
Having never before written a review on Amazon, despite a longstanding and often bank manager-baiting relationship with the site, it stands to reason that for me to now do so I must have encountered a special book. Rubicon is superb, a vigourous and scholarly exploration of an era which tends to get lost behind the images of Imperial Rome and the figures who bestrode it with such pomp.
As an honours student in classical civilisation I have always been more bewitched by Ancient Greece than Rome, but this author's wonderful narrative style had me engrossed to the extent that my studies for next year may now have to be rather more polarised than first intended.
An excellent book, the way history should be taught.
