The story of Rome is one of the great tales of human history. This superbly illustrated book offers an insight into the rise of Rome, which, for six centuries, ruled almost the whole known world. Over 1500 years after Rome's final decline and fall, this detailed examination of the people, places and events of this military and political empire will continue to fascinate. Readers can examine the legacy of Rome - the legal system it established, the military tactics it developed, the one church it promoted and its ideal of a universal empire that offered peace and stability to all its inhabitants and yet which finally itself crumbled through a combination of excess, decadence, hubris and over-ambition.
