    Remarkable narration of Ancient Rome by Hourly History. It traces the history from its inception to its final downfall as the empire had become too unwieldy. There are fascinating details that are not so well known otherwise like during the Republic and Imperial periods there up to 40 percent of the population in Italy that was enslaved.

    “Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.” Emperor Marcus Aurelius The Eternal City, established by the two sons of Mars, Romulus, and Remus, by the seven hills and split by the Tiber River, will come to be known to the world as Rome; the center of the known world. It is the eighth century BCE and slowly the city would grow, encompassing the seven hills and filled with beautiful marble structures that would be the pride of Rome. “Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.” Emperor Marcus Aurelius The Eternal City, established by the two sons of Mars, Romulus, and Remus, by the seven hills and split by the Tiber River, will come to be known to the world as Rome; the center of the known world. It is the eighth century BCE and slowly the city would grow, encompassing the seven hills and filled with beautiful marble structures that would be the pride of Rome. Rome was unique almost from its inception. As one of the first Republics, many of their laws and institutions survive, even today. Only with the successful rise of Gaius Julius Caesar, was the Republic transformed into an Empire. No story of Rome would be complete without a synopsis of its leaders. A short summary of Julius Caesar and his direct (blood-related) relatives is included and leaves the reader with the thought of whether these people were blessed or cursed with their legacy. There is no doubt that the Roman Empire, with its scores of legions, conquered almost everything they faced, but it is equally true that Rome gave the world much more than it took. This book gives the reader a birds-eye view, from very high in the stratosphere, where distances and time are distorted and details fade into a misty haze. I would be the last to say that the reading of this book, even with all of its shortcomings, would be a futile and wasted effort. It does raise questions and provides some inspiration to seek the answers and learn more about this great civilization that rose from the Italian plains, organized into a great city-state, and proceeded to influence and-or to conquer most of the known world.

    Good book. Just a reminder that this Hourly Edition books are supposed to be a fast resumed book. So don’t be surprised that some details are missing or if has shortcuts along the way. In my perspective is well summarized and I wish I had this books (Sumerians, Greeks etc) back in school to help me understand my history classes. I also think they are well written and easy to understand. Once again this kind of Book did is ultimate goal: to fast deliver a good understanding of Roman history in ab Good book.

    This was one of the first Kindle books I have read with my gift of a used Kindle & the gift of a year of prime. The book was a good solid read. It is basic in many ways & early on does not try & judge history with modern values but, simply sticks to the facts. The author saves most opinion for the conclusion ending which I found refreshing in a day & age when opinions seem held above all else. I short it a star only because th fast skip through some of the lesser rulers during the civil wars.

    This was a good summary of the Roman era from Romulus and Remus to the fall of the empire. Hourly History does a good job of that kind of information. What this book lacks is the global perspective. No idea of what was happening in the rest of the globe to gain insight into the relative quality of the Roman civilization was made available. hourly History has done a better job of this in other books.

    Fantastic This current epoch needs to understand Rome and Roman influences beyond just Latin, science, philosophy, law, irrigation, indoor plumbing, and all the rest. It is the basis of our current civilization. If you don't care for the warts, climate change, capitalism, and inequity!

    A Millennia in an Hour Trying to cover 1,000 years of Roman history in Avery short, easy to read book is a tough undertaking. This is a good introduction to Roman history, readable in an hour. Covering the legend of Rome’s founding to its fall, you get enough to appreciate the scope of Rome and some breadcrumbs to study more.

    I bought this to read during a trip to Italy and Rome. Overall, it helped fill in some gaps in my knowledge. I was happy to have a quick read that gave a broad overview, even though the text was a little lacking in terms of personality.

    Mind thoroughly blown...what a tremendous series, even though I ended up reading it backwards lol...I fell in love with these three ancient civilizations when I was young...I learned more about them through these small volumes than I did in school. Thank you Hourly History. You rock.

    Not for the uninitiated. Assumes some knowledge of the histories of the emperors. Many criticisms of earlier, some ancient, historians’ accounts of events that would be lost on those unfamiliar with at least some knowledge of their works.

    A really difficult subject to cover in what is essentially a long essay. Having taken many history courses, fifty years ago, it was a "review" for me. It would make a good introduction to the Roman Empire for a student just starting to study ancient history. A really difficult subject to cover in what is essentially a long essay.

    Fast and high level The history of Rome could fill volumes. This is a quick and decent overview, touching on all the high points and connecting phrases we use today with the Roman event that created them.
