The Romans in Spain by John Richardson( Book )

31 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces the complex process by which an area, seen initially as a war zone, was gradually transformed into an integral part of the Roman world. The Iberian Peninsula was among the earliest parts of the Mediterranean world outside Italy to be occupied by Roman military forces. The Spanish provinces remained part of the western Roman Empire until its collapse in the fifth century. The Romans in spain examines the roles of the army and its commanders; those who came to exploit the natural resources, the towns and cities which developed and flourished in the Spanish provinces, the imperial cult and the Christian Church, all for their contributions to this process. It sees them not only in local context but as linked inextricably with the varying fortunes of Rome itself and its empire
Augustan Rome 44 BC to AD 14 : the restoration of the Republic and the establishment of the Empire by John Richardson( )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The reign of Augustus, the first of the Roman emperors, has been seen, both by contemporaries and over the centuries that have followed, as a pivotal moment in the history of Rome. The final stage in the move to monarchical government and the structures he put in place, which were to last largely unchanged for over two hundred years, ensured this; but Augustus himself remains an enigmatic figure. J.S. Richardson explores the processes which resulted in such a massive shift, and the often unforeseen events which led to the establishment of an empire and a dynasty."--Back cover
Hispaniae, Spain and the development of Roman imperialism, 218-82 BC by John Richardson( Book )

25 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces the beginnings and the first 140 years of the Roman presence in Spain, showing how what began as a purely military commitment developed in addition into a range of civilian activities including taxation, jurisdiction and the founding of both Roman and native settlements. The author uses literary sources, the results of recent and earlier archaeology, numismatics, and epigraphic material to reveal the way in which patterns of administration were created, especially under the direction of the military commanders sent from Rome to the two Spanish provinciae. This is of major importance for understanding the way in which Roman power spread during this period, not only in Spain, but throughout the Mediterranean world
The language of empire : Rome and the idea of empire from the third century BC to the second century AD by John Richardson( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Roman Empire has been an object of fascination for the past two millennia, and the story of how a small city in central Italy came to dominate the whole of the Mediterranean basin, most of modern Europe and the lands of Asia Minor and the middle east has often been told. It has provided the model for European empires from Charlemagne to Queen Victoria and beyond, and is still the basis of comparison for investigators of modern imperialisms. By an exhaustive investigation of the changing meanings of certain key words and their use in the substantial remains of Roman writings and in the structures of Roman political life, this book seeks to discover what the Romans themselves thought about their imperial power in the centuries in which they conquered the known world and formed the Empire of the first and second centuries AD."--Jacket
Wars of the Romans in Iberia : Iberike by Appianus( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Appian wrote his Roman History in the second century AD as a series of books arranged geographically to chronicle the rise of the Roman empire. His Iberike, of which this is the first translation with historical commentary in English, deals with the Romans' wars in the Iberian peninsula from the third to the first centuries BC. It is the only continuous source for much of the history of this crucial period in one of the earliest regions of Rome's imperial expansion and so fills in the gap made by the loss of Livy's later books. He describes the major campaigns of the conquest from the defeat of the Carthaginians by Scipio Africanus, the wars against the Celtiberians the war against the Lusitanians under Virathus and the seige of Numantia. But its value is more than that of a mere chronicler of otherwise obscure events, he was an historian who deserves to be studied in his own right." --Book Jacket
La vie publique des cités dans l'Occident romain by Bertrand Goffaux( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : Fruits d'un travail de recherche patient et méthodique, fondés sur des lectures critiques, renouvelées et toujours croisées de la documentation littéraire, épigraphique ou archéologique, l'ouvrage forme une contribution majeure à l'histoire de la vie des cités de l'Occident romain. L'auteur s'y intéresse d'abord à la construction publique et à la formation des paysages urbains en étudiant le rôle des différents acteurs et les mécanismes de financements qu'ils impliquaient. Il en étudie les dimensions symboliques et mémorielles, lues et décryptées dans les discours des Anciens transmis par les textes ou les inscriptions. Exemple détaillé et illustré de sa démarche, l'analyse des constructions collégiales et associatives qui occupe une belle part de l'oeuvre de l'auteur lui permet de nuancer nombre d'idées reçues et livre une rigoureuse et intelligente grille de lecture de ces édifices et de leur insertion dans la ville. Enfin, l'auteur s'intéresse à la place des cultes et à l'organisation religieuse provinciale, toujours pour mieux comprendre l'histoire des communautés civiques. Si la péninsule Ibérique constitue un lieu d'étude privilégié, l'ensemble des études rassemblées dans cet ouvrage s'ouvre aux autres provinces d'Occident et à l'Italie

Mass spectral investigation of fungal metabolites from Aspergillus ruber by John Richardson( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thirteen samples isolated by silica gel chromatography from Aspergillus ruber grown on ground peanut slurries* were subjected to analysis with a high-resolution mass spectrometer. When sufficient amounts of sample were present, supportive techniques including NMR, IR, and UV spectroscopy were also employed. Thin-layer-chromatography was initially used to monitor the purity of the samples. However, mass spectrometric analysis showed the presence of two or more components in many of the fractions. Several of these multi-component samples were subjected to further purification by recrystallization, molecular distillation, or high-pressure liquid chromatography. High-resolution measurements on molecular ions permitted elemental compositions to be calculated for many of the components. Two of the compositions were supported by elemental analysis with a CHN analyzer. From the elemental compositions together with fragmentation patterns plus information from NMR, IR, and UV, molecular structures were proposed. Where certain functional groups were suspected, such as hydroxyl and amine moieties, chemical derivatizations including permethylation, demethylation, acetylation, oxidation, and reduction were carried out. Mass spectra were then obtained of the products. The reactions were also run on several standard compounds to check the experimental procedures and the predictability of the products
