Hadrian : the restless emperor by Anthony Birley ( Book )
31 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 1,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hadrian's reign (AD 117-138) was a watershed in the history of the Roman Empire. Hadrian abandoned his predecessor Trajan's eastern conquests - Mesopotamia and Armenia - trimmed down the lands beyond the lower Danube, and constructed new demarcation lines in Germany, North Africa, and most famously Hadrian's Wall in Britain, to delimit the empire.The emperor Hadrian, a strange and baffling figure to his contemporaries, had a many-sided personality. Insatiably ambitious, and a passionate Philhellene, he promoted the 'Greek Renaissance' extravagantly. But his attempt to Hellenize the Jews, i

Agricola and Germany by Cornelius Tacitus ( )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cornelius Tacitus, Rome's greatest historian and the last major writer of classical Latin prose, produced his first two books in AD 98. He was inspired to take up his pen when the assassination of Domitian ended 'fifteen years of enforced silence'. These first products were brief: the biography of his late father-in-law Julius Agricola and an account of Rome's most dangerous enemies, the Germans. As governor for seven years, Agricola had completed the conquest of Britain and much of Tacitus' biography is devoted to the country and its people. Germany is the only surviving specimen from the ancient world of an ethnographic study. Each of these early works has had immense influence on our perception of Rome and the northern 'barbarians'." "This newly translated edition reflects recent research in Roman-British and Roman-German history, including recently discovered evidence on Tacitus' early career."--BOOK JACKET

17 editions published between 1976 and 1992 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Augustan history was written by an anonymous fourth century author pretending to be a team of six much earlier biographers. Historical fact about the Roman emperors from Hadrian through Heliogabulus is mixed with apocryphal anecdotes. Birley has bridged the gap between this text and Suetonius by including brief lives of Nerva and Trajan

Sir Ronald Syme (1903-89) is internationally known as one of the greatest Roman historians of this century. After his death, the massive manuscript for a practically complete, major work on ancient Turkey was discovered among his papers. Written during the war, while the author was himself in Turkey, it offers a fascinating insight into the development of a great historian, and is itself a masterly, original, and splendidly written study of the peoples and places of Asia Minor under Persian, Greek, and Roman rule

There are also sections on local government, the governors' staff, the senatorial and procuratorial career in the principate, and the late Roman civil and military system. The subdivisions, into Upper and Lower Britain, then into four, and finally five, provinces are discussed. Thus the book provides a narrative history of Roman Britain, with a full conspectus of the literary, epigraphic, and numismatic sources. Further, the analysis of the background and careers of hundreds of individuals who served in Britain sheds light on the way the Roman Empire worked during a period of over 360 years."--BOOK JACKET
