"This book is an excerpt from my Second Edition of Books XXI-XXIII., from which it differs only in the modification that has been made in the preliminary matter, in order to adapt it to the single book. The text is that of Madvig's Edition of 1880, but there is a table giving the different readings that appeared in Madvig's text of 1886"--Page [5]
The war with Hannibal : books XXI-XXX of The history of Rome from its foundation by Livy( Book )
43 editions published between 1965 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,085 libraries worldwide
In The War with Hannibal, Livy chronicles the events of the Second Punic War between Rome and Carthage, until the Battle of Zama in 202 BC. He vividly recreates the immense armies of Hannibal, complete with elephants, crossing the Alps; the panic as they approached the gates of Rome; and the decimation of the Roman army at the Battle of Lake Trasimene. Yet it is also the clash of personalities that fascinates Livy, from great debates in the Senate to the historic meeting between Scipio and Hannibal before the decisive battle. Livy never hesitates to introduce both intense drama and moral lessons into his work, and here he brings a turbulent episode in history powerfully to life

"Romulus and Remus, the rape of Lucretia, Horatius at the bridge, the saga of Coriolanus, Cincinnatus called from his farm to save the state - these and many more stories immortalized by Livy in his history of Rome have become part of our cultural heritage." "The historian's huge work consisted of 142 books which trace Rome's history from its foundation in 753 BC to events in Livy's own lifetime (9 BC). Only 35 books survive in their entirety. These first five books cover the period from Rome's beginnings and her first great foreign conquest, the capture of the Etruscan city of Veii, to her first major defeat, the sack of the city by the Gauls in 390 BC. This new translation is based on R.M. Ogilvie's Oxford Classical Text, the best to date."--Jacket

"Beginning with the mythical origins of the city, the first five books of Livy's magisterial History of Rome recount the battles, betrayals, and triumphs of the men and women who turned a small town into a formidable republic. This literary masterpiece remains essential reading for anyone interested in ancient history or the birth - and death - of great nations."--Jacket
The dawn of the Roman empire by Livy( Book )
18 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 312 libraries worldwide
"Books 31 to 40 of Livy's history chart Rome's emergence as an imperial nation and the Russians' tempestuous involvement with Greece, Macedonia, and the near East in the opening decades of the second century BC; they are our most important source for Greco-Roman relations in that century. Livy's dramatic narrative includes the Roman campaigns in Spain and against the Gallic tribes of Northern Italy; the flight of Hannibal from Carthage and his death in the East; the debate on the Oppian law; and the 'Bacchanalian' episode."--Jacket
Hannibal's war by Livy( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 300 libraries worldwide
"Livy's history of Rome contains, in Books 21 to 30, the definitive ancient account of Hannibal's invasion of Italy in 218 BC, and the war he fought with the Romans over the following sixteen years. Livy describes the bloody siege of the Spanish city of Saguntum, Rome's ally, which sparked the war, and the Carthaginian leader's famous march with elephants over the Alps into Italy. Livy conveys the drama of the great battles, the disastrous encounters at Trasimene and Cannae, and the final confrontation between Hannibal and the youthful Scipio Africanus. Individuals as well as events are brought to life, as the long course of the Second Punic War unfolds."--Jacket

"Both Machiavelli and Guicciardini looked to the past to understand the present. In his Discourses on the First Decade of Livy, Machiavelli examined Roman history in order to identify its underlying political principles. Guicciardini, who would go on from a career in politics to write his monumental History of Italy, tended to look at the motives of the people who shaped history. Reflecting on ancient Rome, both thinkers refined their conceptions of government with an eye to the political turmoil of their own Florence." "Based on the definitive Italian editions and including extensive explanatory notes, The Sweetness of Power re-creates a fascinating conflict that helped to shape the history of western political thought."--Jacket
