9780199655342: Blood of the Provinces: The Roman Auxila and the Making of Provincial Society from Augustus to the Severans

Blood of the Provinces is the first fully comprehensive study of the largest part of the Roman army, the auxilia. This non-citizen force constituted more than half of Rome's celebrated armies and was often the military presence in some of its territories. Diverse in origins, character, and culture, they played an essential role in building the empire, sustaining the unequal peace celebrated as the pax Romana, and enacting the emperor's writ.

Drawing upon the latest historical and archaeological research to examine recruitment, belief, daily routine, language, tactics, and dress, this volume offers an examination of the Empire and its soldiers in a radical new way. Blood of the Provinces demonstrates how the Roman state addressed a crucial and enduring challenge both on and off the battlefield--retaining control of the miscellaneous auxiliaries upon whom its very existence depended. Crucially, this was not simply achieved by pay and punishment, but also by a very particular set of cultural attributes that characterized provincial society under the Roman Empire. Focusing on the soldiers themselves, and encompassing the disparate military communities of which they were a part, it offers a vital source of information on how individuals and communities were incorporated into provincial society under the Empire, and how the character of that society evolved as a result.

Review:

excellent ... For any student of the Roman army or of Roman provincial life, this book is essential reading ... In this formidable volume, Haynes has given us a study of the auxilia that is unlikely to be superseded in a generation. * Colin E. P. Adams, American Historical Review * This book is a crucial contribution not only to Roman military studies but to Roman archaeology and history more generally ... Blood of the Provinces has set the bar high for future work on the Roman military * Tyler Franconi, Bryn Mawr Classical Review * For those with a serious interest in the Roman army and more widely in the impact of the Roman empire on provincial populations, I have no hesitation in recommending a book that came out late last year - Ian Haynes, The Blood of the Provinces. * Adrian Goldsworthy, Ancient Historian and Novelist * superb study * Times Literary Supplement * fascinating and authoritative... Essential for students of the Roman world, this book also offers plenty of interest to more general readers. * Current Archaeology *

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Oxford University Press, 2013. 2nd impr. XVIII,430p. ills.(B&W photographs and line drawings). Hardbound with dust wrps. Spine gilt titled. Initials stamp, date and personal library mark on free endpaper. Those familiar with Haynes?s previous work will recognize this volume as the culmination of nearly 30 years of research on the Roman auxilia across the Empire. It should come as no surprise, then, that this book is an exceptionally detailed piece of scholarship that engages with a wide range of archaeological, literary, and epigraphic evidence in order to produce a comprehensive examination of the Roman auxilia between the reigns of Augustus and Alexander Severus. This book is, however, much more than just a military history. Haynes uses the auxilia as a lens through which to study the development of provincial society under the early and high Empire, making this a widely applicable and extremely interesting work. (.) Haynes explores this military community and its surrounding society in twenty chapters divided between six sections. The first section, consisting of four chapters, examines the history and development of the auxilia in the Roman military from the Republican period up to the Constitutio Antoniniana of AD 212. (.) The second section explores the methods and ramifications of auxiliary recruitment from provinces and subsequent deployment to other regions. Using case studies ranging from Gauls to Spaniards to Thracians, this chapter examines how Rome?s recruitment policies adjusted to local conditions and fit into provincial taxation schemes. Haynes argues that manpower for auxiliary units was assessed by census in the same manner as taxes in cash and in kind, illustrating this point with many examples. (.) The third section examines the elements of auxiliary service that were experienced on a daily basis: urbanism, food, fashion, and bathing. (.) Religious experience formed another important element of the auxiliary habitus, discussed in section four. Haynes chooses to focus on ?cult practice? rather than ?religion? in order to emphasize the many different forms of worship evident in the archaeological record. Many similarities in cult practices are seen across the Empire, resulting from the loose definitions of rituals and other forms of adherence common in the Roman world. Emperor worship was a key unifying element (.). Section five offers a detailed discussion of the arms, armor, and tactics of the soldiers. (.) Following this, the book offers a re-assessment of the importance and place of literacy within the Roman military, placing the discussion within the context of Empire-wide multi-lingualism based upon written evidence from a number of different military sites. (.) The final section focuses on veterans and their place in society after honorable discharge from the units. (.) This book is a crucial contribution not only to Roman military studies but to Roman archaeology and history more generally. Hayne?s argument that ?incorporation did not require homogenization" (76) has wide implications for other cultural themes within the field, and future scholarship on socio-cultural change must now address this viewpoint. The breadth of knowledge harnessed in this volume is impressive to say the least, ably interlacing narratives from distant provinces such as Britain, Dacia, and Egypt in order to present a highly nuanced understanding of the auxilia and their place within Roman society.
