9780199860104: Mastering the West: Rome and Carthage at War

To say the Punic Wars (264-146 BC) were a turning point in world history is a vast understatement.
This bloody and protracted conflict pitted two flourishing Mediterranean powers against one another, leaving one an unrivalled giant and the other a literal pile of ash. To later observers, a collision between these civilizations seemed inevitable and yet to the Romans and Carthaginians at the time hostilities first erupted seemingly out of nowhere, with what were expected to be inconsequential results.

Mastering the West offers a thoroughly engrossing narrative of this century of battle in the western Mediterranean, while treating a full range of themes: the antagonists' military, naval, economic, and demographic resources; the political structures of both republics; and the postwar impact of the conflicts on the participants and victims. The narrative also investigates questions of leadership and the contributions and mistakes of leaders like Hannibal, Fabius the Delayer, Scipio Africanus, Masinissa, and Scipio Aemilianus. Dexter Hoyos, a leading expert of the period, treats the two great powers evenly, without neglecting the important roles played by Syracuse, Macedon, and especially Numidia.

Written with verve in a clear, accessible style, with a range of illustrations and newly-commissioned maps, Mastering the West will be the most reliable and engaging narrative of this pivotal era in ancient history.

Recensione:

[Hoyos] provides accurate descriptions of a series of wars that changes the course of history and gave rise to an empire, the effects of which are still being felt in many parts of the civilised world today. ( David Sim, Minerva)

Dexter Hoyos combines a clear, scholarly, detailed storyline of these events with careful unpicking of the sources... Hoyos is very good on strategy... He is also adept at outlining the tactics of various parties, skilfully explaining how Hannibal's early brilliant victories meant nothing because Rome realised that guerrilla tactics would gradually wear him down... All in all, this account is a great success. ( BBC History magazine, Peter Jones)

a welcome addition to the series, especially since the flow of the narrative (eminently accessible to undergraduate readers) is firmly grounded in the primary and secondary literature, and in sound scholarly judgments. ( R.T. Ingoglia, CHOICE)

a solid and eminently readable contribution to the fields of Punic and middle Republican studies. Its accessibility, erudition and scope will make it an essential addition for either the general reader or those pursuing undergraduate studies. ( David Colwill, Classics for All)

L'autore:

Dexter Hoyos is retired Associate Professor in Classics and Ancient History from the University of Sydney, Australia. His many books include, most recently, Hannibal: Rome's Greatest Enemy, The Carthaginians, and A Companion to the Punic Wars.
