This book is both a fascinating insight into the life of an imperial Roman officer during the period of the Principate, and a rollicking good tale told in Philip Matyszak's trademark lively style.

    No other political entity has shaped the modern world like the Roman Empire. Encompassing close to a quarter of the worlds population and 3 million km2 of land, it represented a diverse and dynamic collection of nations, states and tribes, all bound to Rome and the ideal of a Roman identity. In the lively and engaging style that hes known for, Philip Matyszak traces the history of the Roman Empire from the fall of the Assyrians and the rise of the Roman Republic through to the ages of expansion, crisis and eventual split. Breathing new life into these extraordinary events, Matyszak explains how the empire operated, deploying its incredibly military machine to conquer vast territory then naturalizing its subject peoples as citizens of Rome. It was a method of rule so sophisticated that loyalty to Rome remained strong even afters its collapse creating an expansive legacy that continues to this day.

    Ob der Online-Händler ›Amazon‹ oder die Sportmarke ›Nike‹ – in unserem Alltag begegnen uns ständig Spuren der griechisch-römischen Mythologie. Doch wo liegt ihr Ursprung und um welche Geschichte geht es eigentlich genau? Philip Matyszak bringt dem Leser auf höchst unterhaltsame Weise die klassischen Mythen der Antike nahe. Er erzählt von den Abenteuern und Beziehungen der Götter, Halbgötter und Helden, denn das ist es, was die Mythen bis heute so lebendig macht: Es sind gewaltige Erzählungen, in denen es immer auch ›menschelt‹ – nicht umsonst greift die Psychologie gern auf das mythologische Repertoire zurück, wenn sie wie im Falle des Ödipus-Komplexes menschliche Beziehungen beschreiben. So erklärt der Band nicht nur die klassischen Mythen und wie die Griechen und Römer die Welt verstanden, sondern bietet auch originelle Einsichten in unsere gegenwärtige Gesellschaft. Kurze Beschreibungen der mythologischen Protagonisten verschaffen dem Leser zusätzlich einen schnellen Überblick.

    Ein neues Sammelsurium antiker Seltsamkeiten: Auch in diesem Hörbuch versammelt Philip Matyszak Anekdoten, Fakten und allerhand Erzählenswertes aus dem griechischen und dem römischen Altertum. Dabei offenbart er erneut sowohl seinen erstaunlichen Wissensreichtum als auch einen untrüglichen Sinn für Skurriles und Groteskes. So erfahren wir unter anderem das Schicksal der adligen römischen Damen Cornelia und Sergia aus dem 4. Jh. v. Chr., die, wie sie selbst sagten, gesunde Kräutertränke herstellten – einen Zusammenhang mit einer ganzen Serie von Todesfällen leugneten sie. Als sie zum Forum gebracht und untersucht wurden, forderte man sie auf, die ihre Gemische selbst zu trinken – schließlich seien sie ja gesund. Sie willigten sofort ein und stürzten das Gebräu hinunter. Und waren kurz darauf tot ... Das Hörbuch präsentiert einen ganzen Reigen solcher und ähnlicher Geschichten, die ein farbiges, mitunter grell-buntes, in jedem Fall überraschendes Bild der Antike zeichnen!

  • - Fall of a Warrior Nation
    af Philip Matyszak
    112,95 kr.

    Universally admired in 479 BC, the Spartans were masters of the Greek world by 402 BC, only for their state to collapse in the next generation. What went wrong? Was the fall of Sparta inevitable? Philip Matyszak examines the political blunders and failures of leadership which combined with unresolved social issues to bring down the nation - even as its warriors remained invincible on the battlefield.The Spartans believed their constitution and society above the changes sweeping their world, and in resisting change, they were eventually overwhelmed by it. Yet this is also a story of defiance, for the Spartans refused to accept their humiliation and – although never more than a tiny and underpopulated city-state – for many years their city exercised influence far beyond its size and population. This is a chronicle of political failure, but also a lesson in how to go down fighting. Even with the Roman legions set to overwhelm their city, the Spartans never gave up.Sparta: Fall of a Warrior Nation tells a seldom-told tale, yet one rich in heroes and villains, epic battles and political skulduggery.

  • - Rise of a Warrior Nation
    af Philip Matyszak

    Their contemporaries were fascinated by the Spartans and we still are. They are portrayed as the stereotypical macho heroes: noble, laconic, totally fearless and impervious to discomfort and pain. What makes the study of Sparta so interesting is that to a large extent the Spartans lived up to this image. Ancient Sparta, however, was a city of contrasts. We might admire their physical toughness and heroism in adversity but Spartans also systematically abused their children. They gave rights to citizen women that were unmatched in Europe until the modern era, meanwhile subjecting their conquered subject peoples to a murderous reign of terror. Though idealized by the Athenian contemporaries of Socrates Sparta was almost devoid of intellectual achievement. Philip Matyszak explores two themes: how Sparta came to be the unique society it was, and the rise of the city from a Peloponnesian village to the military superpower of Greece. But above all, his focus is on the Spartan hoplite, the archetypal Greek warrior who was respected and feared throughout Greece in his own day, and who has since become a legend. The reader is shown the man behind the myth; who he was, who he thought he was, and the environment which produced him.

  • - Rome's Indomitable Enemy
    af Philip Matyszak
    73,95 kr.

    A military biography of Mithridates VI ‘the Great’ of Pontus, Rome’s most persistent enemy. The Mithridiatic wars stretched over half a century and two continents, and have a fascinating cast of pirates, rebels, turncoats and poisoners (though an unfortunate lack of heroes with untarnished motives). There are pitched battles, epic sieges, double-crosses and world-class political conniving, assassinations and general treachery. Through it all, the story is built about the dominant character of Mithridates, connoisseur of poisons, arch-schemer and strategist; resilient in defeat, savage and vindictive in victory. Almost by definition, this book will break new ground, in that nothing has been written on Mithridates for the general public for almost half a century, though scholarly journals have been adding a steady trickle of new evidence, which is drawn upon here. Few enough leaders went to war with Rome and lived long to tell the tale, but in the first half of the first century BC, Mithridates did so three times. At the high point of his career his armies swept the Romans out of Asia Minor and Greece, reversing a century of Roman expansion in the region. Even once fortune had turned against him he would not submit. Upto the day he died, a fugitive drive to suicide by the treachery of his own son, he was still planning an overland invasion of Roman itself.

    When, after a brutal civil war, the dictator Sulla took power in Rome (82 BC), among the many who refused to accept his rule was a young army officer called Quintus Sertorius. Sertorius fled, first to Africa and then to Spain, where he made common cause with the native people who had been savagely oppressed by a succession of corrupt Roman governors. Discovering a genius for guerilla warfare (he claimed he received divine guidance from Artemis via a white fawn he kept),Sertorius came close to driving the Romans out of Spain altogether.rnRome responded by sending reinforcements under the control of the up-and-coming young general Gnaeus Pompey (later Pompey the Great). **The epic struggle which followed between these two great commanders is a masterclass of ancient strategy and tactical manoeuvre. Massively outnumbered, Sertorious remained undefeated on the battlefield, but was eventually assassinated by jealous subordinates, none of whom proved a match for Pompey. This proved the decisive end of the struggle for Spain, though recalcitrant tribes held out until the time of Augustus.rnThe tale of Sertorius is the story of a people struggling to liberate themselves from oppressive rule. It is also the story of Sertorius himself, who started as an idealist, and ended almost as savage and despotic as his enemies. But above all, it is the story of a duel between two great generals, fought between two different styles of army in the valleys of the Spanish interior.
