16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hannibal's dynasty : power and politics in the western Mediterranean, 247-183 BC by Dexter Hoyos( )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hannibal has always been the most famous member of the Barcid dynasty, which dominated Carthage and its empire in Africa and Spain in the latter half of the third century BC. However, Dexter Hoyos' revealing study makes it clear that Carthaginian success was founded on the military and political skills of more than one member of this remarkable family." "It was Hannibal's father, Hamilcar Barca, who relaunched Carthage as an imperial power after disastrous wars; Hamilcar's son-in-law Hasdrubal further developed the new imperium in the face of Roman suspicion and opportunism. Only then was Carthage's historical zenith reached by Hannibal and his two remarkable brothers in the war with Rome from 218-201 BC." "Hoyos investigates the means by which the Barcids won and kept their extraordinary dominance, asking how far we can unravel the truth from ancient sources which both romanticized and reviled these fascinating figures. Issues of politics and power, and other much-debated problems of leadership, diplomacy and war during Carthage's greatest era, are all freshly interpreted in this accessible and enlightening book. Book jacket."--Jacket
Hannibal's war by Livy( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,326 WorldCat member 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
Hannibal : Rome's greatest enemy by Dexter Hoyos( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Hannibal's enduring reputation as a man and as a general is due to his enemies' fascination with him. The way his legend was shaped in the Greek and Roman consciousness is one of the book's main themes. Under Hannibal's leadership, Carthage came close to dominating the western Mediterranean; his total victory would have changed the course of history. That he was a brilliant general is unquestioned, and his strategy and tactics have been studied as real-life lessons in war, even into the modern era. His political career is less appreciated and his achievements as civilian leader of Carthage in 196-5 BC have been virtually overlooked. The issue of whether he might indeed have changed history had he postponed conflict with Rome and concentrated first on Carthage's own prosperity and safety is explored in this volume as vigorously as the military questions

A history of Rome: selections by Livy( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Livy (Titus Livius), the great Roman historian, was born at Patavium (Padua) in 64 or 59 BC, where after years in Rome he died in AD 12 or 17. Livy's history, composed as the imperial autocracy of Augustus was replacing the republican system that had stood for over 500 years, presents in splendid style a vivid narrative of Rome's rise from the traditional foundation of the city in 753 or 751 BC to 9 BC and illustrates the collective and individual virtues necessary to achieve and maintain such greatness. Of its 142 books, conventionally divided into pentads and decads, we have 1-10 and 21-45 complete, and short summaries (periochae) of all the rest except 41 and 43-45; 11-20 are lost, and of the rest only fragments and the summaries remain. This edition replaces the original Loeb edition by Evan T. Sage [and] offers a text based on Briscoe's edition, a fresh translation, and ample annotation fully current with modern scholarship."--

The Carthaginians by Dexter Hoyos( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Carthaginians reveals the complex culture, society and achievements of a famous, yet misunderstood, ancient people. Beginning as Phoenician settlers in North Africa, the Carthaginians then broadened their civilization with influences from neighbouring North African peoples, Egypt, and the Greek world. Their own cultural influence in turn spread across the Western Mediterranean as they imposed dominance over Sardinia, western Sicily, and finally southern Spain

Rome's Italian wars : books six to ten by Titus Livius( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is a superb new translation of Books 6 to 10 of Livy's monumental history of Rome, covering the period when Rome, in a series of ever greater wars, imposed mastery over virtually the entire Italian peninsula. Livy paints vivid portraits of all the notable figures, such as young Manlius Torquatus, victor in a David-versus-Goliath duel with a Gallic chieftain, and Appius Claudius who built Rome's first major highway, the Appian Way. Livy's blend of factual narrative and imaginative recreation brings to life a key moment in the rise of Rome, and the one complete account we have, as the city passes from the mists of legend into the light of history. J.C. Yardley's translation gives a vivid sense of the energy, variety, and literary skill of Livy's great work. Dexter Hoyos's Introduction sets Livy in the context of Roman historiography and deftly explains why this period was so critical an era for the rise of Rome. The most up-to-date edition, drawing on the latest scholarship, this major work of Roman literature and history includes comprehensive notes that clarify problems of historical content, topography, and chronology, a detailed glossary of Roman technical terms, an appendix on the Roman legion of the time, and two maps."--Publisher's website

The fourth decade comprises two recognizable pentads: Books 31-35 narrate the Second Macedonian War (200-196) and its aftermath (Rome's growing hegemony over Greece and tension with Antiochus III, the Seleucid ruler of the Near East), then Books 36-40 the years from 191 to 180, when Rome crushed and shrank Antiochus' empire to extend and consolidate her mastery over the Hellenistic states. Also included are detailed narratives of Rome's domestic politics and society, and of her western wars."--Jacket
