Explore the Captivating History of the Roman Empire The Roman Empire was one of the most powerful forces the world has ever seen. But this isn't just the story of conquest or the incredible system of institutions that made it possible. The Roman Empire is not yet another boring historical topic. On the contrary, it wakes our imagination, scares us, and entertains us. This is the story of the fascinating men and women-the emperors, their wives, parents, brothers, sisters, and children-who gave the empire its characteristic charm. Some of them, like Marcus Aurelius and Antoninus Pius, were virtuous and wise; others-like Caligula, Commodus, and Caracalla-were monstrous, insane predators whose thirst for blood and sexual habits were beyond believable. This is the story of the most important people and events between the two crucial events - the rise of Augustus in the first century BC and the final sack of Rome in the late fifth century AD. Some of the topics covered in this book include: From the Republic to the Empire: The Rise of Octavian The Age of Augustus The Julio-Claudian Dynasty After Augustus: From Tiberius to Nero Civil War and the Year of the Four Emperors (AD 68-69) The Flavians The Nerva-Antonine Dynasty: The Five Good Emperors (and a Couple of Not So Good Ones) Some New Emperors Crises, Civil Wars, and Divisions: The Long and Painful Decline Two Empires: East and West And a Great Deal More You Don't Want to Miss Out On!

Verführung ist der Schlüssel zum Erfolg: in der Liebe, in der Politik, in der Wirtschaft. In seinem Bestseller "Die 24 Gesetze der Verführung", der hier als Kompaktausgabe vorliegt, zeigt Robert Greene, wie man mit Charme und Überzeugungskraft andere Menschen beeinflussen und auf Abwege bringen kann. Er präsentiert das ganze Wissen, das sich im Lauf der Weltgeschichte über die Kunst der Verführung angehäuft hat: von Kleopatra über John F. Kennedy, Ovid und Casanova bis Freud. Und er erklärt die Regeln dieses amoralischen Spiels, dem sich keiner entziehen kann ...

Charisma Und Res Republica

Author: Christoph R. Hatscher

Publisher: Franz Steiner Verlag

ISBN: 9783515075237

Category: History

A detailed examination of the processes which transformed Rome's aristocratic republic into a monarchy. Hatscher explores the change in the style of ruling that was apparent at the end of the Republic. Charismatic individuals, such as Sulla and Caesar, paved the way for the monarchy and, Hatscher argues, are often role-models for modern rulers. Hatscher explores the organisation and hierarchy of power and its followers. This is also a study of Max Weber's interpretation of `Herrschaftssoziologie', the origins of his methodology and his view of the individual exponents of power who so dominated this transitional period of Rome's history.

Der Band präsentiert eine neue Sicht von Mediävisten unterschiedlicher Disziplinen auf die Kontinuität der Antike in das sogenannte Mittelalter. Er verfolgt das parallele Nebeneinander von Antike und Christentum im 5. und 6. Jahrhundert, das anschließende Fortführen der Antike durch die Westgoten sowie das Beharren in Iberien auf römisch-romanischer Form und Ambivalenz gegen die außerspanisch längst als moderner Stil etablierte Gotik.
