Good chronical history of Rome ( )

Nice review of cultural, political, and religious aspects of the Roman Empire. Again, I didn't read every page of this one, but I found much helpful. It was clearly written, easy to read, and the divisions and table I found helpful.

This is really a comprehensive textbook for students rather than narrative history. If I were a student, this would be invaluable. So, after a couple of chapters, I am stopping reading it through, but will retain for reference. No star rating.

I think everyone who knows me know that I love history. Even so, this book was one of the most dry, tedious things that I have ever read. This book exhibits exactly what the problem is with the way that history is taught in schools today. It was page after page of unpronounceable names, meaningless dates, and useless terminology. There was not even the slightest attempt at making history a continuous flow, connecting the dots or making it interesting with narrative. In addition, the author seemed to focus the most extensively on the most complex and boring aspects of history such as economics and population numbers. Mind-numbing. The only reason it gets even two stars is because it contains some good material that I can use as a reference later when bare facts and figures are needed. Lots of information; no presentation. ( )
