This book argues that the liberal concept of rights presupposes and is grounded in an individualistic culture or shared way of relating, and that this particular shared way of relating emerged only in the wake of the Reformation in the modern West.

One of my favorites to this point in reading the series. This book takes you to a hidden valley where a lost Roman civilization has lived for hundreds of years. Through this Burroughs gives us a peek at Roman culture and existence, much like he did with Knights in the previous book.

This was a really great read. I could not put it down once I started. ( )

One of Burroughs' more interesting archaeological Tarzan adventures in which Erich Von Harben is introduced, and Tarzan discovers himself inside one of Burroughs' many lost civilizations in Africa, a Roman City. An interesting portrayal of Burroughs' concept of Roman life and mores, and a satisfying adventure. ( )

While searching for a missing scholar in the treacherous Wiramwazi Mountains, Tarzan is captured by an ancient tribe of the centuries-dead Roman Empire. In this dangerous throwback to Caesar's brutal regime, Tarzan must triumph over cruel emperors, skilled gladiators, and blood-hungry lions - or he will never taste freedom again...
