The Roman Empire's Incredible First Hundred Years
by Warren Steck

Caesar Augustus; John the Baptist; Emperor Nero; King Herod; Jesus of Nazareth; the burning of Rome; the Roman conquest of Britain; the fiery destruction of Pompeii; the Roman-Jewish War; conquests, scandals, intrigues, terrifying cruelties, extraordinary deeds and unforgettable personalities. The first century saw them all. Two thousand years ago, a new world -- our world -- was being born. CENTURY is the story of those fabulous hundred years.

"​There is a breezy contemporaneity to the author’s narrative approach that breathes new life and vigor into Roman history. Furthermore, this is a well-researched volume that includes maps, charts of the great families, and an extensive bibliography. It is unusual that a history book skips along at the pace of a thriller, but that is certainly the case here, such is Steck’s refreshing approach. An unconventional but captivating, multifaceted study of the Roman Empire." - Kirkus Reviews
