Item description for Rome And The Unification Of Italy (Ignibus Paperbacks S.) (Bristol Phoenix Press - Ignibus Paperbacks) by Keaveney...

From the 2nd century BC the subject peoples of Italy were motivated by a desire for equality with their powerful sister Rome. At first the Italians hoped that equality could be achieved through the citizenship but, when the Romans proved obdurate, they sought complete independence. Description of the "Social War" that followed forms a central feature of this book, in which Keaveney seeks also to delineate the factors which led to the Italian desire first for citizenship, then independence. He describes the conflict and assesses its outcomes. This 2nd edition has an entirely new preface, highlighting scholarly views put forward since the book's original publication (1987) and bringing the bibliography up to date.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rome And The Unification Of Italy (Ignibus Paperbacks S.) (Bristol Phoenix Press - Ignibus Paperbacks)?

Outstanding book on the Social War  Jan 16, 2004
The Social War was one of the great upheavals of the 1st century BC. It killed some 300,000, and reshaped the political map of Italy. Keaveney's books is one of the best to chronical the origins and nature of the conflict. He examines the relations between non-citizen Italy and Rome, noting how Italians were increasingly coveting the Roman franchise in the aftermath of the Punic Wars. He comments on the growing disconnect between Rome and Italy, and the efforts of Flaccus, the Gracchi and Drusus to enfranchise the Italians. With the outbreak of war, he gives a detailed analysis of the campaigns, despite fractured and incomplete records. It is a comprehensive, yet entirely readable book, and is highly recommended.
