Beschreibung

Zusatztext This is a very good book, which successfully demonstrates the need for a major rethinking of the political motives and cultural structures that shaped Roman foreign policy, and the first chapter points to even wider implications. Informationen zum Autor Jessica H. Clark is Assistant Professor of History at California State University, Chico. Klappentext Why should we investigate the defeats of a society that almost never lost a war? In Triumph in Defeat, Jessica H. Clark answers this question by showing what responses to defeat can tell us about the Roman definition of victory. This book traces Roman responses to the Second Punic War, showing the extent to which Rome's reputation as an inevitable military victor was constructed by political discourse.
