The History of Rome, Vol. Mommsen starts his history of the city on the seven hills of the Tiber in the conventional place - with the expulsion of the king - and proceeds to tell the whole story of the Republic and Empire. It's a long read, but well-told withall. Of course being a 19th Century historian writing about Rome, Mommsen can't help moralizing about the causes of Rome's troubles. However his focus is not "moral decay" a la Gibbon, but the very real social problems that bedeviled the city almost from its founding.

The Period Anterior to the Abolition of the Monarchy. In Dr. Mommsen's book, as in every other German work that has occasion to touch on abstract matters, there occur sentences couched in a peculiar terminology and not very susceptible of translation. There are one or two sentences of this sort, more especially in the chapter on Religion in the 1st volume, and in the critique of Euripides as to which I am not very confident that I have seized or succeeded in expressing the meaning.

Excerpt from The History of Rome, Vol. 5When the course of history turns from the miserable monotony of the political selfishness, which fought its battles in the senate-house and in the streets of the capital, to the matters of greater importance than the question whether the first monarch of Rome should be called Gnaeus, Gains, or Marcus, we may well be allowed - on the threshold of an event, the effects of which still at the present day influence the destinies of the world - to look round us for a moment, and to indicate the point of view under which the conquest of what is now France by the Romans, and their first contact with the inhabitants of Germany and of Great Britain, are to be apprehended in their bearing on the general history of the world.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
