The edition I have of this was written in 1958 so it is pretty outdated. The archaeology available at the time was sketchy and doesn't show evidence of the riches that Carthage supposedly had, suggesting that either better archaeology may have been done later, it was looted, or that most of their trade goods were food or other stuff that degraded over time. All in all, this guy did a decent job with the limited source material available on Carthage. His writing was dry, but not as dry as I would ...more
This is an excellent and easy to read books about Carthage. Few studies really describe the rise and fall of a society completely oriented towards capitalism.

Warmington is clear and concise without being overly dry and academic. This book can easily been read by lay people. He is especially clear in his comparison/contrast with Carthage and Rome.
