bookshelves: history
Read in June, 2009

A detailed narrative of the Spartacus slave revolt. As not much is known of the man Spartacus nor the specifics of his campaign, this two hundred page treatment is padded with geographical details and anecdotes of tangential relevance. Strauss writes clearly and unpretentiously, however, and he paints a vivid picture of this important event within the context of the wider world of the late Roman Republic.
