Baker takes on the entirety of the Roman rise and fall by picking specific stories that exemplify broader themes to weave a long term narrative. I enjoyed the flow, and felt like I learned a ton by reading this book. This is a very similar approach to Parisians, which is a history of Paris by Graham Robb, another great book I read in 2010.
