    Осспадииии! Семь лет! Долгих семь лет я цедил эту книгу! если бы не вся эта самоизоляция, не знаю когда б я осилил! Ну наконец-то! и да, не берите такие издания под одной обложкой... это ж кошмар, ужасный мелкий шрифт (бывает и мельче, конечно), невыносимый давящий объем томика, помноженный на не самый простой слог Т.Ливия. Но и тем не менее, это было прекрасное путешествие в мир античности. Ливий хорош! Некоторые вещи, ИМХО, не сильно зацепили. по мне так война с карфагенянами самая интересная и бит Осспадииии!

Но и тем не менее, это было прекрасное путешествие в мир античности. Ливий хорош! Некоторые вещи, ИМХО, не сильно зацепили. по мне так война с карфагенянами самая интересная и битвы с галлами и галлогреками тоже, а вот этолийцы, спартанцы, македоняне и Антиох с его наследством селевкидов как-то мимо. Очень понравились две истории. Первая про взятие города Вейи, и про то, как римляне решились не переселяться из своей Зубчаниновки (так себе райончик в Самаре) в первоклассный, роскошный и укрепленный город. Сама предыстория, доводы квиритов и последовательность принятия решения теперь надолго в моем сердце. А вторая про неоднократно повторяющийся ловкий трюк Ганнибала Барки, который при разгроме очередного римского войска собирал перстни с именитых граждан, убитых в бою, тут же строчил письма мелким почерком в разные стороны, припечатывал сургуч снятыми перстнями и таким образом дезориентировал противников. и много добился такими хитростями! И да, тут пару месяцев как, гуляло в новостях, что Вин Дизель, начитавшись Тита Ливия, все никак не возьмется за экранизацию истории про Ганнибала. В ТРЁХ частях! К бабке не ходи, понятно кто будет в роли именитого полководца)

    Unique year-by-year writing on the politics, culture, religion, law, economics, class struggles, notable happenings, and of course military engagements of one fortunate city state out of many in the region, and some about its competitors. The humanity of the players really comes through, even if some of it is likely imagined. There are occasional moments of development of the culture where it transitions from unfamiliar to familiar practices, practices that remain with western civilization today Unique year-by-year writing on the politics, culture, religion, law, economics, class struggles, notable happenings, and of course military engagements of one fortunate city state out of many in the region, and some about its competitors.

There are occasional moments of development of the culture where it transitions from unfamiliar to familiar practices, practices that remain with western civilization today. Follows a vast number of recognizeable political and organizational situations and so might be considered a great textbook on leadership. I finished book ten, turned the page, and was horrified that the next ten books have not survived. What a loss.

    Despite being such a mammoth book i found it engaging and compulsive reading. Easily the best bits for me were the speeches dotted throughout the chapters which seemed to flow like poetry. The endless stream of names, places and the repetitive nature of the layout of chapters can get a bit much in places but this is a small niggle in amongst such a huge volume.

    It's 462 b.c. and Oops! Gaius Terentilius Harsa, a tribune to the Plebs has been urging them to harangue the Senate, whilst the consuls are away at war, regarding the overbearing arrogance of the Patricians. Terentilius wants to have the current laws changed for a new 'Code of Laws' that will enable the Plebeians (common working folk) to have more rights in the senate.

Terentilius wants to have the current laws changed for a new 'Code of Laws' that will enable the Plebeians (common working folk) to have more rights in the senate. He said that *"it's now more harsh than the days of the Kings because now we have two masters instead of one with uncontrolled, unlimited powers, with nothing to curb their license... " In the absence of the consuls there was a meeting in the senate with Q Fabius, Prefect of the city who made a violent attack on the proposed law and its author! He made accusation after accusation toward Terentilius swaying the other tribunes and Plebs for peace since last year many had died of the plague and there was no time for this dissension amongst the classes! Anyway after the meeting, Q Fabius calmed them all. Therefore, Terentilius and his tribunes came to an understanding of the matter and a fray was avoided and all adjourned. Info based on Livy's 'History of Rome'. All of this history and I'm only 8% into it! Hope I can make it until the age of Augustus. Yikes! *Actual quote from Book Three chapter nine.

    Remarquable chef-d’œuvre de l’antiquité, ce livre d’environ 2,000 pages vaut la peine d’être lu en entier – les premiers chapitres sont ardus (trop de noms semblables identifiés lors de leur nomination à une fonction sans rien de plus), et le dernier ne contient que des fragments couvrant 150 ans de l’histoire de Rome (difficile à lire sans savoir la date du fragment), mais Tite-Live couvre toute l’histoire politique et militaire de Rome, sans négliger de nommer des auteurs aux opinions divergen Remarquable chef-d’œuvre de l’antiquité, ce livre d’environ 2,000 pages vaut la peine d’être lu en entier – les premiers chapitres sont ardus (trop de noms semblables identifiés lors de leur nomination à une fonction sans rien de plus), et le dernier ne contient que des fragments couvrant 150 ans de l’histoire de Rome (difficile à lire sans savoir la date du fragment), mais Tite-Live couvre toute l’histoire politique et militaire de Rome, sans négliger de nommer des auteurs aux opinions divergentes ou de remettre en question certaines des valeurs et croyances religieuses de son époque. Ce livre aurait par contre gagné beaucoup à inclure plus d’information contextuelle (les noms des régions, villes et peuples se succèdent mais ne sont pas identifiés selon leur équivalent contemporain), surtout que certains des plus grands personnages sont parfois identifiés sous deux ou trois noms différents, selon la coutume de l’époque.

    Pity just a quarter of this work has been conserved! An excellent history of Rome, written by a conscientious historian. Sometimes the wealth of details is overwhelming (up to 60 pages or more per year). Livy also quotes other authors (even Claudius) when they differ from his own views, and states clearly which is certain and which is debatable. Livy makes it clear that he considers the Roman Republic as an excellent way of government, without hiding its bad moments.

Livy makes it clear that he considers the Roman Republic as an excellent way of government, without hiding its bad moments. Augustus is presented as the ruler who finally put an end to 70 years of chaos and civil strife when the Roman Republic got bad, around the year 100 b.C.e. (653 a.u.c.)
