Pax Romana - War, Peace and Conquest in the Roman World

Pax Romana - - War, Peace and Conquest in the Roman World
by Adrian Goldsworthy

Fairly new book release and wife checked it out for me from the local library (she thought I'd like it, knows my interests well )

I'm no where near as knowledgeable and studied on Rome as many here are, so I may find this a more useful read than those whom have read scores of books on Rome. That considered, and about a third of the way through, I'm finding it very interesting and informative read and providing a good overview of the period of prime Roman civ. Extensive bibliography and notes convince me it is well written and Goldsworthy has an extensive prior record of books and articles on the era.
