Looking afresh at the Pax Romana, and whether or not the Romans did preside over a peaceful, prosperous and stable empire, Adrian Goldsworthy sets his discussion within the context of Roman conquest and an understanding of how the empire functioned. From the violent conquests of the Republic to the fall of empire, Goldsworthy examines how subject populations experienced life in the Roman provinces under rulers who were ‘good at waging war and skilled in the politics of dominating others’.
