In 146 BCE the Romans destroyed Corinth, bringing to a climax their long period of expansion in the east, which had begun in 229. Waterfield's history of these momentous decades combines a narrative of the clash of superpowers in the Punic, Illyrian and Macedonian Wars with analysis of Rome's eastern policy: he argues that the Romans were 'natural imperialists' whose belligerence, deceit and arrogance precluded successful negotiation during the long period of indirect rule.
