Triumph und Leistungen einer Weltmacht: Greg Woolf, einer der international renommiertesten Historiker für das antike Rom, betrachtet die Geschichte der römischen Republik und Kaiserzeit als Einheit. Dadurch lässt er ganz Europa und die Mittelmeerwelt vor unseren Augen lebendig werden. Alle wichtigen Facetten der römischen Zivilisation kommen zur Sprache. Der Autor zeigt, wie das Römische Reich funktionierte, und stellt es in den Zusammenhang anderer Reiche von China bis Peru. Allerneueste archäologische und historische Erkenntnisse lassen den weltgeschichtlich einzigartigen Erfolg Roms in einem neuen Licht erscheinen. Nicht zuletzt geht es um die alles bedeutende Frage: Warum konnte gerade Rom unter allen uns bekannten Imperien so lange überdauern und eine derart unvergleichliche Wirkung ausüben - bis zum heutigen Tag? Rom hat die Welt unterworfen und sie zivilisatorisch und politisch geeint. Souverän und stilistisch bravourös schildert Greg Woolf, wie es gelang, diesen bis heute einzigen Weltstaat der Geschichte zu sichern und ihm Dauer zu verleihen: ein packender Parcours durch 1500 Jahre Weltgeschichte- das neue Standardwerk.

What does it mean today to experience a work of art? In a culture of triviality and cynicism, at the mercy of a zeitgeist that prizes the superfluous and ephemeral, where can we turn in search of the genuine, the sincere, the truly accomplished? And even if we were to find these things, would we know how to acknowledge their value? The thirty essays in See What I See are the fruits of a lifetime spent grappling with these questions. By turns lyrical and arch, nostalgic and impassioned, gnomic and piercingly insightful, they seek answers in the achievements of the masters as well as in less likely places. For Greg Gerke, the nectar of aesthetic experience is found as often in the human body as in poetry or prose, as much in a movement through the world as on celluloid or canvas. Along with giants like Rilke and Woolf, Gertrude Stein and William H. Gass, Ingmar Bergman and Stanley Kubrick, Gerke´s touchstones include relationships on the rocks, the wreckage of one night´s lust, desire, heartache, confusion, naiveté, the beauty of the spoken voice, and the persistent longing for a lasting connection with someone, or something, meaningful.

Rome: An Empire´s Story , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, ...

The very idea of empire was created in ancient Rome, and even today, traces of its monuments, literature, and institutions can be found across Europe, the Near East, and North Africa - and sometimes even further afield.In Rome, historian Greg Woolf expertly recounts how this mammoth empire was created, how it was sustained in crisis, and how it shaped the world of its rulers and subjects - a story spanning a millennium and a half of history. The personalities and events of Roman history have become part of the West´s cultural lexicon, and Woolf provides brilliant retellings of each of these, from the war with Carthage to Octavian´s victory over Cleopatra and the height of territorial expansion under the emperors Trajan and Hadrian to the founding of Constantinople and the barbarian invasions which resulted in Rome´s ultimate collapse. Throughout, Woolf carefully considers the conditions that made Rome´s success possible and so durable, covering topics as diverse as ecology, slavery, and religion. Woolf also compares Rome to other ancient empires and to its many later imitators, bringing into vivid relief the Empire´s most distinctive and enduring features. As Woolf demonstrates, nobody ever planned to create a state that would last more than a millennium and a half, yet Rome was able, in the end, to survive barbarian migrations, economic collapse, and even the conflicts between a series of world religions that had grown up within its borders, and in the process, generated an image and a myth of empire that is apparently indestructible. 1.
