Summary:
Situates the sophisticated poetry, dramas, and histories of Plautus, Horace, Julius Caesar, Tacitus, Polybius, Lucretius, and many others within the brutal context of the age. Illuminates the building of empires in Rome, India, and China. Reveals how this period's literature recorded the deeds and sang the praises of the military heroes; provided a common value system of loyalty and courage; created a mythology on which to claim power; and even served to prick the conscience of the powerful. Shows the influence of religious literature-such as the New Testament, updated interpretations of Taoism, and Ashoka's rock edicts-on the empires' values.
