The Annals of Imperial Rome
A Vital Primary Source on Imperial Rome
Anyone who has even casually read about Roman imperial history will have encountered Tacitus. He is, according to translator and noted classicist Michael Grant, virtually the only Latin historian we have for the early days of the Roman Empire. This work, generally considered Tacitus' greatest, covers the period from shortly before Augustus' death to AD 69, about three years before Nero's death. ...
Annals of the Former World
Farrar, Straus and Giroux
A nonreader discovers joy
My new husband does not read for pleasure. When I read excerpts from this book to him he was so fascinated that I ordered a copy for him.He has read steadily every day and finished book 1 . He announced that he is now more interested in Geology than in Engineering, which is his field... Thank you, John McPhee....
P. Cornelius Tacitus
Kessinger Publishing, LLC
Definitive Primary Source On the History Of Imperial Roman
I read this book for a graduate course in Roman history. It is an indispensable primary source for students of Roman history. On the first page of his Annals of Imperial Rome, Tacitus wrote that Octavian "seduced the army with bonuses, and his cheap food policy was successful bait for civilians." Tacitus' description of Augustus' transformation of Rome from a republic into an empire is most ...
Annals of the World: James Ussher's Classic Survey of World History
Beautiful book, both outside and inside
First off I have to say that I absolutely love the look of this book. It has a very solid feel to it, with the full 900+ pages perfectly smooth on the sides with the golden edges. The very weight of it makes it very satisfying to hold even when it is closed. Now for the inside: James Ussher gives a purely historic account of both biblical and extra-biblical events. While the first 60 or so ...
The Annals: The Reigns of Tiberius, Claudius, and Nero (Oxford World's Classics)
Anthony A. Barrett
Oxford University Press, USA
First of all, I purchased this book for a Classic Civilization class that I'm currently enrolled in that is solely dedicated to the Roman Emperor Nero, his reign, and the ultimate fall of the Julio-Claudian empire. I have not read the book in its entirety (really I've only read sections pertaining to Nero, Agrippina, Octavia, Poppaea and so on), but it's an interesting bit of ancient Roman ...
Annals of Augusta county, Virginia, from 1726 to 1871
Joseph Addison Waddell
This is an EXACT reproduction of a book published before 1923. This IS NOT an OCR'd book with strange characters, introduced typographical errors, and jumbled words. This book may have occasional imperfections such as missing or blurred pages, poor pictures, errant marks, etc. that were either part of the original artifact, or were introduced by the scanning process. We believe this work is culturally important, and despite the imperfections, ...
The Annals of the World
Master Books; imprint, 2007
The Most Interesting History Of The World You're Every Likely To Read
I'd been reading about James Ussher's "The Annals of the World" for years but had never seen a copy. It has long been famous because of Ussher's claim that the world and everything in it was created at sundown on the day before October 23, 4004 BC. But it wasn't until I was doing the research for a book I was writing, "Authors Of The Bible" that my urge to own a copy became strong enough to ...
The Unknown Lenin: From the Secret Archive (Annals of Communism Series)
Yale University Press
Lenin speaks for himself
Richard Pipes' presentation of archival material concerning Lenin is of great value to anyone interested in the paper trail leading from the millions of corpses scattered across Soviet history to the feet of comrade Lenin. The reviews of this book are interesting since, speaking literally, Pipes did not write the book: Lenin et. al did. Lenin himself and his various murderer flunkies, wrote ...

The Blue Annals (Pt. 1 & 2)
George N. Roerich
Motilal Banarsidass Pub
notice re: review of Sept. 13th, 1999
There are a number of misleading comments in the September 13, 1999 review from "A reader from Southern Vermont." For what it's worth: the *Blue Annals* is, in fact, a fine translation by Mr. Roerich of an extremely important Tibetan historical text by the renowned Tibetan historian `Gos lo-tsaa-ba gZhon-nu-dpal. The Tibetan text translated here is known as the *Deb-ther sngon-po*; it ...
Pharaonic King-Lists, Annals and Day-Books (Ssea Publication)
Donald B. Redford
This is a classic study into the Egyptians' use of the past, focusing on the pictures and texts common in Ancient Egypt showing groupings of kings. The author discusses the genesis and development of the "king list" tradition, following a tradition over three millennia. After taking a chronological approach to "king lists", annals and day lists from the Old to New Kingdoms, the book focuses on the Aegyptiaca of Manetho, perhaps the first truly ...
Annals of the Black Company (The Black Company; Shadows Linger; The White Rose)
Thrilling Tale with All the Necessary Aspects
I have read this book three times in the last 15 months. I'm on my fourth time right now. I can say without a doubt, that this is one of my favorite books. It takes place in a different time in a different world where magic, creatures, and ancient evils run wild. I know it sounds like every other Fantasy book out there, but something sets this one apart. All three of these books follow the ...
Nicole of Prie Mer: Book One of the Latter Annals of Lystra
Roman and Deirdre have been replaced
I was so thrilled to see the continuation of the Lystra series. Like some of the other reviews, I miss hearing about Roman and Deirdre, but I am grateful for the glimpses that Robin offers. Nicole is a wonderful character, I liked her right away. I never thought anyone could replace Roman, but I have got to say that Ares is so hot. Parents should take caution and read this book before ...
The Summer Palace: Volume Three of the Annals of the Chosen
The Death of a Dark Lord
The Summer Palace (2008) is the third fantasy novel in the Annals of the Chosen trilogy, following The Ninth Talisman. In the previous volume, Boss and Lore were imprisoned by the Wizard Lord. Azir and Babble were killed at the Wizard Lord's command just as several wizards had been slain. Sword had killed the soldiers who attacked the Chosen and then fled. Bow, Snatcher and Beauty had also ...
Recent Developments in Several Complex Variables. (AM-100) (Annals of Mathematics Studies)
John Erik Fornaess
Princeton University Press
We shall study a notion of capacity for compact subsets of complex projective space. Our principal motivation for this comes from a theorem of Sibony and Wong 8 , Let K be a compact circled subset of the unit sphere in C2.
The 'Annals' of Flodoard of Reims, 919-966 (Readings in Medieval Civilizations and Cultures)
UTP Higher Education
The Annals of Flodoard of Rheims 919-966
The west in the tenth-century is poorly represented by narrative primary sources besides the Annals of Flodoard of Rheims. The ninth century, on the other hand is highlighted by The Annals of St-Bertin, the Annals of Fulda, etc... Tenth century Francia highlighted by the fragmentation of the Empire of Charlemagne and the confrontation between the Carolingians and the Robertians. Francia is ...
The Annals of Lu Buwei
Stanford University Press
good at every level
This is an outstanding work for anyone interested in the Warring States period at any level. Beginners will find the translation straight-forward, readable, even engaging from time to time. For those a little more advanced, the Preface and Introduction will prove to be extremely helpful (as the library reviews indicate). For advanced students, the translators have included the literary Chinese ...

Courtesy of Teens Read Too
A companion novel to Le Guin's GIFTS, VOICES looks in on the life of a teen growing up in a city controlled by an enemy people. Memer has never known a life when hostile soldiers didn't patrol the streets and the possession of a book was not a crime punishable by death. The invading army believes that written words are evil, and that the city of Ansul is full of demons. But Memer knows that the ...
