    Imperial Ideology and Provincial Loyalty in the Roman Empire
    Clifford Ando (Author)
    Available worldwide
    (Cincinnati Classical Studies) Classics and Contemporary Thought
    A Joan Palevsky Book in Classical Literature
    Imperial Ideology and Provincial Loyalty in the Roman Empire argues that the longevity of the empire rested not on Roman military power but on a gradually realized consensus that Roman rule was justified. This consensus was itself the product of a complex conversation between the central government and its far-flung peripheries"

    Neokoroi: Greek Cities and Roman Emperors
    Barbara Burrell
    The neokoroi, or 'temple-wardens, ' were Hellenized cities of the eastern Roman empire who received that title for possessing their provinces' temples to the living emperor. This work collects and analyzes all the evidence for the neokoroi, including their coins and inscriptions, contemporary and subsequent historical texts, and the archaeological remains of the temples themselves and the statues that stood within them.

    The Ghosts of Cannae: Hannibal and the Darkest Hour of the Roman Republic by Robert L. O'Connell

    Excelent book about the Hannibal invasion of Italy with the most famous battle in the center but also how the strengths and weakness of the opponents societies and military strategies turn slowly the tide in favour of the romans despite the tremendous losses and the genius of the punic general.

    Sounds interesting Darkan, thanks for the tip.

    This book called Caesarīs Heirs: Wolves in the Forum by John Bassett looks interesting (Pen and Sword books - well I donīt know what is wrong with this publiser, this book according amazon was released 19.12.2014, itīs out of stock on amazon, but itīs not posted on publiher web, so I donīt know how to buy it. Also the Rise of Seleukid Empire is out of stock, but this is probably my mistake )

    Greek Narratives of the Roman Empire under the Severans
    Cassius Dio, Philostratus and Herodian

    AUTHOR: Adam M. Kemezis
    DATE PUBLISHED: October 2014
    This book examines the narratives put out by the new dynasty, and how the literary elite responded with divergent visions of their own. It focuses on four long Greek narrative texts from the period (by Cassius Dio, Philostratus and Herodian), each of which constructs its own version of the empire, each defined by different Greek and Roman elements and each differently affected by dynastic change, especially that from Antonine to Severan.

    You can download and read the introduction here, it has been uploaded by the author

    Not sure which Amazon.com you are using but you can try either the UK one or the US. Often rare books in the US are more available in the UK.

    I will try this. Thank you for your help! The books you posted looks very interesting! Iīm currently reading The Emperor Domitian by Brian W. Jones. Also I have ordered The Frontiers of Imperial Rome by David J Brezze and Between Rome and Persia: The Middle Euphrates, Mesopotamia and Palmyra Under Roman Control by Peter Edwell (all are after EB timeframe), so out of money for new books

    @ MIKE GOLF: Thanks for your concern, Iīm using this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/Caesars-Heirs-...ar%C5%88+heirs

    This site http://scaddenda.org/ (see below)is an invaluable numismatic resource for the study of the Seleukids, you will also find on the front page two publications.
    The volumes are pretty expensive, hence the reason I have only managed to aquire the first volume and it's accompanying appendixes, indices, and plates volume Seleukos I - Antiokhos III .
    But the site, as I mentioned is a great tool for research

    I seem to be either buying/reading too much, or I took the EB contract 'read more history' too seriously! Anyway, here is another for Roman archaeologists and enthusiasts of the Limes during the later periods.Hadrian's Wall and the End of Empire
    "The Roman Frontier in the 4th and 5th Centuries"
    Author: Rob Collins
    http://www.routledge.com/books/detai...5884112/<br /> Examining Hadrian’s Wall and the Roman frontier of northern England from the fourth century into the Early Medieval period, this book investigates a late frontier in transition from an imperial border zone to incorporation into Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, using both archaeological and documentary evidence. With an emphasis on the late Roman occupation and Roman military, it places the frontier in the broader imperial context.

    This thread is great and will help me build my library
    A few books I'd like to add:
    The Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World. Found it on eBay for only $165!! It's huge and contains very detailed maps.
    A Guide to the Ancient World by Michael Grant. It's very in depth and a must have. A great guide to all of the ancient places and sites. Really helps deciding on which cities should be in or out in my mod

    ive read the the poison king.. It's basically a historical novel. Everything is non fiction but the author makes it into a story. My knowledge of Pontus, the mithradatic wars and the surrounding areas greatly increased after I read this book.

    im reading the fall of Carthage by goldsworthy now. I'd say it's a pretty good read especially if you're interested in tactics and strategy. This book has taught me that the Romans were experts at adaptation while Carthage lost the war due to their own issues.

    Michael Grant has also written one called 'The Antontines: The Roman Empire in Transition' published by Routledge (1994) a good introduction to what Gibbon, in his rather biased view of society, deemed the period when humanity was happiest.
