    Some interesting posts were lost during the TWC crash. Anyway, the second edition of Eumenes of Cardia, A Greek among Macedonians by Edward M. Anson is out.

    I'm about halfway through John Grainger's "Rome, Parthia, and India: The Violent Emergence of a New World Order, 150-140BC," and am enjoying it so far (http://www.amazon.com/Rome-Parthia-I.../dp/B00ONZQ6HE).

    It is definitely not the most scholarly of books, but it is pretty remarkable for the breadth of topics that it covers, from the Roman-Lusitani wars to the Baktrian invasion of India, and most things in between. It's pretty much "Europa Barbarorum: The Narrative."

    Kinda funny how Grainger has books from all over the place it seems. From WWII to antiquity and everything in between

    I liked them too. The last is a bit hard to read for me though. It's probably just not a fun time for the Seleucids so that's why i don't like it as much i guess. Or maybe it's not written on the same level. Time will tell i guess

    he writes on those topics too? thought he specialised in antiquity and Hellenistic period in particular. well, he is a history teacher iirc and we meant to have a somewhat shallowish but broad knowledge to deliver the curriculum, which may span some 2000 years sometimes.

    Yes he also wrote books on other periods, but the Hellenistic period is his main topic. His new book is called Syria: An Outline History.

    Did anyone of you get a chance to read An invincible beast Understanding the Hellenistic Pike Phalanx in Action? I read the reviews to the previeous book and it had some weird stuff in it like that the hoplites who use their spears in the overhand way are actually throwing javelins which sounds weird

    Not yet, but I hope to get it soon.

    Interesting, but I think the hoplite dory spear wasīt heavy or long that the hoplite wasnīt abe to throw it. But in the way they fought it really sound weird to throw it. Here is nice short video of hoplite dory:

    EDIT: I looked in the OP and I didnīt find this The Tactics of Aelian, the military manual of Hellenistic warfare written in second century AD. The new translation is published by Pen and Sword, my copy arrived two days ago.

    The City in the Classical and Post-Classical World
    EDITORS:Claudia Rapp, Universität Wien, AustriaH. A. Drake, University of California, Santa Barbara
    View all contributors
    DATE PUBLISHED: June 2014
    This volume examines the evolving role of the city and citizenship from classical Athens through fifth-century Rome and medieval Byzantium. Beginning in the first century CE, the universal claims of Hellenistic and Roman imperialism began to be challenged by the growing role of Christianity in shaping the primary allegiances and identities of citizens. An international team of scholars considers the extent of urban transformation, and with it, of cultural and civic identity, as practices and institutions associated with the city-state came to be replaced by those of the Christian community. The twelve essays gathered here develop an innovative research agenda by asking new questions: what was the effect on political ideology and civic identity of the transition from the city culture of the ancient world to the ruralized systems of the middle ages? How did perceptions of empire and oikoumene respond to changed political circumstances? How did Christianity redefine the context of citizenship?

    half way through the Roman Conquests: Asia Minor, Syria and Armenia. Must say Evans' ignorance and confusion on Armenia are truly shocking. an average EB player probably knows more on the topic. He also takes an opposite to Grainger's view of Antiochus Megas - there is nothing Megas about him at all. overall, it is a Roman-centric account that rarely questions the primary Roman sources on certain aspects and provides a rather lengthy quotes to reinforce his main line of argument that focuses on the superiority of the SPQR. more balanced approach would be more beneficial imho. in general, it is shame they (Pen&Sword) did not let Grainger, specialist on the Seleukids, write this volume (he wrote the one of Egypt and Judea instead).

    Anyone know of any good english historical magazines for ancient history? I've seen some really sick ones in Spanish; tons of illustrations, reconstructions of ancient cities, army deployment pictures etc... Can't find anything on the same level for english speakers though. Can't find the links atm as i'm not at home. I'll update it later if anyone is interested

    I read somewhere itīs the worst of the series. I have Egypt and Judea with Macedonia and Greece. I liked these two books.

    EDIT: And to complete information about AW magazine - There is a new upcoming book called The Art of Ancient Warfare with the illustrations from all 50 published issues!

    I also have few of his books. Most probably also the book about Italy is very good. I have several books and articles written by Ross Cowan and itīs always great read.
