Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Etruscans, then pay attention...

The importance of the Etruscans can be traced back to Rome. The Roman Republic, and later the Roman Empire, was an unusual conqueror because it would absorb and assimilate elements of the cultures it dominated. A standing practice was to allow the defeated to continue practicing their culture and religion so long as they paid their taxes on time. 

Such a procedure was part of why Christianity would seep into the Roman Empire around the 1st century CE, for example. For the Etruscans, this meant they influenced aspects of Roman civilization, one of the most powerful cultures in the history of the Western world.

Through the Etruscans, the Romans developed monarchy, walls, drainage systems, and the powerful forum. 

In The Etruscans: A Captivating Guide to the Etruscan Civilization of Ancient Italy That Preceded the Roman Republic, you will discover topics such as:

  • Politics, government, and social structure
  • How an individual lived
  • The origin of the Etruscans
  • The Etruscan orientation, c. 600-400 BCE
  • The Roman conquest, c. 400-20 BCE

I loved It

I loved the History of Rome, and the author’s transition from voice to prose is excellent. This material is just as essential and nearly as epic as the Caesar/Pompey/Octavius fall of the republic, but less often told. Highly recommended.

Well Done

Great book, a real page-turner. It is very easy to read given the subject. I found this writer via his History of Rome (you have to check those out as well) and his book is as good as I thought it would be.
