The Pax Romana is famous for having provided a remarkable period of peace and stability, rarely seen before or since. Yet the Romans were first and foremost conquerors, imperialists who took by force a vast empire stretching from the Euphrates in the east to the Atlantic coast in the west. Their peace meant Roman victory and was brought about by strength and dominance rather than co-existence with neighbours. The Romans were aggressive and ruthless, and during the creation of their empire millions died or were enslaved. But the Pax Romana was real, not merely the boast of emperors, and some of the regions in the Empire have never again lived for so many generations free from major wars. So what exactly was the Pax Romana and what did it mean for the people who found themselves brought under Roman rule? Acclaimed historian Adrian Goldsworthy tells the story of the creation of the Empire, revealing how and why the Romans came to control so much of the world and asking whether the favourable image of the Roman peace is a true one. He chronicles the many rebellions by the conquered, and describes why these broke out and why most failed. At the same time, he explains that hostility was only one reaction to the arrival of Rome, and from the start there was alliance, collaboration and even enthusiasm for joining the invaders, all of which increased as resistance movements faded away. A ground-breaking and comprehensive history of the Roman Peace, Pax Romana takes the reader on a journey from the bloody conquests of an aggressive Republic through the age of Caesar and Augustus to the golden age of peace and prosperity under diligent emperors like Marcus Aurelius, offering a balanced and nuanced reappraisal of life in the Roman Empire.

How providential, it is often argued, that Christianity began under the pax Romano, an unprecedented time of peace throughout the world! At what other time could the gospel have spread so quickly? Certainly the pax Romana was a time of peace, prosperity and justice for some - yet for others, the majority, it was a time of oppression, misery and suffering under the tyrant's whim. This latter dimension is not often brought out, so this new book plays an important role in redressing the balance. In it, Professor Wengst brings out what it was really like to live in the Roman empire. He is not so much concerned to offer a 'balanced' account as to show what it felt like from below, its effect on the nameless multitudes of whose immeasurable tears and sufferings, hopes and fears there is only indirect evidence. This serves as a prelude to a discussion of the experiences which Jesus and the early Christians had of Roman rule and the way in which they reacted to it. There is no mistaking the fact that the results of the study are not just a piece of past history, but are extraordinarily relevant to the modern world.

This book examines the language and the ideology of the Pax Romana, the Pax Britannica and the Pax Americana within the broader contexts of 'hegemony' and 'empire'. It addresses three main themes: a conceptual examination of the way in which hegemony has been justified; a linguistic study of how the notion of pax (usually translated as peace) has been used in ancient and modern times; and a study of the international orders created by Rome and Britain. Using an historiographical approach, the book draws upon texts from Greco-Roman antiquity, and sources from the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries to show how the pax ideology has served as a justification for hegemonic foreign policy, and as an intellectual exercise in power projection. From Tacitus' condemnation of what he described as 'creating a wilderness and calling it peace', to debates about the establishment of a Pax Americana in post-Saddam Hussein's Iraq, the book shows not only how the governing elite in each of the three hegemonic orders prescribed to a loose interpretation of the pax ideology, but also how their internal disagreements and different conceptualisations of pax have affected the process of 'empire-building'. This book will be of interest to students of international history, empire, and International Relations in general.

In the faraway province of Aquitania, in the confines of the Roman Empire during the time of Augustus, a new city is terrorized by what appear to be a series of brutal murders of young Roman noblemen. There is a background of deep tension between the Roman colonizers and the inhabitants of the town of Lugdunum Convenarum. The Gauls have not been able to accept the strange ways of their masters, and the reign of Augustus—with its promise of universal peace—wants no accidents with the local population. An investigator arrives from Tolosa and begins to uncover the strange happenings in this backwater of the Empire at the foot of the Pyrenees.

"Pax Romana: The Rise of Seren" tells the story of a pilot, Captain Mark Knutson, who flies patrol missions over the Mediterranean Sea for EuroSecure. He lives in a futuristic Rome, a city with a plasma energy dome and a mix of classical and ultra-modern architecture, including 200-story megabuildings. His is a story of the most advanced technology and weaponry, of holograms and imminent revolution, of cloaking technology and drug enhancements, and of heartache and a second chance at love. After breaking things off with Angela, a stunning Italian blonde who is an obsessive follower of quasi-religious fringe groups, Mark meets the lovely and talented Dominique Lecuyer, a French media-assistant for EuroSecure. Angela, meanwhile, has become a disciple of the mysterious Seren, whose supernatural powers are growing daily."

Perhaps in defiance of expectations, Roman peace (pax) was a difficult concept that resisted any straightforward definition: not merely denoting the absence or aftermath of war, it consisted of many layers and associations and formed part of a much greater discourse on the nature of power and how Rome saw her place in the world. During the period from 50 BC to AD 75 - covering the collapse of the Republic, the subsequent civil wars, and the dawn of the Principate-the traditional meaning and language of peace came under extreme pressure as pax was co-opted to serve different strands of political discourse. This volume argues for its fundamental centrality in understanding the changing dynamics of the state and the creation of a new political system in the Roman Empire, moving from the debates over the content of the concept in the dying Republic to discussion of its deployment in the legitimization of the Augustan regime, first through the creation of an authorized version controlled by the princeps and then the ultimate crystallization of the pax augusta as the first wholly imperial concept of peace. Examining the nuances in the various meanings, applications, and contexts of Roman discourse on peace allows us valuable insight into the ways in which the dynamics of power were understood and how these were contingent on the political structures of the day. However it also demonstrates that although the idea of peace came to dominate imperial Rome's self-representation, such discourse was nevertheless only part of a wider discussion on the way in which the Empire conceptualized itself.

Pax Romana: Escape from Babylon continues the story of Captain Mark Knutson, who lives in a Rome now in ruins. Seren has risen to power, and his evil influence is spreading. The sequel to Pax Romana: The Rise of Seren features fascinating new characters who prepare Mark for his eventual confrontation with Seren: his mysterious Chinese mentor Mei-Li, the beautiful Swedish kickboxer Rakel, and Japanese tech-whiz Tomoyuki. As a warrior, Mark transitions from using technological weapons to wielding supernatural ones in a dazzling display of the powers of good against the growing darkness. Mark engages in clashes with hideous creatures, culminating in the ultimate battle with the ultimate evil. MICHAEL THOMAS first dreamed of becoming a space traveler-or at least a science fiction writer-after seeing the 1956 film, Forbidden Planet. He held on to that dream all the way up to the writing of Pax Romana: The Rise of Seren and Pax Romana II: Escape from Babylon. He currently teaches Spanish and world literature and philosophy in the Great Texts Program at Baylor University.
