Scipio has defeated the Three Generals of Carthage, and Iberia is his for the taking. To achieve his objective he must defeat the indomitable Iberians and cope with the Latin Party's unrelenting efforts to undermine him.

Far to the west, the Army of a Hundred Nations masses to attack Rome's Grecian allies, led by the ruthless Syrian king Antiochus III and his brilliant military advisor, Hannibal the Great. As Greece falls before them, the two conquerors turn their eyes towards Italia. Only Scipio stands between them and the dissolution of the nascent Roman empire.Scipio's End is a tale of loves lost, friendships betrayed, the corruption of the incorruptible, and the triumph of honor and genius over insurmountable obstacles.

One night in June 1920 he opened old Guiseppe’s box with great excitement. He broke the seals and discovered several scrolls that were still in good condition. He found a long thick nail. This encouraged him to look further. He was horrified when he found the bones of a man’s right hand, together with two more nails and a small piece of papyrus ... THE HAND THAT DROVE THE NAILS tells the story of Scipio Martialis through the experience of a scholar of Greek Aramaic, a man who was shot in 1916 during World War I. He found himself in the strange situation of possibly making the greatest discovery in 2,000 years.

'This vivid and engaging book brings to life some of the most important moments in ancient history, moments that have shaped not only the politics and culture of bygone eras, but the institutions, thoughts and fantasies of our time.' Yuval Noah Harari (Sapiens) 'A bold and imaginative page-turner that challenges ideas about the world of antiquity.' Peter Frankopan (The Silk Roads) 'As panoramic as it is learned, this is ancient history for our globalised world.' Tom Holland (Dynasty, Rubicon) ________________________________________ Acclaimed historian and TV presenter Michael Scott guides us through an epic story spanning ten centuries to create a bold new reading of the classical era for our globalised world. Scott challenges our traditionally western-focused perception of the past, connecting Greco-Roman civilisation to the great rulers and empires that swept across Central Asia to India and China - resulting in a truly global vision of ancient history. With stunning range and richness Ancient Worlds illustrates how the great powers and characters of antiquity shared ambitions and crises, ways of thinking and forms of governing: connections that only grew stronger over the centuries as political systems evolved, mighty armies clashed, universal religions were born and our modern world was foreshadowed. Scott focuses on three epochal 'moments' across the ancient globe, and their profound wider significance: from 509-8 BCE (birth of Athenian democracy and Rome's republic, also the age of Confucius's teachings in China); to 218 BCE (when Hannibal of Carthage challenged Rome and China saw its first emperor); to 312 CE, when Constantine sought to impose Christianity on the Roman world even as Buddhism was pervading China via the vast trading routes we now know as the 'Silk Roads.' A major work of global history, Michael Scott's enthralling journey challenges the way we think about our past, re-draws the map of the classical age to reveal its hidden connections, and shows us how ancient history has lessons for our own times.

The last century of the Roman Republic saw the consensus of the ruling elite shattered by a series of high-profile politicians who proposed political or social reform programs, many of which culminated in acts of bloodshed on the streets of Rome itself. This began in 133 BC with the military recruitment reforms of Tiberius Gracchus, which saw him and his supporters lynched by a mob of angry Senators. He was followed by a series of radical politicians, each with their own agenda that challenged the status quo of the Senatorial elite. Each met a violent response from elements of the ruling order, leading to murder and even battles on the streets of Rome. These bloody political clashes paralyzed the Roman state, eventually leading to its collapse. Covering the period 133 - 70 BC, this volume analyzes each of the key reformers, what they were trying to achieve and how they met their end, narrating the long decline of the Roman Republic into anarchy and civil war.

Examines the forces that have shaped Italian American writing, from the novels of John Fante to the musings of Tony Soprano. Robert Viscusi takes a comprehensive look at Italian American writing by exploring the connections between language and culture in Italian American experience and major literary texts. Italian immigrants, Viscusi argues, considered even their English to be a dialect of Italian, and therefore attempted to create an American English fully reflective of their historical, social, and cultural positions. This approach allows us to see Italian American purposes as profoundly situated in relation not only to American language and culture but also to Italian nationalist narratives in literary history as well as linguistic practice. Viscusi also situates Italian American writing within the “eccentric design” of American literature, and uses a multidisciplinary approach to read not only novels and poems, but also houses, maps, processions, videos, and other artifacts as texts. Robert Viscusi is Professor of English and Executive Officer at The Ethyle R. Wolfe Institute for the Humanities, Brooklyn College, The City University of New York. He is the author of many books, including Max Beerbohm, or, The Dandy Dante: Rereading with Mirrors and Astoria: A Novel, winner of a 1996 American Book Award.

Detective Tiny Limbardo is living a rough life as a single father of three when he is plunged into a double murder investigation that unravels into a grand conspiracy. Will he solve the crime? Will he find and new faith and new love? Will he even stay alive? Brujo: Enemies at the Gate is a fiction work about Law Enforcement in a small town in New Mexico that takes an amazing conspiracy twist. It plunges into government conspiracy, science fiction, and modern combat tactics as a backdrop to explore social concepts of the modern day that affect us all. Brujo has a lesson for everyone. It is a PG type book with violence but few, if any, curse words. It is based on two passages from the Bible which I used as its outline. Also, if you like the outdoors, animals, and children there is something in it for you as well. Most of the things that happen in the story are based, at least in part, on real things that have happened to me in a 24 year career in American Law Enforcement. I hope you enjoy Brujo.
