Writer and translator Robin Waterfield tells how the Romans brutally and swiftly conquered the Greek states and leagues, and reduced the Macedonian and Syrian empires, in the third and second centuries BC. It took them only about 80 years. The conquest of Greece is central to our understanding of Rome and its empire at the time, says Waterfield. He explains how the Romans developed a highly sophisticated means of dominance by remote control, using authority and diplomacy to keep order rather than armies. And he shows the impact the conquest of Greece had on Rome’s own culture and identity.

Waterfield has translated numerous Greek classics and is also author of Why Socrates Died: Dispelling the Myths; Athens: A History; and Dividing the Spoils: the War for Alexander the Great’s Empire.
