IN SEARCH OF ANCIENT NORTH AFRICA

BARNABY ROGERSON    Book Number: 86510    Product format: Hardback

For over 40 years, Barnaby Rogerson has travelled through North Africa, making sense of the region's complex and fascinating history which he tells through the lives of five men and one woman. Queen Dido was a sacrificial refugee; King Juba II a prisoner of war who became a compliant tool of the Roman Empire; Septimius Severus an unpromising provincial who, as Emperor, brought the empire to its dazzling apogee; St Augustine an intellectual careerist who became a bishop and a saint; Hannibal the greatest general the world has ever known; and Masinissa who eventually defeated him. Historian John Julius Norwich said of this book that Rogerson "has succeeded in isolating all the different strands of North African history" and as we explore ruins which tell their own tales, we appreciate the multiple interconnections that binds the culture of this region with the wider world, particularly the spiritual traditions of the ancient Near East. Very well illustrated throughout, 336 glamorous pages.
