Viscount James Bryce The History of the Holy Roman Empire: 1st Century A.D. - 19th Century


The main goal of this edition is to present the Holy Roman Empire as an institution or system, the wonderful offspring of a body of beliefs and traditions which have passed away from the world. Such a description, however, would not be intelligible without some account of the great events which accompanied the growth and decay of imperial power; and it has therefore appeared best to give the book the form rather of a narrative than of a dissertation; and to combine with an exposition of what may be called the theory of the Empire an outline of the political history of Germany, as well as some notices of the affairs of medieval Italy. The Roman Empire Before the Invasion of the Barbarians The Barbarian Invasions Restoration of the Empire in the West Empire and Policy of Charles Carolingian and Italian Emperors Theory of the Mediæval Empire The Roman Empire and the German Kingdom Saxon and Franconian Emperors Struggle of the Empire and the Papacy The Emperors in Italy: Frederick Barbarossa Imperial Titles and Pretensions Fall of the Hohenstaufen The Germanic Constitution—the Seven Electors The Empire as an International Power The City of Rome in the Middle Ages The Renaissance: Change in the Character of the Empire The Reformation and Its Effects Upon the Empire The Peace of Westphalia: Last Stage in the Decline of the Empire Fall of the Empire

John S. C. Abbott The History of the Austrian Empire


History of the Austrian Empire embraces all that is wild and wonderful in history; early struggles for aggrandizement, the fierce strife with the Turks, as wave after wave of Muslim invasion rolled up the Danube, the long conflicts and bloody persecutions of the Reformation, the thirty years' religious war, the intrigues of Popes, the enormous pride, power and encroachments of Louis XIV, the warfare of the Spanish succession and the Polish dismemberment. All these events combine in a sublime tragedy which fiction may in vain attempt to parallel.

Tacitus The Histories & The Annals


"The Histories" is a Roman historical chronicle and it covers the Year of Four Emperors following the downfall of Nero in 68 AD, a year in the history of the Roman Empire in which four emperors ruled in succession: Galba, Otho, Vitellius, and Vespasian. The mode of their accession showed that because imperial power was based on the support of the legions, an emperor could now be chosen not only at Rome, but anywhere in the empire where sufficient legions were amassed. The style of narration is rapid, reflecting the speed of the events. The narrative rhythm leaves no space to slow down or digress. To write effectively in this style, Tacitus had to summarize substantial information from his sources. "The Annals" is a history of the Roman Empire from the death of Augustus to that of Nero, the years AD 14–68, covering the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero. As a senator, Tacitus had access to Acta Senatus, the Roman senate's records, thus providing a solid basis for his work. Along with The Histories, The Annals provide a key source for modern understanding of the history of the Roman Empire during the 1st century AD.

John Keay The Honourable Company


A history of the English East India company.During 200 years the East India Company grew from a loose association of Elizabethan tradesmen into «the grandest society of merchants in the universe». As a commercial enterprise it came to control half the world's trade and as a political entity it administered an embryonic empire. Without it there would have been no British India and no British Empire. In a tapestry ranging from Southern Africa to north-west America, and from the reign of Elizabeth I to that of Victoria, bizarre locations and roguish personality abound. From Bombay to Singapore and Hong Kong the political geography of today is, in some respects, the result of the Company. This book looks at the history of the East India Company.
