‘ROME -A History in Seven Sackings-’

By Matthew Kneale

Atlantic Books           

I would recommend this book to anyone travelling to Rome or even just someone with an interest in European history since Rome went from the centre of one of the biggest European empires ever to being the city of the influential popes and the capital of modern Italy! The only drawback is that the book is centred around sackings, and, therefore, sometimes it was hard to put events into a broader perspective.
