The struggle to the death between the Carthaginians and the Romans was one of the defining dramas of the ancient world. In an epic series of land and sea battles, both sides came close to victory before the Carthaginians finally succumbed and their capital city, history, and culture were almost utterly erased. Drawing on a wealth of new archaeological research, Richard Miles vividly brings to life this lost empire--from its origins among the Phoenician settlements of Lebanon to its apotheosis as the greatest sea power in the Mediterranean. And at the heart of the history of Carthage lies the extraordinary figure of Hannibal--the scourge of Rome and one of the greatest military leaders, but a man who also unwittingly led his people to catastrophe.--From publisher description.… (mehr)

Interesting. ( )

An good overview of Carthage and the Phoenician culture which gave rise to it. The writing is serviceable and the history is limited by the paucity of Punic sources. Thus, the book reads like a history of Roman responses to Carthagian actions. Nonetheless, this is likely the most we can hope for. The early chapters on Phoenicia are especially valuable. ( )

The book aims to do something interesting, that is to be written from the perspective of Carthage rather than Rome. There's some inherent difficulties with this undertaking (that the book acknowledges) that is that most of Carthage's history is written by either Rome or sources that have an ax to grind against Carthage. The main strengths of the book are that it includes in addition to ancient sources, modern archaeological evidence and modern scholarship. The main weaknesses, are that much of the book is speculative, and it accepts certain ancient sources while rejecting others in ways that seem arbitrary, additionally the book is driven by themes and ideology while much of the evidence mustered to defend these themes and ideologies are rather ambitious. Enjoyable read, but probably more for the history buff than the history major. ( )

After learning about Hannibal crossing the Alps, the love affair between Dido and Aeneas, and other stories about the rivalry between Rome and Carthage, I had to read a book titled "Carthage Must Be Destroyed." I have a vague memory of reading and translating pats of Cato's speech in Latin class. Miles book filled gaps in my knowledge: I knew Carthage had been founded by Phoenicians, but all I really knew before reading was that Phoenicians made purple dye and were famous for it. Miles educated me with his in-depth look at the rise of the Phoenician cities, their culture and their interactions with contemporary states. After reading portions of the Aeneid in Latin class, I was surprised to learn that Carthage was founded, in its own legend, by a woman, who like Dido committed suicide. On a more historical note, Miles explains how Hannibal crossed the Alps with his elephants, and why this was such a major part of his legend. ( )

Epic in stature. A beautiful, illuminating work that stretches one millenium across the strands of time. Hannibal. Cato. Scipio. Bastards, all. ( )

"An ambitious scholarly work spanning eight centuries, from 150 years before the founding of Carthage by Phoenicians to its obliteration by the Romans in 146 BCE."

"Drawing deeply upon fresh archeological evidence, Miles dynamically recreates daily life in ancient Carthage by examining the numerous inscriptions and monuments that bring to life the religious and public rituals of the city's inhabitants."

Bertolt Brecht found in Carthage a metaphor for German hubris: "Great Carthage drove three wars. After the first one it was still powerful. After the second one it was still inhabitable. After the third one it was no longer possible to find her." Luckily, Miles has found more than enough of her in this fascinating read.

This fine book is an extended study of Rome’s Other, the north African Phoenician colony of Carthage ( kart hadasht , “new town”), by a young Cambridge scholar who has been excavating the site for some years now and has taken the opportunity to produce a general historical and cultural study of the city-state which gave Rome such a run for its money.

Carthage had been under siege for nearly three years, when one day during the spring of 146 BC the Roman commander, Scipio Aemilianus, ordered the final assault on the stricken city and it increasingly desperate inhabitants.
