Polybius Polybius was a Greek historian of the Hellenistic period born in Megalopolis, Arcadia ( B. C). He was the son of Lycortas, also a Greek Politician who became the Cavalry commander of the Achaean league (a Hellenistic period of alliance between Greek city states on the northern and central Peloponnese). In the VIth Book of his Histories, written to explain Rome’s rise to what today’s geopolitical inarticulates would term "hyperpowerdom"’ or "full spectrum dominance," the Greek statesman and historian, Polybius, outlined his theory of the cycle of political revolution. In his schema, there successively arose three "good" forms of government — kingship, aristocracy, and democracy.

This volume contains Books 3 and 4. They cover the beginning of the Second Punic War up through the Battle of Cannae. The fourth book covers the Greek events while Rome is at war. This section includes events that Polybius and his father actually witnessed. This is the beginning of the history s: 1. Books. An illustration of two cells of a film strip. Video.

The sprightly retiree — who ended up succumbing to his injuries — was Polybius, the great historian and chronicler of the Punic Wars. Born into the highest echelons of Greek aristocracy, Polybius lived a life worthy of Odysseus, or perhaps of .   Polybius’ origins as a servant of the Achaean League is interesting in part because he offers a vision of international politics between world domination and total anarchy—a sophisticated alliance system of similar democratic regimes that fended off, on both the strategic and diplomatic level, domination by the more powerful Sparta, Macedon.

  Books I through V of The Histories are the introduction for the years during his lifetime, describing the politics in each powerful nation, including ancient Greece and Egypt. In Book VI, Polybius describes the way of the Romans; he discusses the powers of the different parts of the republic, as well as the rights of the plebeian. Polybius's theme is how and why the Romans spread their power as they did. The main part of his history covers the years BC, describing the rise of Rome, the destruction of Carthage, and the eventual domination of the Greek world. It is a vital achievement despite the incomplete survival of all but the first five of forty books.
