Hannibal's Dynasty: Power and Politics in the Western Mediterranean, 247-183 BC, Issue 2005
Accessible and enlightening, Hannibal's Dynasty provides the full story of Carthage's achievement, going beyond the usual focus on Hannibal and military matters alone to look at a wide range of political and diplomatic issues too.
Dexter Hoyos shows how the aristocratic Barcid family won dominance in the free republic of Carthage, and how they exploited family connections to lead Carthage to greatness at home and abroad.
For students of Hannibal, his dynasty and his legacy - this is the book to read.
