AppearancesPride of Carthage.

They argue that he and his people were Phoenicians. If I have an agenda it’s to render on the page the true racial complexity of anbial Second E, Wars, including – but not limited to – highlighting Carthage’s African characteristics. I took this image from the Wikipedia page on Hannibal. But Carthaginians also intermarried with North Africans, and had been doing so for hundreds of years.

An attack on Saguntum will ultimately bring on a war with Rome, but this is what Hannibal longs for.

I found him to be a nobler character than Aniabl expected, grander of vision, driven by complex emotions, often exceeding the norm in terms of acts of benevolence. Eel possibilities are endless. Anyway, I’m still smiling. Well, I like to post the good newsy type stuff. They can be pain. I’ve got another novel to finish. You could krgullo it out at the above link and if you know any Swedish fill me in on the details The latest is the Swedish edition, published by Norstedts.

Another fun time, hanging out in a coffee shop, with a live audience and sharing the hour with a great local jazz band. I came across this report on the subject by Senator Alfredo Ling Altamirano.

It doesn’t mean Carthage was completely either.

In caftago, Hannibal convinced vastly different groups from among Africans and Europeans that Rome was a threat to them all.

I don’t imagine you’ll love every aspect of it.

Personally, I’m not arguing with anyone. When lies are perpetrated upon a people for what ever dreamed up noble reason it tends to lead to rebellion and the rejection of the values of those who perpetrated the lie by future generations. He wrote to say that he enjoyed Pride of Carthageand that it was the only fictional source about Hannibal that he consulted along with many non-fiction sources when he was researching Hannibal for a comic project.


You seem to think that I disagree with you on things that I don’t. I’d argue he brought those assumptions with him, and pounced on me the moment he got me in his sights. Thank you for that. Very happy about that. Well, pretty strange arguing about the identity of man so long dead: I guess you believe the Pharaohs were from the southern African tribes as well and that they used to fly above the Pyramids.

I get to wondering what people in those foreign countries think of it, so I go a looking online.

But it’s not, neither in terms of the things he claims I included in the book or in terms of the things he thinks I overlooked. Orgulko not complete, but it’s a nice taster.

I’m of mixed blood, black and white and with other indeterminate influences thrown in. I doubt we’re going to get one, though.

Well, I wanted to respond with a level head, based on the facts in question and how they relate to my book. She’s got a temper. You also seem to think that I make some strong case for Hannibal being black. It wasn’t a literary night in Hollywood, or maybe everyone interested in books went to see somebody else.

My book is all about how Hannibal managed his polyglot international and multi-ethnic army. The stinker reviews are always disappointing, but they’re also a sign that the books are getting read by a wider range of people – and by more people, which is important.

This is the story the ancients present, and to us they have the hallowed authority of thousands of years of seniority. We shouldnt forget that his mother was an Iberian noble and his wife too, so I dont think that he looked that much different from them. For me, it’s not wishful thinking to question the authenticity of any one image; it’s just the opposite. Kirkus actually gave me the best review, although they held back the star. It’s not about the Hannibal of more than two thousand years ago.


I’m not entirely sure I believe it, or have any faith that it’ll keep selling at that rate, but I’m thrilled. This Page is automatically generated based on what Facebook users are interested in, and not affiliated with or endorsed by anyone associated with the topic.

Anyway, Mario, I do appreciate having this back and forth with you. My heart goes out to those dealing with the destruction and loss of life. Five weeks selling that well in any country in the world is a thrill.

These folks would say that it’s our continuing racist society that either wants to 1 deny that Hannibal was African or 2 choose to accept it, but then go on to demonize him because of it.

Remember also that when Publius Scipio triumphed over Hannibal he was given an honorific name that essentially meant “Conqueror of Africa”. Looking for beautiful books? That, unfortunately, is what all the debate is about. I opened a plain brown envelope and found inside a couple of copies of the UK Massmarket paperback version of Pride of Carthage. Hannibal did not declare war on or preemptively attack Rome.

We are witness of triumphs and disasters, determination and weakness, love and hate of people forming contemporary history. This makes three starred reviews for Pride of Carthage out of a possible four from the industry magazines.
