Read full description of the books Sejarah dunia kuno: Dari cerita-cerita tertua sampai jatuhnya Roma:

Apa yang terlintas di benak kita ketika membaca ending sebuah buku seperti di atas? Dan bukan sembarang buku, melainkan sebuah buku sejarah dengan tebal nyaris 800 halaman? Pertama kali ketika saya menerima buku tersebut, setelah puas melihat judul, sinopsis, review dan acknowledgement-nya, saya langsung membuka (karena iseng, memang), halaman terakhir di mana terdapat kalimat terakhir dari ‘buku berat’ ini.

Waktu itu imaji yang terlintas di benak saya adalah sebuah ending yang ‘tidak biasa’ untuk sebuah buku sejarah, tidak datar, tidak monoton, tapi menyimpan sebuah ‘sisa akhir’ dari rangkaian aksi luar biasa sebelumnya, sekaligus menjanjikan sebuah ‘episode’ berikutnya yang lebih memukau. Seperti menonton bagian akhir dari Lord of The Rings episode pertama atau kedua. Ada kesan kepuasan, pemenuhan (accomplishment), dan pencerahan dari babak yang baru saja kita lewati. Sebuah ending yang sungguh ‘hidup.’

Kesan ini sesungguhnya memang terdapat di seluruh bagian buku The History of the Ancient World, From the Earliest Account to the Fall of Rome, karya penulis sejarah Susan Wise Bauer. Membaca karya Bauer ini seperti menonton sebuah film-film sejarah kolosal, seperti Alexander The Great atau Julius Caesar. Pembaca tidak dibiarkan berlama-lama larut dalam kebosanan membaca fakta-fakta sejarah seperti kejadian, tanggal, tahun dan nama pelaku.

Nama pelaku sejarah dalam buku ini tidak hanya sekadar nama untuk dihapalkan, melainkan mempunyai kekuatan pribadi, atau dengan kata lain, menjadi sebuah karakter penentu jalannya cerita. Kejadian pun bukan hanya diuraikan sebab akibatnya, melainkan dipaparkan dengan hidup, dilengkapi fakta-fakta lain yang biasanya diabaikan dalam buku sejarah lainnya, seperti peninggalan arkeologi, peta dan alur waktu (time line).

Bauer sendiri ketika diminta menulis ini cukup ragu-ragu. Bayangkan, dia (yang kini mengajar di College of William & Mary, Virginia, AS) harus menulis sebuah buku sejarah dunia lama yang komprehensif. Menurut penuturannya, siapa pun yang mendengar proyek yang ia kerjakan itu, pastilah akan menertawakannya.

Namun, berkat arahan dan support dari editornya di W.W. Norton, New York, Bauer menerima tantangan ini dan menuliskan semuanya dengan gaya naratif yang unik. Hasilnya? Sebuah buku tentang sejarah dunia lama yang sangat komprehensif (dan pasti tebal), namun tetap enak dibaca, bahkan oleh orang awam sekali pun.

From the author's website:

Publications
Susan’s newest book for Norton, The Story of Western Science: From the Writings of Aristotle to the Big Bang Theory, was published in May 2015. The History of the Renaissance World: From the Rediscovery of Aristotle to the Conquest of Constantinople (2013), is the third in a multi-volume series providing a narrative world history; the first volume, The History of the Ancient World: From the Earliest Accounts to the Fall of Rome, was published in 2007, and the second, The History of the Medieval World: From the Conversion of Constantine to the First Crusade was published in 2010. Her previous books include the academic title The Art of the Public Grovel: Sexual Sin and Confession in America (2008), published by Princeton University Press, and The Well-Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had , a guide to reading the classic works of fiction, poetry, history, autobiography, and drama (Norton, 2003). Norton also published The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (with co-author Jessie Wise); originally published in 1999, this bestselling guide to education in the classical tradition was revised and updated in 2004 and again in 2009. Susan has written a four-volume world history series for children, The Story of the World, published by Peace Hill Press (Volume 1, Ancient Times; Volume 2, The Middle Ages; Volume 3, Early Modern Times; and Volume 4, The Modern Age). She is currently at work on The Complete Writer, a K-12 writing program for home educators and private schools. Susan is also a contributing editor of Books & Culture and is preparing a lecture series for The Teaching Company.

Education
Susan’s parents taught her at home for most of elementary and middle school, and all of high school; she entered college at seventeen as a Presidential Scholar and National Merit finalist, and finished her B.A. in five semesters with a major in English, a minor in Greek and a summer spent studying twentieth century theology as a Visiting Student at Oxford. She went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where she added Hebrew and Aramaic to her languages. In 1994, she also completed the M.A. in English language and literature at the College of William and Mary in Virginia; her concentrations were in translation theory, seventeenth-century devotional poetry, and Psalm paraphrase in the Tudor period. Since 1994, Susan has taught writing and American literature at William & Mary, where she also received her Ph.D. in American Studies, with a major field in the history of American religion.

Personal
Susan was born in 1968, grew up in Virginia, and was educated at home by pioneering parents, back when home education was still unheard of. She learned Latin at age ten, worked as a professional musician while still in high school, and wrote three (unpublished!) novels before she turned sixteen. Since then, she has toured with a travelling drama group; galloped racehorses at a Virginia racetrack for spending money; taught horseback riding; worked in ghostwriting and newspaper ad sales; learned enough Korean to teach a Korean four-year-old Sunday school; and served as librarian and reading tutor for the Rita Welsh Adult Literacy Center in Williamsburg. Currently she runs Peace Hill Press, writes in a restored chicken shed, lectures on writing and history, helps run the farm, and cooks huge meals on a regular basis. Susan and her husband now live in rural Virginia, where Peter serves as the minister of a nondenominational church. They have three sons and a daughter; five dogs; three horses; three cats; and a variable number of chickens.
