    Is Pax Romana by Adrian goldsworthy worth reading if..

    I have already read his books, Caeser, Augustus, The Fall of Carthage, how Rome Fell and his book on roman warfare? I really enjoy his writing but I don't want to buy something if most of the material is already covered in those books.
