Julius Caesar

by Adrian Goldsworthy
Sales price $64.95

Julius Caesar was one of the ablest generals of any era, who left accounts of his own campaigns that have rarely been surpassed in literary quality.  At the same time, he was a politician and statesman who eventually took supreme power in the Roman Republic and made himself a monarch in every practical respect, although he never took the name of king.  Caesar was not a cruel ruler and paraded his clemency to his defeated enemies, but in the end, he was stabbed to death as a result of a conspiracy led by two pardoned men, which also included many of his own supporters.  Caesar: Life of a Colossus is an authoritative and exciting portrait of Julius Caesar and his times by one of the leading modern scholars of the Roman world.
