Beschreibung

Caesar's Legacy recounts the rise to power of Rome's first emperor, Augustus, by focusing on how the bloody civil wars which he and his soldiers fought transformed the lives of men and women throughout the Mediterranean world and beyond. It shows how, during this violent period, Romans came to accept a new form of government and found ways to celebrate it in their towns and cities. Yet they also mourned, in literary masterpieces and stories passed on to their children, the terrible losses that accompanied the long years of fighting.

Pressestimmen

'By close and intelligent readings of very different types of contemporary evidence, Osgood makes the reader understand the horror of those years in the lives of ordinary Romans. His mastery of a very wide range of modern scholarship is matched by an admirably direct and accessible style. Caesar's Legacy is a historical work of real distinction.' Times Literary Supplement '... a fine achievement ... A vision of the triumviral period now exists where none existed before. In his first book, Mr Osgood provides an admirable demonstration of original scholarship, and he is to be warmly congratulated.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review '... an important book ...' Journal of Classics Teaching '... an important contribution to late-republican scholarship, and a captivating read for any Roman historian.' L'Antiquite Classique
