Read full description of the books:
The twelve Caesars of ancient Rome (Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian) form a fabulous series. The themes of countless legends, these men were infamously depicted in Suetonius's Lives of the Caesars as strange at best and hideously villainous at worst. Delving into the personalities of these rulers, classical historian Michael Grant attempts to sort fact from rumor and to determine how each of these men used their unlimited authority. Black-and white illustrations.

Read information about the authorMichael Grant was an English classisist, numismatist, and author of numerous popular books on ancient history. His 1956 translation of Tacitus’s Annals of Imperial Rome remains a standard of the work. He once described himself as "one of the very few freelances in the field of ancient history: a rare phenomenon". As a popularizer, his hallmarks were his prolific output and his unwillingness to oversimplify or talk down to his readership.
