More than two thousand years after his death, Julius Caesar remains one of the great figures of history. He shaped Rome for generations, and his name became a synonym for "emperor" -- not only in Rome but as far away as Germany and Russia. He is best known as the general who defeated the Gauls and doubled the size of Rome's territories. But, as Philip Freeman describes in this fascinating new biography, Caesar was also a brilliant orator, an accomplished writer, a skilled politician, and much more. Julius Caesar was a complex man, both hero and villain. He possessed great courage, ambition, honor, and vanity. Born into a noble family that had long been in decline, he advanced his career cunningly, beginning as a priest and eventually becoming Rome's leading general. He made alliances with his rivals and then discarded them when it suited him. He was a spokesman for the ordinary people of Rome, who rallied around him time and again, but he profited enormously from his conquests and lived opulently. Eventually he was murdered in one of the most famous assassinations in history. Caesar's contemporaries included some of Rome's most famous figures, from the generals Marius, Sulla, and Pompey to the orator and legislator Cicero as well as the young politicians Mark Antony and Octavius (later Caesar Augustus). Caesar's legendary romance with the Egyptian queen Cleopatra still fascinates us today. In this splendid biography, Freeman presents Caesar in all his dimensions and contradictions. With remarkable clarity and brevity, Freeman shows how Caesar dominated a newly powerful Rome and shaped its destiny. This book will captivate readers discovering Caesar and ancient Rome for the first time as well as those who have a deep interest in the classical world.

Julius Caesar - used book

ISBN: 0743289536

Elegant, learned and compulsively readable, Julius Caesar moves from broad sweep to brilliant detail". Barry Strauss - Professor of History and Classics, Cornell University Julius Caesar is highly regarded today as a military strategist and tactician, and as the ambitious conqueror who expanded Roman territory several times over. Less well known is Caesar the man - his early years spent as a priest, his first marriage to General Cinna's Daughter, his refusal to divorce his wife under threat of death during a civil war, his decision to join the army and his devotion to his family. Julius Caesar is a comprehensive work that touches all the important aspects of his life without miring readers in unnecessary details. Indisputably one of the most fascinating leaders in history, he is immersed in contradictions: a virtual dictator who continued to act on behalf of the plebeians and an intellectual who was capable of cruel vengeance. Philip Freeman, a distinguished classicist and brilliantly insightful author, describes Caesar in all his complexity, creating a stunning and engaging work that is destined to be a classic. Philip Freeman, a distinguished classicist and brilliantly insightful author, describes Caesar in all his complexity, creating a stunning and engaging work that is destined to be a classic.
