Publisher's full black cloth, gilt lettering on spine. 8vo. xi, (i), 282 pp. llustrated with 38 black & white photographs on 16 pages and four maps. Includes Notes; Bibliography; Genealogical Tables; Dates of the Twelve Caesars; Dates of Subsequent Emperors; and Index. "The personalities of the Twelve Caesars at Rome, Julius Caesar and the first eleven Roman emperors who followed him, have profoundly impressed themselves upon the world. In this classic example of the unique blend of scholarship and readability that has made him one of the most popular authors of ancient history, Michael Grant penetrates the fog of rumor and speculation surrounding these dynamic leaders, and explores the biographer Suetonius' claims about their sexual abnormalities and other aberrations." "The Twelve Caesars bore the perilous responsibility of governing an empire comparable in its magnitude to the United States today. It is a timeless concern of mankind to measure the power that such men, and their advisors, wield. For example, are we justified after a study of Tacitus in applying to the Roman Caesars Lord Acton's saying that "absolute power corrupts absolutely?" This is one of a number of questions, relating to their exercise of authority, that Michael Grant endeavors to answer in this timeless work. "Michael Grant, one of the world's greatest writers on ancient history, has been a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge; Professor of Humanities at the University of Edinburgh; President and Vice-Chancellor of the Queen's University, Belfast; Vice-Chancellor of the University of Khartoum; and President of the Classical Association and the Virgil Society.

Papermac, 1990 9780333432259. Ex-library book, so the usual stamps and labels on the front and reverse of the title page - otherwise a VG paperback. 380 pages. B/w photographs. The author, a nephew of Robert Graves, wrote three volumes of biography about his uncle, the author of books such as I, Claudius and Goodbye To All That. This book covers the middle years from 1926 to 1940, during which he produced some of his best work, including the two books mentioned above. It was a tempetuous period in his personal life - Laura Riding became his mistress, then part of a menage a trois with his and his wife, then a menage a quatre. As the blurb says "This penetrating portrait of a complex partnership and its eventual disintegration is inextricably bound up with Graves's development as an artist." ., Papermac, 1990 9780333432259, Pen & Sword.

The Twelve Caesars - used book

ID: 2274355

The personalities of the Twelve Caesars of ancient Rome - Julius Caesar and the first eleven Roman emperors who followed him - have profoundly impressed themselves upon the world. They formed the theme of the great Roman biographer Suetonius, who had much to say about their sexual and other aberrations, which have been the subject of countless legends and bizarre fantasies. In this book Michael Grant attempts to penetrate the fog of superstition and rumour that has gathered around these astonishingly powerful men and investigates how they wielded such vast might, how they coped or failed with their task, and considers the effects their intensely demanding public careers had on their private lives. He questions the truth of the many stories which have suggested that the Caesars were consumed by erotic eccentricities, and he asks to what extent we are justified, after a study of the scorching pages of Tacitus, in applying to the Roman Caesars Lord Actor's saying that absolute power corrupts absolutely. ancient,biographies,europe,historical,history,humanities,rome,textbooks Humanities, Scribner
