"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.

"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?"
