"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?" This is one of a number of questions, relating to their exercise of authority, that Michael Grant endeavors to answer in this timeless work.

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
