|Summary, etc.:||BIOGRAPHY & AUTOBIOGRAPHY: HISTORICAL, POLITICAL & MILITARY. An unforgettable depiction of the Roman empire at the height of its power and reach, and an elegantly sensational retelling of the lives and times of the twelve Caesars. One of the them was a military genius, one murdered his mother and fiddled while Rome burned, another earned the nickname "sphincter artist." Six of their number were assassinated, two committed suicide--and five of them were elevated to the status of gods. They have come down to posterity as the "twelve Caesars"--Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian. Under their rule, from 49 BC to AD 96, Rome was transformed from a republic to an empire, whose model of regal autocracy would survive in the West for more than a thousand years.|
