From the Inside Flap
A fluid, distinctive, and highly intelligent portrait of Caesar in his times.”Clifford Ando, author of Imperial Ideology and Provincial Loyalty in the Roman Empire
Master of the complex source material and at home in the vast secondary literature, Canfora has used his experience with communism to construct a subtle, original quest for the real Caesar,’ the proletarian dictator. The book can only enrich research and teaching.”William M. Calder III, William Abbott Oldfather Professor of the Classics and Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign
