a fascinating new look at a possibly not-so-mad emperor,
This review is from: Caligula: A Biography (Hardcover)
A scholarly but interestingly new approach to a fascinating topic, this accessibly written book is thought-provoking and paradigm-changing. The author's unique theory, that Caligula was not insane but painted that way by historians and others who were burnt by his disregard for established aristocratic niceties, is convincingly argued and ultimately intriguing. Highly recommended!
