'Overall, this book brings a unique perspective to current scholarship in this area, not in the least that it is the only extensive English-language study in this area to date. Rutledge is meticulous in his discussion of the primary source materials, the information contained within them, and his overall knowledge and perceptions regarding the bias and opinions related by both primary and secondary source authors. This books is essential to any scholar of Roman history from the first century BC to the first century AD.' - Brad Eden, University of Nevada

at the dark side of the classical world. Rutledge takes
the reader on a journey into the seedy side of Imperial
Rome, one that few classicists are willing to tackle.
Written in a lucid style, Rutledge has placed himself
at the center of the current debate on authority and
imperium. Even at over 400 pages, I could not put
it down. Read it!
