Synopsis

Author and historian Tom Holland returns to his roots in Roman history and the audience he cultivated with Rubiconhis masterful, witty, brilliantly researched popular history of the fall of the Roman republicwith Dynasty, a luridly fascinating history of the reign of the first five Roman emperors. Dynasty continues Rubicons story, opening where that book ended: with the murder of Julius Caesar. This is the period of the first and perhaps greatest Roman emperors. Its a colorful story of rule and ruination, from the rise of Augustus to the death of Nero. Hollands expansive history also has distinct shades of I, Claudius, with five wonderfully vivid (and in three cases, thoroughly depraved) emperorsAugustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, and Nerofeatured, along with numerous fascinating secondary characters. Intrigue, murder, naked ambition and treachery, greed, gluttony, lust, incest, pageantry, decadencethe tale of these five Caesars continues to cast a mesmerizing spell across the millennia.
