Here he provides sharp and succinct biographies of the greatest statesmen of this turbulent period. Whether describing the power struggle between Marius and Sulla, the battle between Crassus and Spartacus, the death of political idealist Cato, Julius Caesar's brilliant but bloody triumph in Gaul or the eloquent oratory of Cicero, all these accounts offer a fascinating insight into an empire wracked by political divisions. Deeply influential for Shakespeare and many other later writers, the lives continue to intrigue with their exploration of corruption, decadence and the struggle for ultimate power."--Back cover.
