Publisher Comments:

As politician and diplomat, writer and lover, but above all as a military genius, Julius Caesar is one of the perennially fascinating figures in history—Boswell called him ”the greatest man of any age.” Christian Meiers authoritative and accessible biography is the definitive modern account of Caesars life and career, setting Caesars life story against the rich political and social background of the Late Roman Republic.

Internationally renowned historian Christian Meier explores these questions in the most authoritative and accessible account of Caesar's life, career, and legacy.
