The histories by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

192 editions published between 1852 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In AD 68 Nero's suicide marked the end of the first dynasty of imperial Rome. The following year was one of drama and danger. In the surviving books of his Histories the barrister-historian Tacitus, writing some thirty years after the events he describes, gives a detailed account of the 'long but single year' when four emperors emerged in succession: Galba, the martinet; Otho, conspirator and dandy; Vitellius, the unambitious hedonist; and the ultimate victor, Vespasian, who established the Flavian dynasty. With great vividness and emotional power, Tacitus' gripping narrative lays bare corruption, injustice and folly, and sheds lasting light on the nature of power. This revised version of Kenneth Wellesley's translation has sensitively updated it to render it more accessible to the modern reader. This edition contains a new introduction by Rhiannon Ash discussing Tacitus' life and his contemporary audience, a note on the text, further reading, a glossary of place and peoples, expanded notes and a chronology"--Page 4 of cover

Tacitus' 'Annals' recounts the major historical events from the years shortly before the death of Augustus to the death of Nero in AD 68. Despite his claim that the 'Annals' were written objectively, Tacitus' account is sharply critical of the emperors' excesses and fearful for the future of imperial Rome

Agricola ; and Germany by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

42 editions published between 1781 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cornelius Tacitus, Rome's greatest historian and the last major writer of classical Latin prose, produced his first two books in AD 98. He was inspired to take up his pen when the assassination of Domitian ended 'fifteen years of enforced silence'. These first products were brief: the biography of his late father-in-law Julius Agricola and an account of Rome's most dangerous enemies, the Germans. As governor for seven years, Agricola had completed the conquest of Britain and much of Tacitus' biography is devoted to the country and its people. Germany is the only surviving specimen from the ancient world of an ethnographic study. Each of these early works has had immense influence on our perception of Rome and the northern 'barbarians'." "This newly translated edition reflects recent research in Roman-British and Roman-German history, including recently discovered evidence on Tacitus' early career."--Jacket
The annals : the reigns of Tiberius, Claudius, and Nero by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a lively new translation of Cornelius Tacitus' timeless history of three of Rome's most memorable emperors. Tacitus, who condemns the depravity of these rulers, which he saw as proof of the corrupting force of absolute power, writes caustically of the brutal and lecherous Tiberius, the weak and cuckolded Claudius, and "the artist" Nero. In particular, his gripping account of the bloody reigns of Tiberius and Nero brims with plots, murder, poisoning, suicide, uprisings, death, and destruction. The Annals also provides a vivid account of the violent suppression of the revolt led by Boudicca in Britain, the great fire of Rome under Nero, and the subsequent bloody persecution of the Christians. J.C. Yardley's translation is vivid without sacrificing accuracy, and is based on the recent Latin Heubner text, with variations noted in an appendix. Anthony A. Barrett's introduction and notes provide invaluable historical and cultural context. This superb edition also includes maps, a glossary of Roman terms and place names, and a full index of names and places. - Publisher
