Summary:
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.
