Abstract:

Imperator Caesar Augustus was one of the greatest figures of one of mankind's greatest ages. As Rome's first emperor, he transformed the unruly Roman Republic into the greatest empire the world had ever seen. His consolidation and expansion of the Roman power two thousand years ago laid the foundations, literally, for all of Western history to come. Yet Augustus himself remains a shadowy figure. Much has been written about his achievements, but his inner world has remained remarkably obsure. Now at least we have a book that brings this momentous figure to life.--
