Basing his argument on many years of research, Canfora focuses on what we actually know about Caesar, the man of politics and war, in a narrative chronologically structured around the events in Caesar's life. The result is a full biographical portrait of the dictator whose mission of Romanization lies at the very heart of modern Europe."--Jacket." ;
