Julius Caesar : a life by Antony Kamm( file )
19 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 633 libraries worldwide
This is a fresh account of Julius Caesar - a brilliant politician and intriguing figure who became sole ruler of the Roman Empire. "Julius Caesar" examines key figures such as Marius, Sulla, Cicero, Mark Antony, Gaius Octavius (emperor Augustus), Calpurnia and Cleopatra, as well as the unnamed warriors who fought for and against him, and politicians who supported and opposed him. Including new translations from classical sources, Antony Kamm sets Caesar's life against the historical, political and social background of the times and addresses key issues: did Caesar destroy the Republic? What was the legality of his position and the moral justifications of his actions? How good general was he? What was his relationship with Cleopatra? Why was he assassinated? What happened next? This is Caesar - the lavish spender, the military strategist, a considerable orater and historical writer, and probably the most influential figure of his time - in all his historical glory. Students of Rome and its figures will find this an enthralling, eye-opening addition to their course reading

The last frontier : the Roman invasions of Scotland by Antony Kamm( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 186 libraries worldwide
"Ancient Scotland, then occupied by Celtic settlers, never became part of the Roman empire, in spite of being invaded on what is now accepted as four, rather than three, occasions. The northernmost frontier of the empire was fortified for only a few years after the battle of Mons Graupius in AD 84, when the Caledonians were defeated by Gnaeus Julius Agricola. An alternative frontier, represented by the elaborate defences of the Antonine Wall, was built in about 142. It was maintained hardly longer than 25 years, and by 180 the Roman invaders had retreated back to Hadrian's Wall. After further Celtic activity, a temporary truce was negotiated personally by the emperor Septimius Severus in 209. Thereafter, until their empire began to collapse, the Romans maintained a fragile hold on Hadrian's Wall in the face of furious attacks by marauding Picts and Scots, and a combined operation by land and sea in 367 against the whole of Roman Britain, by the northern Celts in an alliance with the Franks and Saxons."--BOOK JACKET
