Augustus 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Very good book on Augustus' acheivments and the succession problem of Tiberius. Puts Augustus more as a person who had to adapt to the changes around him rather than a brilliant man who just happened to create the foundation of the roman empire. All round very good, but not too political. More of a social-militaristic book.
