This work pulls together many sources and summarizes them. It provides details and info on some of the more obscure rulers, especially during the chaotic 3rd Century A.D. and later empire. This book is a must for anyone interested in Ancient Rome

Each chapter briefly overviews the biographical history of each of Rome's great and notorious emporer's. The fluidity of the text is marvelous as it not only tells the story of each individual but offers a succint history of Imperial Rome. I would recommend this book to anyone who is about to embark on a study of the Empire.
