THE BLOODY FUNNY HISTORY OF ROME 3 HAIL CAESAR! 446 PHOTOS, MAPS, ILLUSTRATIONS, AND CARTOONS. The Fall of the Roman Republic stars Marius, Sulla, Mithridates, Spartacus, Crassus, Cato, Catiline, Prettyboy Pulcher, Clodia, Lesbia, Cleopatra, Pompey and Caesar. Also featuring Lucan, Varro, Catullus, Seneca Rhetor, Thales, Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Zeno, Epicurus, Lucretius, Diogenes, Quintilian's illustrated guide to public speaking, and the complete works of Cicero. Totally laughable! "Witty and irreverent, but well-informed, I can well imagine its taking on a cult status with educated readers." W. Jeffrey Tatum, Professor of Classics, Florida State University. "Readers can expect much that is clever in combination with the odd gross moment. You'll quite literally find sex, drugs and rock-n-roll within these pages, but students of Roman history will recognize the depth of Clark's knowledge." Tom Stevenson, Professor of Classics and Ancient History, University of Queensland. "A heady mix of schoolboy history and Pythonesque humor. Seemingly, Clark is able to present every amusing anecdote from the entire Loeb Classical Library." James Grout, Encyclopaedia Romana. "Clark has a knack for bringing the obscure, bizarre, and deliciously titillating corners of Rome into full light. Bloody Funny? Bloody brilliant, I say!" Jeffery B. Knapp, Associate Professor of Humanities and Latin, Tallahassee Community College.
