"Elegant, learned and compulsively readable, Julius Caesar moves from broad sweep to brilliant detail". Barry Strauss - Professor of History and Classics, Cornell University Julius Caesar is highly regarded today as a military strategist and tactician, and as the ambitious conqueror who expanded Roman territory several times over. Less well known is Caesar the man - his early years spent as a priest, his first marriage to General Cinna's Daughter, his refusal to divorce his wife under threat of death during a civil war, his decision to join the army and his devotion to his family. Julius Caesar is a comprehensive work that touches all the important aspects of his life without miring readers in unnecessary details. Indisputably one of the most fascinating leaders in history, he is immersed in contradictions: a virtual dictator who continued to act on behalf of the plebeians and an intellectual who was capable of cruel vengeance. Philip Freeman, a distinguished classicist and brilliantly insightful author, describes Caesar in all his complexity, creating a stunning and engaging work that is destined to be a classic. Philip Freeman, a distinguished classicist and brilliantly insightful author, describes Caesar in all his complexity, creating a stunning and engaging work that is destined to be a classic.

Philip Freeman is the author of five books on classical, Irish and Celtic history and is the Qualley Chair of Classics at Luther College, Iowa and recipient of numerous fellowships in the US and Europe.
