2.0 out of 5 stars Caligula, 10 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Caligula (Lancaster Pamphlets in Ancient History) (Paperback)
I found this book very disappointing. The author has tried to turn history on its head by looking at one aspect of Caligulas life and making him out to be victimised by those he opposed ie the Senate and wealthy. All of history's biographers and sources have been said to have been heavily biased against Caligula. Whilst the author does have some good points and mabye Caligula's worst points have been exagerated. In my view he has spoiled these by applying the theory of gross exageration and bias to everything. Surely in this case there was no smoke without fire.
