Product description

Review

"Eck has produced a second edition of The Age of Augustus good news, especially as this is not just the same lucid book of 2003 with additional bibliography, but has a new chapter, a section on the German wars, and new illustrative material, growing by more than forty pages." ( Greece & Rome , 2008) Praise for the first edition: [Eck s] narrative (in this fine translation) is readable, rarely obscure and fluently glosses difficult terms and concepts in a way that obviates the need for a glossary. Moreover, he skillfully handles difficult constitutional matters without confusing the beginner, points out controversial issues, and marks his divergences with current scholarly opinion. (Bryn Mawr Classical Review) The book provides a narrative of Augustus achievements and expenditures on behalf of the Roman res publica Eck is of course a recognized authority. He is the pre–eminent Roman administrative historian, prosopographer, and epigraphist of our time. (The Classical Journal)

From the Back Cover

This concise biography tells the extraordinary story of Augustus, Rome s first monarch. It traces the history of the Roman revolution and Rome s transformation from a republic to an empire.

Werner Eck provides a vivid narrative of Augustus rise to power. From the war against the assassins of Julius Caesar to his struggle against Antony and Cleopatra, this book describes the key aspects of Augustus reign and the expansion of his empire.

This updated edition includes a stemma of Augustus family, new information on the monuments of the Augustan period, a new chapter on legislation, a section on the Augustan wars against the German tribes, and additional maps and illustrations. Organized chronologically and according to specific topics, The Age of Augustus is an ideal resource for anyone approaching the subject for the first time.
