Caesar's Legacy by Josiah Osgood
Book DescriptionIn April 44 BC the eighteen-year-old Gaius Octavius landed in Italy and launched his take-over of the Roman world. Defeating first Caesar's assassins, then the son of Pompey the Great, and finally Antony and the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, he dismantled the old Republic, took on the new name 'Augustus', and ruled forty years more with his equally remarkable wife Livia. Caesar's Legacy grippingly retells the story of Augustus' rise to power by focusing on how the bloody civil wars which he and his soldiers fought transformed the lives of men and women throughout the Mediterranean world and beyond. During this violent period citizens of Rome and provincials came to accept a new form of government and found ways to celebrate it. Yet they also mourned, in literary masterpieces and stories passed on to their children, the terrible losses they endured throughout the long years of fighting.

Books By Author Josiah Osgood
Turia, Hardback (August 2014)
A reconstruction of the remarkable life of a woman who became a combatant in the civil wars that ended the Roman Republic, Turia shows how her life can shed light on Roman women's contribution to their society and the ways in which men came to recognize them.
Companion to Persius and Juvenal, Hardback (September 2012)
Satire, written in the verse of heroic epic but focused on the evils of contemporary society, was ancient Rome's original contribution to world literature. Two great practitioners of this art, Persius and Juvenal, wrote under the early emperors. Inspired by their Republican predecessors, both radically reinvented the genre.
