Sulla by Arthur Keaveney
Book DescriptionIn this second edition of Arthur Keaveney's classic biography, a fresh generation of students, scholars and readers are introduced to one of the most pivotal figures in the outgoing Roman Empire. A definitive book in its field, this second edition is a must read. Completely rewritten and updated to include the further discoveries of the last two decades, it challenges traditional views of Sulla as a tyrant and harsh military dictator and instead delivers a compellingly complex portrait of a man obsessed with the belief that he was blessed with divine favour. Written by a leading authority on the classical world, this lively and entertaining book transports us through Sulla's rise from poverty and obscurity to his dictatorship of Rome, highlighting his dedication and achievements in better ordering the Republic before his decline a generation later.

Books By Author Arthur Keaveney
Army in the Roman Revolution, Hardback (May 2007)
The Roman Revolution is one of the most momentous periods of change in history, in which an imperial but quasidemocratic power changed into an autocracy. This book studies the way the Roman army changed in the last years of the Republic, so that an army of imperial conquest became a set of rival personal armies under the control of the triumvirs.
Sulla, Paperback (April 2005)
This is a biography of one of the most controversial figures of antiquity. Sulla was the great general who became dictator of Rome and ushered in the period of the Civil Wars.
Lucullus, Hardback (August 1992)» View all books by Arthur Keaveney
The first English biography on one of Rome's greatest soldiers, traditionally considered a degenerate. It offers a thoroughly revisionist account of Lucullus as a soldier, politician and aesthete, dispelling many wild fictions about him.
