Tiberius Caesar by David Shotter
Book DescriptionTaking into account the latest research on the subject, David Shotter has updated this second edition of Tiberius Caesar throughout and provides a concise and accessible survey of the character and life of Tiberius Caesar, heir of Augustus Caesar and emperor of Rome from AD 14 to AD 37. Tiberius Caesar sheds light on many aspects of the reign of this enigmatic emperor, including the influential and often problematic relationships Tiberius maintained with the senate, his heir Germanicus and Sejanus. Other key topics discussed include: * Tiberius's rise to power * Tiberius's struggle to meet the demands of his role * how far Tiberius's policies differed from those of Augustus * why Tiberius retired from official duties in AD 26. Also included is a revised and expanded bibliography and a new index, all of which, added together, makes for an invaluable book in the study of Roman history.
