Description - Vespasian by Barbara Levick

In AD 69-70 the Roman Empire seemed to be endangered by civil war and rebellion. The plebeian and uncharismatic Emperor Vespasian restored peace and confidence and ensured a smooth succession. Barbara Levick outlines how this able individual gained the necessary military experience and political skills that enabled him to stage his successful bid for empire in AD 69 and go on to consolidate his supremacy and that of his dynasty in the decade that followed. She explores how Vespasian managed to cope with the military, political and economic problems of his reign as well as the solutions to those problems. Finally she examines Emperor Vespasians posthumous reputation. In this comprehensive and engaging biography Barbara Levick examines the life and times of the emperor Vespasian and challenges the validity of his perennial good reputation and universally acknowledged achievements.
