Nero's personality and crimes have always intrigued historians and writers of fiction. However, his reign also illuminates the nature of the Julio-Claudian Principate. Nero's suicide brought to an end the dynasty Augustus had founded, and placed in jeopardy the political system he had devised.
Miriam T. Griffin's authoratitive survey of Nero's reign incorporates both a chronological account, as well as an analysis of the reasons for Nero's collapse under the pressure of his role as emperor.

About the Author:

Educated at Columbia, Harvard University and St Anne's College, Oxford, Miriam Griffin is Tutor in Ancient History and Fellow of Somerville College, Oxford.

From Publishers Weekly:

A vain, suspicious, vindictive man, the Roman Emperor Nero admitted by the end of his reign that he had failed completely. PW concluded: "Griffin's excellent biographical history is both perceptive and evenhanded."
