From the Back Cover: In this concise biography, Werner Eck, one of the world’s foremost experts on the Roman empire, tells the extraordinary story of Augustus, Rome’s first emperor.


Using literary, archaeological, and legal sources, The Age of Augustus traces the history of the 'Roman revolution' in which Rome was transformed from republic to monarchy. The book provides a vivid narrative of Augustus’ brutal rise to power, from the war against the assassins of Julius Caesar to his struggle against Antony and Cleopatra. It describes the key aspects of his reign, including the expansion of the empire, his relationship with the army and people, and his vast building projects in the city of Rome.

In this English language edition, a new translation of Augustus’ Res Gestae (with a short introduction) and a substantial bibliography have been added. This straightforward book is organized chronologically around Augustus’ own account of his life, making it perfect for anyone approaching the subject for the first time.
