Caesar and Roman politics 60-50 B.C.: source material in translation
Roman political history of the first century BC offers an almost embarrassing wealth of source material -- the contemporary testimony of Caesar and Cicero, the full derivative accounts of Appian and Dio, the biographies of Suetonius and Plutarch, to name but a few. This selection, of some 400 extracts from over twenty authors, presents in English translation a fair selection of those sources concentrating on Caesar around the mid-century. The passages are arranged thematically rather than chronologically, and introductions and interpolation guide the student through the material. This is an ideal book to encourage a student to form opinions -- and criticise those of others -- about the achievements of Julius Caesar in the dying Republic's crucial years, 60-50 BC.
