Online Read → By Tom Holland ❥ After a palace coup demolished the reign of King Tarquin of Rome in 509 B.C., a republican government flourished, providing every person an opportunity to participate in political life in the name of liberty As Holland, a novelist and adapter of Herodotus Histories for British radio, points out in this lively re creation of the republic s rise and fall, the seeds of destruction were planted in the very soil in which the early republic flourished It was often members of the patrician classes who had the resources to achieve political success Such implicit class distinctions in an ostensibly classless society also gave rise to a new group of rulers who acted like monarchs Holland chronicles the rise to power of such leaders as Sulla Felix, Pompey, Cicero and Julius Caesar Some of these leaders, such as Pompey, appealed to the masses by expanding the republic through military conquest others, like Cicero, worked to reinforce class distinctions Holland points to the suppression of the Gracchian revolution a series of reforms in favor of the poor pushed by the Gracchus brothers in the second century B.C as the beginning of the end of the republic, providing the context into which Julius Caesar would step with his own attempts to save the republic As Holland points out, Caesar actually precipitated civil wars and helped to reestablish an imperial form of government in Rome With the skill of a good novelist, Holland weaves a rip roaring tale of political and historical intrigue as he chronicles the lively personalities and problems that led to the end of the Roman republic Maps.Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Starred Review Ancient history lives in this vivid chronicle of the tumultuous events that impelled Julius Caesar across the one small river that separated the Roman Republic from cataclysmic civil war With the narrative talents that have established him as a prominent radio personality and novelist, Holland pulls readers deep into the treacherous riptide of Roman politics To show how Caesar eventually masters that tide if only temporarily Holland first traces the bloody career of the ruthless dictator Sulla, who rescues an imperiled Republic even as he breaches its founding traditions Those breaches deeply disturb the moralist Cato, but the indulgent luxury of a post Sullan world suits Caesar well enough a popular favorite, he sets the fashion in loose fitting togas and waits for his fated opening Recounting Caesar s eventual seizure of power in pages as irresistibly cadenced as the legionnaires march, Holland probes the tragic ironies that quickly expose the bold conqueror to idealistic assassins, who themselves soon perish in the rise of the Augustan Empire Not a work for scrupulous scholars, but a richly resonant history for the general reader Bryce Christensen Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved
