really liked it
Read in December, 2007

Pretty good. Its a new take on the roman empire, in that caesar was actually a good guy and that left-wing leaders kept getting wacked in ancient rome. Also, I don't know if I totally agree with his conclusions about how the Roman Emperors kept power. I think they were able to keep it by appeasing their veterans and workers as much as appeasing the aristocrats (who had largely been decimated in the purges of Augustus)
