Caligula: The Corruption of Power

By: Barrett, Anthony A.

Price: $5.00

Publisher: New Haven, Yale University Press: 1990

Edition: BCE

Seller ID: 01081038

ISBN: 0300046537

Condition: Near Fine


Making judicious use of the often incomplete and inconsistent sources from the life and rule of Caligula, Roman emperor A.D. 37-41, Barrett has succeeded in writing a detailed and full study intended to appeal to informed readers and students of Roman history. The historical significance of Caligula's reign is also examined, e.g., his treatment of Jews and plans to conquer Britain. In sum, Barrett's book offers new insights into a figure often avoided by academic biographers. - Jackson P. Hershbell, Univ. of Minnesota, Minneapolis. 368pp. View more info

Hitler admired her for her "cosmopolitan sophistication," but Olga Chekhova, niece of Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, was far too pragmatic to lose herself to the charms of a powerful man.
