a very reader accessible biography of Augustus Rome s first Emperor The books a chronicle of the entire life of Augustus and his parents from birth to death 70 BCE 14 CE His family was a famous one well known to those of us familiar with Shakespeare s political stage plays and several PBSMasterpiece series However as much as the political and family strife of ancient Rome now entertains us Hot Under the Collar its the military campaigns and the brilliant commanders which made Rome a civilization which lasted almost 500 years as a world power The book too briefly outlines some of the customs and laws the ancient Romans had and how some of them changed or were given attention after Augustus established himself as emperor A literate society like the Romans possessed especially since Augustus apparently believed Horses in free speech means a gold mine of documentation about them Its a shame so much of Goblin King it has been lost through the succeeding centuries We know literature

He was not always the winner of these battles Indeed he made some serious mistakes which cost many lives n his legions and serious loss of of face But when he realized his limitations as a military mind he employed able friends and others he knew to be better commanders than himself Augustus was a calm personality generally not given to excess of emotions or habits It made him a good ruler f not

Voices: Plays Produced by the Jewish Repertory Theatre into the greatest empire the world had ever seen His consolidation and expansion of Roman power two thousand years ago laid the foundations for
