Críticas:

"Adrian Goldsworthy is one of our most promising young military historians today."-Sir John Keegan, author of "The Iraq War"

""Caesar" is an accessible, balanced, and highly readable contribution to our understanding of one of Rome's most complex characters. No one writing in English today knows more about Roman military history than Adrian Goldsworthy."-Guy Rogers, Wellesley College

"Goldsworthy's book will remain the definitive biography of Caesar for years to come."-Philip Matyszak, author of "The Sons of Caesar: Imperial Rome's First Dynasty"

"Adrian Goldsworthy is one of the new generation of young classicists who combine scholarship with storytelling to bring the ancient world to life.  In his masterly new "Caesar," he shows us the greatest Roman as man, statesman, soldier, and lover."-Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of "Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar"

"It gives me great pleasure to give "Caesar" the strongest possible recommendation.  Caesar was a complex character living in confusing times, but Adrian Goldsworthy tackles the subject with a vigor, thoroughness and clarity of purpose that the great man  himself would have approved of."-Philip Sidnell, Editor, Ancient and Medieval History Book Club (London)

Reseña del editor:

Tracing the extraordinary trajectory of the great Roman emperor s life, Goldsworthy covers not only the great Roman emperor s accomplishments as charismatic orator, conquering general, and powerful dictator but also lesser-known chapters during which he was high priest of an exotic cult, captive of pirates, seducer not only of Cleopatra but also of the wives of his two main political rivals, and rebel condemned by his own country. Ultimately, Goldsworthy realizes the full complexity of Caesar s character and shows why his political and military leadership continues to resonate some two thousand years later.
In the introduction to his biography of the great Roman emperor, Adrian Goldsworthy writes, Caesar was at times many things, including a fugitive, prisoner, rising politician, army leader, legal advocate, rebel, dictator . . . as well as husband, father, lover and adulterer. In this landmark biography, Goldsworthy examines Caesar as military leader, all of these roles and places his subject firmly within the context of Roman society in the first century B.C.
