Críticas:

'By close and intelligent readings of very different types of contemporary evidence, Osgood makes the reader understand the horror of those years in the lives of ordinary Romans. His mastery of a very wide range of modern scholarship is matched by an admirably direct and accessible style. Caesar's Legacy is a historical work of real distinction.' The Times Literary Supplement

'… a fine achievement … A vision of the triumviral period now exists where none existed before. In his first book, Mr Osgood provides an admirable demonstration of original scholarship, and he is to be warmly congratulated.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review

'… an important book …' Journal of Classics Teaching

'… an important contribution to late-republican scholarship, and a captivating read for any Roman historian.' L'Antiquité Classique

Descripción CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 223 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In April 44 BC the eighteen-year-old Gaius Octavius landed in Italy and launched his take-over of the Roman world. Defeating first Caesar s assassins, then the son of Pompey the Great, and finally Antony and the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, he dismantled the old Republic, took on the new name Augustus , and ruled forty years more with his equally remarkable wife Livia. Caesar s Legacy grippingly retells the story of Augustus rise to power by focusing on how the bloody civil wars which he and his soldiers fought transformed the lives of men and women throughout the Mediterranean world and beyond. During this violent period citizens of Rome and provincials came to accept a new form of government and found ways to celebrate it. Yet they also mourned, in literary masterpieces and stories passed on to their children, the terrible losses they endured throughout the long years of fighting.

Descripción Estado de conservación: New. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge (.), 2008. 4th corr.ed. XII,440p. Paperback. 'Josiah Osgood (hence O.) offers us the first real attempt to provide a comprehensive picture of the triumviral period, to hear the forgotten voices of those who experienced that apocalyptic pandemonium and felt the final relief of the principate. As he shows from the outset, providing a narrative of the time was problematic even in antiquity (the emperor Claudius was discouraged from writing about it, and there are famous silences in the Res Gestae). From the start it must be stated that I feel that O. has succeeded in creating something useful, original and noteworthy. (.) O. has, in general, written a very good book. He manifests a remarkable enthusiasm to embrace as many types of sources and perspectives as possible, and does so gracefully. At times, he uses comparative evidence to round out the picture, such as when he draws from the denunciation files from Nazi Germany to illuminate the proscriptions, and later compares Octavian's propaganda campaign before Actium to the American dehumanization of their Japanese enemies in WWII. His book represents the type of scholarship one would like to see more of. (.) In his first book, Mr. Osgood provides an admirable demonstration of original scholarship, and he is to be warmly congratulated.' (J.A. LOBUR in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2006.10.30).
