Julius Caesar and the Transformation of the Roman Republic provides an accessible introduction to Caesar’s life and public career. It outlines the main phases of his career with reference to prominent social and political concepts of the time. This approach helps to explain his aims, ideals, and motives as rooted in tradition, and demonstrates that Caesar’s rise to power owed much to broad historical processes of the late Republican period, a view that contrasts with the long-held idea that he sought to become Rome’s king from an early age. This is an essential undergraduate introduction to this fascinating figure, and to his role in the transformation of Rome from republic to empire.

Am Tag, an dem Augustus bestattet wurde, kamen alle öffentlichen und privaten Geschäfte zum Stillstand. Ganz Rom und Hunderttausende von Menschen aus ganz Italien beteiligten sich an den Trauerfeierlichkeiten. Die Leiche wurde auf einem Prunkbett auf den Scheiterhaufen gesetzt. Darüber ruhte, für alle sichtbar, ein aus Wachs gefertigtes Abbild des Toten. Als das Feuer aufloderte, stieg ein Adler in den Himmel – ein Zeichen dafür, daß der Verstorbene zu den Göttern erhoben worden war. Ein Senator bestätigte später unter Eid, er habe die Seele des Verstorbenen zu den Göttern auffahren sehen. Livia, Augustus’ Witwe, belohnte den Zeugen mit einer Million Sesterzen. Wer war dieser Mensch, der damals unter die Götter aufgenommen worden sein soll? Ein Willkürherrscher? Ein Friedensfürst? Ein Neugestalter von Staat, Heer, Gesellschaft und Kultus, kurzum – der Neugestalter der römischen Welt? Werner Eck bietet in seiner fesselnden Biographie Antworten auf diese und viele weitere Fragen zur Machtpolitik des Augustus.
