The histories by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

Tacitus' 'Annals' recounts the major historical events from the years shortly before the death of Augustus to the death of Nero in AD 68. Despite his claim that the 'Annals' were written objectively, Tacitus' account is sharply critical of the emperors' excesses and fearful for the future of imperial Rome
De vita Agricolae by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

399 editions published between 1574 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first work of any great historian has always commanded attention, and Tacitus was ancient Rome's very greatest historian. His biography of his father-in-law, governor of Britain in the years AD 77-84, is a literary masterpiece: it combines penetrating political history with gripping military narrative and throughout poses the question (still very much alive today) of how one should live one's life under a tyranny. This is the first commentary in English on the Agricola for almost half a century: in keeping with the aims of the series, particular attention is paid to the understanding of Tacitus' Latin, but a whole range of generic, historical, textual and narrative topics is covered, and it will be suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as scholars. Tacitus' Agricola remains a key text for anyone with an interest in Roman Britain as well as ancient biography
The annals of imperial Rome by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

203 editions published between 1692 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 2,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The annals : the reigns of Tiberius, Claudius, and Nero by Cornelius Tacitus( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 1,523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a lively new translation of Cornelius Tacitus' timeless history of three of Rome's most memorable emperors. Tacitus, who condemns the depravity of these rulers, which he saw as proof of the corrupting force of absolute power, writes caustically of the brutal and lecherous Tiberius, the weak and cuckolded Claudius, and "the artist" Nero. In particular, his gripping account of the bloody reigns of Tiberius and Nero brims with plots, murder, poisoning, suicide, uprisings, death, and destruction. The Annals also provides a vivid account of the violent suppression of the revolt led by Boudicca in Britain, the great fire of Rome under Nero, and the subsequent bloody persecution of the Christians. J.C. Yardley's translation is vivid without sacrificing accuracy, and is based on the recent Latin Heubner text, with variations noted in an appendix. Anthony A. Barrett's introduction and notes provide invaluable historical and cultural context. This superb edition also includes maps, a glossary of Roman terms and place names, and a full index of names and places. - Publisher

Agricola ; and Germany by Cornelius Tacitus( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 1,303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cornelius Tacitus, Rome's greatest historian and the last major writer of classical Latin prose, produced his first two books in AD 98. He was inspired to take up his pen when the assassination of Domitian ended 'fifteen years of enforced silence'. These first products were brief: the biography of his late father-in-law Julius Agricola and an account of Rome's most dangerous enemies, the Germans. As governor for seven years, Agricola had completed the conquest of Britain and much of Tacitus' biography is devoted to the country and its people. Germany is the only surviving specimen from the ancient world of an ethnographic study. Each of these early works has had immense influence on our perception of Rome and the northern 'barbarians'." "This newly translated edition reflects recent research in Roman-British and Roman-German history, including recently discovered evidence on Tacitus' early career."--Jacket

The annals ; and the histories by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

11 editions published between 1952 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Annals was Tacitus' final work and provides a key source for modern understanding of the history of the Roman Empire from the beginning of the reign of Tiberius in AD 14 to the end of the reign of Nero, in AD 68. Tacitus wrote the Annals in at least 16 books, but books 7–10 and parts of books 5, 6, 11 and 16 are missing. The period covered by the Histories (written before the Annals) starts at the beginning of the year AD 69, i.e. six months after the death of Nero and continues to the death of Domitian in 96. It is not known when Tacitus began writing the Annals, but he was well into writing it by AD 116. Modern scholars believe that as a senator, Tacitus had access to Acta Senatus, the Roman senate's records, thus providing a solid basis for his work

The life and deeds of Gnaeus Iulius Agricola ? governor of the Roman province of Britannia under the Flavian emperors ? are best retold by his son-in-law, Tacitus. Tacitus describes not only the successful Romancampaigns in Britannia, but also the characteristics of the country. Thus, his Agricola is one of most elemental sources for the study of the history andinner structure of this northernmost Roman province
Germania. : Agricola. Dialogus de oratoribus by Cornelius Tacitus( )

Cornelius Tacitus, Rome's greatest historian and the last great writer of classical Latin prose, produced his first two books in AD 98, after the assination of the Emperor Domitian ended fifteen years of enforced silence. Much of Agricola, which is the biography of Tacitus' late father-in-law Julius Agricola, is devoted to Britain and its people, since Agricola's claim to fame was that as governor for seven years he had completed the conquest of Britain, begun four decades earlier. Germany provides an account of Rome's most dangerous enemies, the Germans, and is the only surviving example of a
