Caligula : a biography by Aloys Winterling( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography tells a different story of the well-known emperor. In a deft account written for a general audience, Aloys Winterling opens a new perspective on the man and his times. Basing Caligula on a thoroughly new assessment of the ancient sources, he sets the emperor's story into the context of the political system and the changing relations between the Senate and the emperor during Caligula's time and finds a new rationality explaining his notorious brutality. --Book Jacket
The age of Augustus by Werner Eck( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this biography, Werner Eck, one of the world's foremost experts on the Roman empire, tells the story of Augustus, Rome's first emperor." "Using literary, archaeological, and legal sources, The Age of Augustus traces the history of the "Roman revolution" in which Rome was transformed from republic to monarchy. The book provides a vivid narrative of Augustus' brutal rise to power, from the war against the assassins of Julius Caesar to his struggle against Antony and Cleopatra. It describes the key aspects of his reign, including the expansion of the empire, his relationship with the army and people, and his vast building projects in the city of Rome." "In this English language edition, a new translation of Augustus' Res Gestae (with a short introduction) and a substantial bibliography have been added. This straightforward book is organized chronologically around Augustus' own account of his life, making it perfect for anyone approaching the subject for the first time."--Jacket

The Eulenburg Affair : a cultural history of politics in the German empire by Norman Domeier( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it broke out in 1906, the scandal surrounding Prince Philipp Eulenburg, closest confidant of Emperor Wilhelm II, shook the Hohenzollern monarchy and all of Europe to the core. Sparked by accusations by the journalist and publicist Maximilian Harden, the scandal dominated European headlines until 1909; it was the first modern scandal in which homosexuality was openly discussed. Particularly shocking was Harden's claim that Wilhelm had long been under the influence of a homosexual camarilla led by Eulenburg. Allegedly, this clique had brought about Bismarck's dismissal, cut off the emperor from his people, and, with its undue pacifism, maneuvered Germany not only into isolation, but to the brink of war during the Morocco Crisis of 1905-6. The scandal came to be a forum for the German public to debate diverse political, social, and cultural issues: honor, friendship, marriage, privacy, sexual mores, anti-Semitism, spiritualism, class struggle, submission to authority, and enthusiasm for the military. Norman Domeier's book, now in English translation, is the first scholarly monograph on the scandal. It draws on a wealth of primary material, including ca. 5,000 newspaper articles as well as minutes of court trials, private correspondence, government files, pamphlets, diaries, memoirs, and images. Domeier's historical analysis offers fascinating insights into the cultural history of German politics in the fateful years of transition from the Belle Époque to the "Iron Age" of the world wars. Norman Domeier is Assistant Professor at the University of Stuttgart's Historical Institute.--

Athens from Alexander to Antony by Christian Habicht( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian Habicht narrates the history of Athens from its subjugation by the Macedonians in 338 to the battle of Actium in 31 B.C., when Octavian's defeat of Mark Anatomy paved the way for Roman dominion over the Hellenistic world. Habicht lucidly chronicles the democracy's setbacks and recoveries over these years as it formed and suffered the consequences of various alliances. He sketches its continuing leading role in intellectual life and the arts, as Menander and other Athenian playwrights saw their work produced throughout the Greek world, and the city's famous schools of philosophy, now including those of Zeno and Epicurus, remained a stellar attraction for students from around the Mediterranean
The Wehrmacht : history, myth, reality by Wolfram Wette( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Verhandeling over het Duitse leger tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog: de Wehrmacht. Tal van mythes worden ontkracht, met name de veronderstelling dat alleen de SS, en niet de Wehrmacht, zich schuldig maakte aan misdaden tegen de menselijkheid
The panorama : history of a mass medium by Stephan Oettermann( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The significance of panorama painting in the nineteenth century is frequently cited in contemporary debates about visuality and the emergence of the modern spectator. Stephan Oettermann's The Panorama is the first major historical study to appear in English of the rich phenomenon of the panorama, one of the most influential forms of visual entertainment in the nineteenth century. In this richly illustrated book Oettermann gives readers a concrete sense of the structural and experiential reality of the panorama, and the many forms it took throughout Europe and North America--a crucial task given that very few of the original nineteenth-century panoramas survive. At the same time, he outlines the many ways in which these remarkable and often immense 360-degree images were part of a larger transformation of the status of the observer and of popular culture. Thus, the panorama is treated not only as a new kind of image but also as an architectural and informational component of the new urban spaces and media networks

Florence and Baghdad : Renaissance art and Arab science by Hans Belting( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this lavishly illustrated study, Belting deals with the double history of perspective, as a visual theory based on geometrical abstraction (in the Middle East) and as pictorial theory (in Europe). Florence and Baghdad addresses a provocative question that reaches beyond the realm of aesthetics and mathematics: What happens when Muslims and Christians look upon each other and find their way of viewing the world transformed as a result?
