"Roman Britain existed for 400 years from around AD 40, and is still the subject of much interest and continually emerging material. Roman Britain by David Shotter offers an introduction to this period and an analysis of the current research, drawing on the wealth of recent scholarship to explain the progress of the Romans and their objectives in conquering Britain. Concentrating on the changes experienced by the British as part of the Roman empire, it surveys the diversity of people, activities and aspirations that became a thriving Romano-British economy and society."--Jacket

Tiberius Caesar sheds light on many aspects of the reign of this enigmatic emperor, including the influential and often problematic relationships Tiberius maintained with the senate, his heir Germanicus and Sejanus."

Augustus Caesar by D. C. A Shotter( )

46 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 1,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"History sees Augustus Caesar as the first emperor of Rome, whose system of ordered government provided a firm and stable basis for the expansion and prosperity of the Roman Empire. Hailed as 'restorer of the Republic' and regarded by some as a deity in his own lifetime, Augustus was emulated by many of his successors. David Shotter reviews the evidence in order to place Augustus firmly in the context of his own times." "Revised throughout, the second edition of this successful book takes the most recent research in the field into account. David Shotter also includes more coverage of the social and cultural aspects of this complex character's reign, together with an expanded guide to further reading."--Jacket
Rome and her Empire by D. C. A Shotter( )

13 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and held by 1,334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The name of Rome excites a picture of power and organisation, as do the widely-spread ruins that Roman civilization left behind. Yet Rome grew out of a collection of small villages and major developments such as the growth of Empire were unplanned and completely unprepared for. Influenced by a small number of self-interested aristocrats who lacked a broader vision, Rome was often threatened by their intrigues. Brought to the ground on a number of occasions, its leaders were able to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. How did Rome survive for nearly 1000 years, ruling over millions of people
Nero Caesar Augustus : emperor of Rome by D. C. A Shotter( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Shotter looks at the source material - literary, historical and material - on which our judgements of Nero have been based and discusses the reliability of the ancient accounts of his reign in the light of their authors' own priorities. Rather than presenting Nero as a timeless monster he shows him in the context of first-century Rome - as a player in the development of the Imperial system of government and as a product of the often treacherous and bloody history of the Julian and Claudian families. Nero, he argues was not the madman of popular myth, nor is there any real evidence that he thought of himself as a god."--Jacket
I, Caesar : the rise and fall of the Roman Empire( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The public and private lives of six key men who ruled the Roman Empire: Julius Caesar; Augustus; Nero; Hadrian; Constantine; and Justinian. Includes unequaled location footage; unseen images; and careful re-enactments bringing the series to life
Annals IV by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1999 in English and Latin and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Suetonius, Lives of Galba, Otho & Vitellius by Suetonius( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of this study lies in the fact that it applies fresh understanding of these events to Suetonius' accounts, comparing them to the chief 'alternative' to be found in the works of Tacitus, Plutarch and Dio Cassius. The careers and reigns of the three emperors are discussed in the introduction, whilst the 'minor characters' involved in the events are treated, as relevant, in the commentary; this is constructed with the non-Latinist in mind, and the notes are appended to the translation rather than to the Latin text
