Cicero : the life and times of Rome's greatest politician by Anthony Everitt( Book )

24 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 2,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this biography Anthony Everitt brings to life the world of ancient Rome in its glorious heyday. Cicero squared off against Caesar and was friends with young Brutus. He advised Pompey on his botched transition from military hero to politician. He lambasted Mark Antony and was the master of the smear campaign, as feared for his wit as he was for exposing his opponents' sexual peccadilloes. Brilliant, voluble, cranky, a terrible gossip, and a genius of political manipulation, Cicero was Rome's most revered politician, one of the greatest statesmen of all time. Accessible to us through unguarded letters written to his best friend, Atticus, Cicero emerges as a witty and resourceful political manipulator, the most eloquent witness to the last days of Republican Rome
Augustus : the life of Rome's first emperor by Anthony Everitt( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He found Rome made of clay and left it made of marble. As Rome's first emperor, Augustus transformed the unruly Republic into the greatest empire the world had ever seen. His consolidation and expansion of Roman power two thousand years ago laid the foundations for all of Western history to follow. Yet despite Augustus's accomplishments, very few biographers have concentrated on the man himself, instead choosing to chronicle the age in which he lived. In this study of power and political genius, biographer Everitt gives an intimate account of his illustrious subject. He takes some of the household names of history--Caesar, Brutus, Cassius, Antony, Cleopatra--and turns them into flesh and blood. At a time when many consider America an empire, this portrait of the greatest emperor who ever lived makes for enlightening reading.--From publisher description
The rise of Rome : the making of the world's greatest empire by Anthony Everitt( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rome's decline and fall have long fascinated historians, but the story of how the empire was won is every bit as compelling. Emerging as a market town from a cluster of hill villages in the eighth and seventh centuries B.C.E., Rome grew to become the ancient world's preeminent power. Historian Anthony Everitt fashions the story of Rome's rise to glory into an erudite page-turner filled with lessons for our time. He paints indelible portraits of the great Romans--and non-Romans--who left their mark on the Roman world. He chronicles the clash between patricians and plebeians that defined the politics of the Republic. He shows how Rome's shrewd strategy of offering citizenship to her defeated subjects was instrumental in expanding the reach of her burgeoning empire. And he outlines the corrosion of constitutional norms that accompanied Rome's imperial expansion, as old habits of political compromise gave way, leading to violence and civil war. In the end, unimaginable wealth and power corrupted the traditional virtues of the Republic, and Rome was left triumphant everywhere except within its own borders.--From publisher description
Hadrian and the triumph of Rome by Anthony Everitt( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 1,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed author Anthony Everitt, whose Augustus was praised by the Philadelphia Inquirer as a narrative of sustained drama and skillful analysis, is the rare writer whose work both informs and enthralls. In Hadrian and the Triumph of Rome-the first major account of the emperor in nearly a century-Everitt presents a compelling, richly researched biography of the man whom he calls arguably the most successful of Rome's rulers. Born in A.D. 76, Hadrian lived through and ruled during a tempestuous era, a time when the Colosseum was opened to the public and Pompeii was buried under a mountain of lava and ash. Everitt vividly recounts Hadrian's thrilling life, in which the emperor brings a century of disorder and costly warfare to a peaceful conclusion while demonstrating how a monarchy can be compatible with good governance. Hadrian was brave and astute-despite his sometimes prickly demeanor-as well as an accomplished huntsman, poet, and student of philosophy. What distinguished Hadrian's rule, according to Everitt, were two insights that inevitably ensured the empire's long and prosperous future: He ended Rome's territorial expansion, which had become strategically and economically untenable, by fortifying her boundaries (the many famed Walls of Hadrian), and he effectively Hellenized Rome by anointing Athens the empire's cultural center, thereby making Greek learning and art vastly more prominent in Roman life. With unprecedented detail, Everitt illuminates Hadrian's private life, including his marriage to Sabina-a loveless, frequently unhappy bond that bore no heirs-and his enduring yet doomed relationship with the true love of his life, Antinous, a beautiful young Bithynian man. Everitt also covers Hadrian's war against the Jews, which planted the seeds of present-day discord in the Middle East. Despite his tremendous legacy-including a virtual marble biography of still-standing structures-Hadrian is considered one of Rome's more enigmatic emperors. But making splendid use of recently discovered archaeological materials and his own exhaustive research, Everitt sheds new light on one of the most important figures of the ancient world

Augustus the life of Rome's first emperor by Anthony Everitt( Recording )

Imperator Caesar Augustus was one of the greatest figures of one of mankind's greatest ages. As Rome's first emperor, he transformed the unruly Roman Republic into the greatest empire the world had ever seen. His consolidation and expansion of the Roman power two thousand years ago laid the foundations, literally, for all of Western history to come. Yet Augustus himself remains a shadowy figure. Much has been written about his achievements, but his inner world has remained remarkably obsure. Now at least we have a book that brings this momentous figure to life
