"In AD 68 Nero's suicide marked the end of the first dynasty of imperial Rome. The following year was one of drama and danger. In the surviving books of his Histories the barrister-historian Tacitus, writing some thirty years after the events he describes, gives a detailed account of the 'long but single year' when four emperors emerged in succession: Galba, the martinet; Otho, conspirator and dandy; Vitellius, the unambitious hedonist; and the ultimate victor, Vespasian, who established the Flavian dynasty. With great vividness and emotional power, Tacitus' gripping narrative lays bare corruption, injustice and folly, and sheds lasting light on the nature of power. This revised version of Kenneth Wellesley's translation has sensitively updated it to render it more accessible to the modern reader. This edition contains a new introduction by Rhiannon Ash discussing Tacitus' life and his contemporary audience, a note on the text, further reading, a glossary of place and peoples, expanded notes and a chronology"--Page 4 of cover

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
Annals, Histories, Agricola, Germania by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complete historical works of the greatest chronicler of the Roman Empire in a wholly revised and updated translation. A brilliant narrator and a master stylist, Tacitus served as administrator and senator, a career that gave him an intimate view of the empire at its highest levels, and of the dramatic, violent, and often bloody events of the first century. In the Annals, he writes about Augustus Caesar's death and observes the inner workings of the courts of the emperors Tiberius and Nero. In the Histories, he describes an empire in tumult, four emperors reigning in one year, each overthrown by the next. The Agricola, a biography of Tacitus's father-in-law, Julius Agricola, the most celebrated governor of Roman Britain is the first detailed account of the island that would eventually rule over a quarter of the earth. And in the Germania, the famed warrior-barbarians of ancient Germany come richly to life
