This will be the first in a series on the Roman Caesars, which will include titles on Augustus, Claudius and Constantine. They will be written in the typical Life & Times style: accessible, affordable, beautifully produced and illustrated and above all: entertaining to read for a new generation of readers, who have become interested in the Roman era through movies such as Gladiators.
