Review
“Tatum gives his readers a sense of the distinctive features of Roman society … and of Caesar as a great figure within its peculiar nexus of familial, political, economic, military and religious forces.” Times Higher Education Supplement<!–end–>

“Something … for everyone … .The prose flows like that of an engaging professor or storyteller. More than a biography … .Tatum writes with flair.” About.com

“A tour-de-force befitting the man who conquered Gaul and Rome. Tatum writes with his customary verve, lucid exposition, and trenchant observations. The book retains the full flavor of a live, and lively, lecture to a general audience, with ample material for the scholarly reader to ponder.”
Christoph Konrad, Texas A&M University

“Tatum has produced a highly enjoyable account of Caesar and his world. These twin foci between them generate a considerable energy, which illuminates many areas of Roman life, politics and culture, as well as the multifaceted personality of Caesar himself. It is a welcome contribution to one of the most well-tilled corners of Roman history and will hopefully provoke many minds into considering old questions in new ways.” (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, March 2009)
