Vasily Rudich examines dissidence under Nero from both historical and psychological perspectives and inquires into the balance of the universal and historically conditioned components of political behaviour. The careers of numerous dissident individuals and their attempts at accomodation to a hostile reality are discussed.


`… the core of Rudich's book consists of six thickly detailed chapters which cover the varied careers, experiences and fates of those who dissented under Nero. Many of these mini-biographies are finely drawn. Their strenght lies in a recognition of their subjects' humanity.' - Times Literary Supplement
