Description

Taking into account the latest research on the subject, David Shotter has updated this second edition of Tiberius Caesar throughout and provides a concise and accessible survey of the character and life of Tiberius Caesar, heir of Augustus Caesar and emperor of Rome from AD 14 to AD 37.

Tiberius Caesar sheds light on many aspects of the reign of this enigmatic emperor, including the influential and often problematic relationships Tiberius maintained with the senate, his heir Germanicus and Sejanus.

Other key topics discussed include:

* Tiberius's rise to power

* Tiberius's struggle to meet the demands of his role

* how far Tiberius's policies differed from those of Augustus

* why Tiberius retired from official duties in AD 26.

Also included is a revised and expanded bibliography and a new index, all of which, added together, makes for an invaluable book in the study of Roman history.

About the Author

David Shotter recently retired as Senior Lecturer in Roman History at the University of Lancaster. His many books include Augustus Caesar, The Fall of the Roman Republic and Roman Britain.

About the Series

Lancaster Pamphlets in Ancient History

Lancaster Pamphlets offer concise and up-to-date accounts of major historical topics, primarily for the help of students preparing for Advanced Level examinations, though they should also be of value to those pursuing introductory courses in universities and other institutions of higher education. Without being all-embracing, their aims are to bring some of the central themes or problems confronting students and teachers into sharper focus than the textbook writer can hope to do; to provide the reader with some of the results of recent research which the textbook may not embody; and to stimulate thought about the whole interpretation of the topic under discussion.
