"A clear and lively narrative. Chrissanthos equips nonexpert readers with all of the necessary context to explore the violent events of Caesar's first consulship in depth. This is a good introduction to the politics of the Roman Republic and its ultimate fate."

"The 'Year of Julius and Caesar' may not have been the end of the Roman Republic, but the bitter struggles of this year were surely the beginning of the end. In this widely accessible account, Stefan Chrissanthos reveals the dangers of a polarized political climate, at once a story of how a new imperial age came to be, and a cautionary tale for any society."
