Rubicon

The Triumph and Tragedy of the Roman Republic
Tom Holland
Introduced by the author

A gripping account of the twilight of the Roman Republic and its bloody transformation into empire; the story of Caesar's generation, thrillingly told.

‘The blood-stained drama of the last decades of the Roman Republic… is told afresh with tremendous wit, narrative verve and insight… What characters there were in this drama!’

  1. Christopher Hart, Independent on Sunday

Described by renowned author Ian McEwan as ’narrative history at its best’, Rubicon brings to life the last century of the Roman Republic, when Rome was transformed from a democratically run empire into one ruled by an emperor. With his extensive research and authoritative prose, Tom Holland has brought a fresh perspective to this dramatic era.
