    a| Annotation b| <p>Revised throughout, the second edition of this successful book takes the most recent research in the field into account and reviews the evidence in order to place Augustus firmly in the context of his own times.</p><p>History sees Augustus Caesar as the first emperor of Rome, whose system of ordered government provided a firm and stable basis for the expansion and prosperity of the Roman Empire. Hailed as 'restorer of the Republic' and regarded by some as a deity in his own lifetime, Augustus was emulated by many of his successors.</p><p>&nbsp;Key topics discussed include:</p><ul><li>&nbsp;the background to Augustus Caesar's spectacular rise to power&nbsp;</li><li>his political and imperial reforms</li><li>the creation of the <em>Republica </em>of Augustus</li><li>the legacy Augustus Caesar left to his successors.&nbsp;</li></ul><p>Including more coverage of the social and cultural aspects of this complex character's reign, together with an expanded guide to further reading, students will not miss a beat if this book is included on their course reading lists.</p>
