Jon Lendon offers a bold new analysis of how Roman government worked in the first four centuries AD. He contends that a despotism rooted in force and fear enjoyed widespread support among the ruling classes of the provinces on the basis of an aristocratic culture of honor shared by rulers and ruled.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fabulous coruscating prose; fascinating premise  Jun 19, 2002
In the 21st century, the culture of the aristocrat is largely a faded memory, and noble values--such as "honor" are largely viewed with suspicion as having fallen into disregard. This book is a serious attempt to reimagine Rome's alien culture, and to refine and revive conceptions of honor as people now dead 2000 years regarded it.

Unrepentantly a book for experts, yet written with a verve and sheer joy in language that makes it accessible to the more casual reader. As Lendon begins: "On what was to be the last day of his life, the Emperor Nero awoke to find that the palace sentries had abandoned their posts." The reader is--on some level at least --in for a wild and glorious ride from that point forward!

Whether the author himself would appreciate this or not, this book would do well in the library of the fantasy role-playing expert, looking to build a convincing scenario around a "Gladiator" style setting!
