David Shotter, "Tiberius Caesar"
Routledge | 1992 | ISBN: 0415076544 | 112 pages | PDF | 1,1 MB
David Shotter presents an up-to-date study of the character and life of Tiberius Caesar, heir of Augustus and Emperor of Rome from AD 14 to 37. Contemporary and near-contemporary accounts of his life provide new perspectives on the major issues of Tiberius' reign: his relations with the senate, with Germanicus (his heir), with Sejanus (the prefect of the praetorian guard), as well as the reasons for his final retirement from Rome. The biography focuses mainly on Tiberius' continuous struggle to meet the demands of his role. David Shotter presents a concise and accessible study of this capable man who was, ultimately, an ineffectual ruler.
