Revised throughout to take account of recent research in the field, this second edition of Nero provides an accessible introduction to Nero, emperor of Rome from AD 54 to AD 68The reign of Nero is often judged to be the embodiment of the extravagance and corruption that have, for many, come to symbolise ancient Rome. David Shotter provides a reassessment of this view and discusses major issues including:- Nero's early life and accession to power- Nero's perception of himself- Nero's domestic and international policies- the reasons for Nero's fall from power and its aftermath.Also including an expanded bibliography and a new index, this will be an essential tool in the study of Rome and its history.
