Christian Meier is Professor of Ancient History at the University of Munich.

Christian Meier is Professor of Ancient History at the University of Munich. He is one of Europe's leading authorities on the Late Roman Republic and is the author of The Greek Discovery of Politics and The Political Art of Greek Tragedy. Meier has the weaknesses of the Germanic intellect: he is longwinded, dense, and fuzzy at the edges, sometime rhapsodizing incoherently for pages about Some Big Concept he has contrived to explain Caesar's force and character.

Negatives first: Trying to reach conclusions about the psychology of a person who dies over 2,000 years ago is a dubious enterprise. Use of descriptors such as alienation or "outsider" is a 20th century psycho-jargon. Maybe in the original German it's more palatable. Positives: Explaining the differences between present day political conception and those of the Roman Republic is most useful. Caesar was the most interesting and possibly the most pivotal. A major historical thread of the next 1,800 years was seeking the resolution of this problem.

Negatives first: Trying to reach conclusions about the psychology of a person who dies over 2,000 years ago is a dubious enterprise. Use of descriptors such as alienation or "outsider" is a 20th century psycho-jargon. (Maybe in the original German it's more palatable.)

Positives: Explaining the differences between present day political conception and those of the Roman Republic is most useful. The absence of political parties and "-isms" in the modern sense is one. Pointing out and the unity (in the Roman mind)of the state and society versus our contemporary conception as separate is another. The Roman senate was a legislature without a corresponding judicial and executive institutions. The senate attempted to be all three and largely succeeded until the the size of the Republic became to great. A power vacuum was created which resulted in a series of "big men", Pompey, Caesar, Antony, Octavian, etc. Caesar was the most interesting and possibly the most pivotal. A major historical thread of the next 1,800 years was seeking the resolution of this problem.
Whitesmasher
I thought this was a very dull and boring book. In short don't waste your time or money. (...) There is a reason it was that cheap. This book should not be called CAESAR: A Biography. It should be called Rome and the Life of Caesar or Rome: At The Time of Caesar. I felt like the book was more about Rome than Caesar himself. ***Hardcover***
