This book summarises political events during the reigns of Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero, and the civil wars of the 'year of four emperors'. Assuming no knowledge of Latin the author draws on material including inscriptions and coins and literary history to present a coherent account of the often erratic actions of these emperors.
