DESCRIPTION:   This book is an addition to the very readable series that looks 
at the use of terror. The Roman Emperors were mostly monsters of one sort or 
another, very few being wise leaders of an Empire. -  Highly Recommended

The Republic was replaced by Emperors who came from a relatively small number of families and 
mostly came from a military background. They were used to brutality and license as soldiers of Rome, 
but also reflected the interests and values of many Romans. The Circus was a major entertainment and 
featured excesses and brutality. It would therefore be surprising if any Emperor behaved differently, 
although some did very much better than others.

The author has reviewed a selection of Emperors who represented some of the worst. This is an 
interesting account of the use of State Terror and fits well with what has become a popular book series.
