About the Author
Luca Fezzi is professor of Roman history at the University of Padua and author of numerous books in Italian, including most recently, The Corrupt: An Inquiry by Marcus Tullius Cicero.
"A fascinating re-examination of an event that is treated as settled history."--Mark Lardas, The Galveston County News
"A gripping account of the primal political crisis in Western history, fusing deep scholarship with expertly paced narrative."--Tom Holland, author of Rubicon
"Charts with pinpoint precision the chess-like movements of Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great as they inched towards one of the most climactic moments in Roman history. Fezzi powerfully captures the tension of the times. Thrilling."--Daisy Dunn, author of In the Shadow of Vesuvius
"Shows with astonishing clarity and drama the how, why, and what came next of one of the most pivotal gambles in world history."--Paul Chrystal, author of Rome: Republic into Empire
"A brilliant intertwining of the ancient sources for the dramatic and violent years of the civil war between Caesar and Pompey that brought the Roman Republic crashing down. Fascinating in its detail, poignant in its quotations, and provocative in its approach."--Thomas R. Martin, author of Ancient Rome
"Fezzi presents the leaders of the Roman civil war in a balanced, rigorous way, and without undue bias or moralism."--Carlo Franco, Alias - Il Manifesto
