Barry Strauss - The Death of Caesar: The Story of History's Most Famous Assassination
Politics and Prose, Monday, March 9 at 7pm
Without Shakespeare’s play, the Ides of March might not remind us of the assassination of Julius Caesar; it happened back in 44 BC, after all. But as recounted by Strauss, who has given fresh assessments of ancient history in The battle of Salamis and The Trojan War, the attack was as carefully planned as many coups of more recent decades. Caesar’s generals, with support from the citizenry, planned every detail, doing away with a dictator who threatened to become yet more authoritarian. (Simon &Schuster)
