Description

If you've always been fascinated by ancient Rome, then this is must-have for you or the history buff in your life. It's got it all - love, scandal, lust, murder, jealousy, gluttony, pleasure-seeking, treachery, adultery, wars, horrific battles, and public drunkenness, to say nothing of those two bad boys - Caligula and Nero.

"Besides the abuse of free-born lads, and the debauch of married women, [Nero] committed a rape upon Rubria, a Vestal Virgin, ... gelded the boy Sporus, and endeavored to transform him into a woman ... [and] even went so far as to marry him ..."
Suetonius Tranquillus
