description

`All over Italy men were conscripted, and weapons requisitioned; money was exacted from towns, and taken from shrines; and all the laws of god and man were overturned.'' The Civil War is Caesar''s masterly account of the celebrated war between himself and his great rival Pompey, from the crossing of the Rubicon in January 49 B.C. to Pompey''s death and the start of the Alexandrian War in the autumn of the following year. His unfinished account of the continuing struggle with Pomepy''s heirs and followers is completed by the three anonymous accounts of the Alexandrian, African, and Spanish Wars, which bring the story down to within a year of Caesar''s assassination in March 44 B.C. This generously annotated edition places the war in context and enables the reader to grasp it both in detail and as a whole.
John Carter retired from a Senior Lectureship at Royal Holloway, University of London in 1992. His most recent translation is the Greek historian Appian''s account of the Roman Civil Wars (1996).
