Blackwell North Amer Caesar's Women is the story of Gaius Julius Caesar's rise to prominence in his world, beginning with his return to Rome in 68 B.C. as he prepares to dominate a new battlefield - the Roman Forum. The wars he fights within it are waged with words, plots, schemes, and metaphorical assassination. Today's ally may be tomorrow's foe; everything shifts and changes within this political arena. Caesar's victories are not limited to the Forum, however. Penned inside Rome for these memorable ten years, Caesar also conquers Rome's noblewomen. Yet the one thing he never gives to any of the women who love him or want him is himself. To Caesar, love is just another weapon in his political arsenal. He is as willing to sacrifice his daughter on the altar of his ambition as he is ready to seize other means of moving toward his ultimate goal - to be the greatest of all Rome's First Men. Was he villain, or was he hero? That argument is still being debated today, for Caesar has never ceased to fascinate the passing generations. Caesar's Women reveals the man behind the legend, and displays a world that, despite its alien trappings echoes our own too closely for comfort.
