Cicero

Anthony Everitt

John Adams said of Cicero, “All ages of the world have not produced a greater statesman and philosopher combined.” Voltaire said of Cicero, “He taught us how to think.” And yet Anthony Everitt’s authoritative yet accessible work is the first one-volume biography of the Roman statesman in over 25 years. - “Using Cicero’s letters to his good friend Atticus, among other sources, Everitt recreates the fascinating world of political intrigue, sexual decadence and civil unrest of Republican Rome … Everitt’s first book is a brilliant study that captures Cicero’s internal struggles and insecurities as well as his external political successes.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) - “Comprehensive, accessible survey of the personal and political life of lawyer, politician, philosopher, and crank Marcus Tullius Cicero … Masterfully lucid and compelling; sure to be required reading in the Cicero canon.”—Kirkus Reviews
