Cicero: The Life and Times of Rome's Greatest Politician by Anthony Everitt

Anthony Everitt brings us a biography of Cicero, a lawyer, orator, and politician in Rome during the first century B.C. He worked doggedly to create and maintain a constitution and system of laws for Rome, one of equal rights for all its citizens in the republic. His system was cast aside when his childhood-friend Julius Caesar crowned himself emperor. Everitt's book not only brings us the story of this multi-talented man, but the story of ancient Rome and Cicero's dream for what it could have been. The Houston Chronicle says, "The book's enthusiasm, historical refinement and narrative energy should appeal to a generation that may not know just how cool life could be in ancient Rome."
