Pressestimmen

"A masterpiece of historical writing--not merely a standard work to be read as a matter of compulsion by (at the least) all ancient historians, but rather an immediate classic whose effects will long be felt and which in the present generation cannot be superseded.' K. R. Bradley, Gnomon

4.0 von 5 Sternen very precise 22. April 2016
Von William Heidelberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Surely the best take on this subject, but the book is gigantic size, makes it hard to read in bed

Just great. I really can't recommend this highly enough. Well written and absolutely dense with detail and sources.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Invaluable Source 13. März 2013
Von Arch Stanton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Fergus Millar's book on the Roman emperor is the main resource on this topic. It analyzes the position of the emperor in relation to various other topics. These topics vary from the functions of the emperor to the emperor's companions to his relations with the cities and senate. These chapters cover topics related to the emperor such as imperial capitals, his advisers, his relationship with local councils, and the church. This book is intended as a corrective to previous books which he feels didn't adequately describe what the emperor did but instead described what they thought he should do. Thus this book goes back to the basics and provides examples from countless sources from across the Roman world.

Whether you accept his arguments or not will depend largely on what you think of his use of sources. While he has a wider ranging knowledge of the sources than seems possible he offers no analysis or consideration of them treating largely fictitious documents like the HA (or even Vergil) with as much seriousness as the major historians and inscriptions. He never really compares the accuracy of sources so much as lists examples from them that suit his thesis. To make clear my position I feel that he offers a lot of useful information and good ideas, but that a thorough knowledge of the sources is required beforehand. Sometimes fictitious sources can be used to prove a point if that point has to do with contemporary perceptions, but I am not convinced much of the time that his use of them is appropriate. Each example he uses must be judged based on your knowledge of that source and its relevance to the current topic. Not that non-professionals can't get much of value from this, but I'd be recommend when using any of his examples to check the nature of the source first.

But whether or not this is the best way of using sources it seems hard to argue with his conclusions. I disagree with some of them of course (just because people wanted emperors to respond to petitions doesn't mean they always did, nor that their responses were done personally) but on the whole his work is solid. It isn't exactly an easy read, but if you use it correctly it is an invaluable source. I would recommend though that you read this in conjunction with Campbell's The Emperor and the Roman Army since Millar doesn't mention soldiers in his book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic account by renowned Historian 29. Januar 2009
Von Woflgang Largo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you have any interest in the varied roles and attributes of Roman emperors, then you should include this book in your personal library. After seeing this book appear in the bibliographies of so many notable histories of the Roman Empire, I had to check it out. Now I refer to it often in my research. It covers everything from Imperial palaces, to the Praetorian Guards and German bodyguard, freedmen secretaries, Imperial treasury and wealth, relationships to the senate, the Emperor as Judge, etc. It ranges from Augustus to Constantine.
