Holland's masterly account of this first wicked century of the Roman empire is, at its heart, a political analysis . . . the story he tells strides onwards across the landscape of grief and horror without pause or stutter . . . Holland is unshockable as he proceeds with breezy, clear-eyed analysis from one degrading display of cruelty and paranoia to the next . . . It is down to his skill as a storyteller that there's no difficulty in imagining that it might all happen again tomorrow (Adam Nicholson Sunday Times)

Deft and skilful . . . Among the many virtues of Tom Holland's terrific history is that he does not shrink from seeing the Roman emperors for what they were: 'the west's primal examples of tyranny' . . .
Dynasty is both a formidable effort to compile what we can know about the ancient world and a sensational story (Nick Cohen Observer)

This is a wonderful, surging narrative - a brilliant and meticulous synthesis of the ancient sources . . . This is a story that should be read by anyone interested in history, politics or human nature - and it has never been better told (Boris Johnson
Mail on Sunday)

This is history in which fact and fiction overlap, rigorously researched and lightened with dashes of humour . . . first-rate ancient history and a compulsively good read (Matthew Dennison
Daily Mail)

A swaggering history of the dynastic house that Julius Caesar built. Nothing entertains like excess and the weird cruelties, bloody intrigues and eye-popping depravities of emperors Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius and Nero are queasily fascinating (
Sunday Express)

A witty and skilful storyteller . . . He recounts with pleasure his racy tales of psychopathic cruelty, incest, paedophilia, matricide, fratricide, assassination and depravity (William Dalrymple
New Statesman)

Brilliant, terrifying and compelling (Alex Preston

A thrilling book by one of the country's best popular historians . . . genuinely breathtaking (
History Today) --Este texto se refiere a una edición agotada o no disponible de este título.

Over the years I’ve read many popular history books about the Roman Empire and the Republic but I continue to be pleasantly surprised how modern authors manage to portray the period or specific elements in a fresh light. Tom Holland also holds the top spot among my favourite historical writers as some of his other works like Rubricon and Millenium left a lasting impression not least because of his narrative prosaic form of writing.

Dynasty is not dissimilar and its prose is presented with the same authority. The book starts where Rubicon ended, with the death of Caesar to lay the foundation of the phenomenal history of the first five emperors. The book manages to unburden itself from the perceptions of either classical or modern historians. And so the reader gets Holland's interpretation of for example how Octavian first converts himself from a battlefield-coward and bloodthirsty co-tyrant to a divine imperial blueprint while forging the Julio-Claudian dynasty - all through his excellent strategic insight and careful manoeuvring of public opinion. It’s a compelling view that would justify Augustus’ preeminent position among the emperors.
From that point on the real, though much more well-known, juice starts; Augustus’ succession issues, his relationship with his daughter Julia, the controversial character of Tiberius (painted here in a relatively favourable light) ect. It’s all material that would fit in perfectly in a Game of Thrones scenario even before it starts to address the cruel antics of Caligula and Nero.
So to me it was a very lively, refreshing read, that is once more particularly well told. Yet its not academic as the author tends to make assumptions and little is questioned, but for that reason it reads well and I guess I was prepared for that. As such I thoroughly enjoyed this work.
