Robert Harris Imperium A novel of Ancient Rome Hardback with covered dust jacket 305 pages An ex-library copy in very good condition A used book with ex-library ink stamps on top page edges, top page inner cover and title page of the book. Book Overview: FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF "FATHERLAND" AND "POMPEII" COMES THE MOST PROVOCATIVE AND BRILLIANT NOVEL OF ANTIQUITY SINCE "I, CLAUDIUS" -- IMPERIUM A CAUTIONARY TALE OF CICERO, THE GREATEST ORATOR OF ALL TIME, AND HIS EXTRAORDINARY STRUGGLE FOR POWER IN ROME. When Tiro, the confidential secretary (and slave) of a Roman senator, opens the door to a terrified stranger on a cold November morning, he sets in motion a chain of events that will eventually propel his master into one of the most suspenseful courtroom dramas in history. The stranger is a Sicilian, a victim of the island's corrupt Roman governor, Verres. The senator is Marcus Cicero -- an ambitious young lawyer and spellbinding orator, who at the age of twenty-seven is determined to attain "imperium" -- supreme power in the state. Of all the great figures of the Roman world, none was more fascinating or charismatic than Cicero. And Tiro -- the inventor of shorthand and author of numerous books, including a celebrated biography of his master (which was lost in the Dark Ages) -- was always by his side. Compellingly written in Tiro's voice, "Imperium" is the re-creation of his vanished masterpiece, recounting in vivid detail the story of Cicero's quest for glory, competing with some of the most powerful and intimidating figures of his -- or any other -- age: Pompey, Caesar, Crassus, and the many other powerful Romans who changed history. Robert Harris, the world's master of innovative historical fiction, lures us into a violent, treacherous world of Roman politics at once exotically different from and yet startlingly similar to our own -- a world of Senate intrigue and electoral corruption, specialprosecutors and political adventurism -- to describe how one clever, compassionate, devious, vulnerable man fought to reach the top. 📮For Mail & Delivery Applicable to all parcels: 🛵Metro Manila S•55M•65L•80 🚚Fastrack (covered areas only) Rizal •70 Cavite & Laguna •85 For outside covered areas ↙️ ✈️Provincial or remote areas sf: |LuzVisMin|•150 🚀via Zoom Courier|JRS Express PLEASE READ: 🛑List price as posted is fixed. ⛔️Strictly NO haggling. 🚫low ball offers will be ignored. ❌NO trade or swap. ▪️Buyers must be responsible for payment once offer has been accepted.
