The Alternative Augustan Age

Edited by Josiah Osgood, Kit Morrell, and Kathryn Welch

  • Challenges the highly entrenched view that Augustus was chiefly responsible for the major political and cultural developments of his age.
  • Emphasizes many continuities with earlier republican history and culture that traditional periodization minimizes.
  • Offers major reinterpretations of figures usually considered Augustus' subordinates, including Agrippa and Maecenas.
