A vivid historical account of the social world of Rome as it moved from republic to empire. In 49 B.C., the seven hundred fifth year since the founding of Rome, Julius Caesar crossed a small border river called the Rubicon and plunged Rome into cataclysmic civil war. Tom Holland’s enthralling account tells the story of Caesar’s generation, witness to the twilight of the Republic and its bloody transformation into an empire. From Cicero, Spartacus, and Brutus, to Cleopatra, Virgil, and Augustus, here are some of the most legendary figures in history brought thrillingly to life. Combining verve and freshness with scrupulous scholarship, Rubicon is not only an engrossing history of this pivotal era but a uniquely resonant portrait of a great civilization in all its extremes of self-sacrifice and rivalry, decadence and catastrophe, intrigue, war, and world-shaking ambition.

After the Rubicon

Congress, Presidents, and the Politics of Waging War

When the United States goes to war, the nation’s attention focuses on the president. As commander in chief, a president reaches the zenith of power, while Congress is supposedly shunted to the sidelines once troops have been deployed abroad. Because of Congress’s repeated failure to exercise its legislative powers to rein in presidents, many have proclaimed its irrelevance in military matters. After the Rubicon challenges this conventional wisdom by illuminating the diverse ways in which legislators influence the conduct of military affairs. Douglas L. Kriner reveals that even in politically sensitive wartime environments, individual members of Congress frequently propose legislation, hold investigative hearings, and engage in national policy debates in the public sphere. These actions influence the president’s strategic decisions as he weighs the political costs of pursuing his preferred military course. Marshalling a wealth of quantitative and historical evidence, Kriner expertly demonstrates the full extent to which Congress materially shapes the initiation, scope, and duration of major military actions and sheds new light on the timely issue of interbranch relations.

Richard Eason’s father committed suicide when Richard was ten years old, and the memory of the event has haunted the young man ever since. His father was a rising star among southern architects when he killed himself, and Richard has followed in his father’s footsteps as an architecture student at Georgia Tech. Still, the mystery of his father’s death will not leave him alone, and the mystery soon becomes an obsession. Meanwhile, with the help of his father’s friend, Tanny, he labors with clever, almost maniacal passion to build a replica of the magnificent, airy cabin his father had designed, built, and perished in. So much of Richard’s character has been shaped in some way by the night his father died. Now, Tanny might be a guiding light for young Richard as he searches for answers. Along with Tanny, Richard has his girlfriend Lefay, an ex-hippie turned corporate executive who calls him Reason. Even with the help of friends, however, Richard has trouble keeping a grasp on reality. He digs deeper and deeper into his father’s life, but he might soon find spending so much time in the past brings disaster upon the present.

Hoping to escape the political spotlight, Bobby Hart, senator from California, declined a presidential run. But while in Germany, the idealistic young politician discovers terrifying evidence of a conspiracy to destroy democracy in America—an unthinkable plot codenamed Rubicon. Someone important is going to die, though Hart doesn't know who, or why, or when. Only two things are clear: it will happen some time before the upcoming election—and once it does, like Caesar's army crossing the fabled river on their relentless march toward Rome, there will be no turning back. Caught in a desperate race against death and time, Bobby Hart must now expose an insidious nightmare that threatens every man, woman, and child in America. Because Rubicon is not about stealing a presidential election—it is about stealing a country.
