Reader recommendation: Julius Caesar

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I just completed reading a new well written, interesting biography by Phillip Freeman entitled Julius Caesar. This work shows the many contradictions of Caesar as a military dictator who was capable of great cruelty and an intellectual who was a gifted writer and sponsored many social and public works.
