    Set in the context of Victorian social and medical debate, this novel is about rebellion, posing fundamental questions about the nature of social authority and obedience. This revised edition draws on recent theoretical work on gender and class.

    The author has brought these people and this period to life. Very enjoyable book - and well acted.

    The Annals, Part 2 picks up in the year A.D. 32 with the increasingly menacing and tyrannical behavior of Tiberius. With hundreds murdered or driven to suicide and many more in exile, Tiberius descends steadily into growing lust and debauchery on his private estate on the isle of Capri. Overseas, Rome is victorious in her struggle with Parthia, and as Tiberius is being smothered to death in A.D. 37 by Macro, peace at last comes to the eastern frontier.

    Overall

    I thought I could learn some interesting Roman history, but there is little of interest in the way this book was written - my fault for not getting the author. You'll hear a number of different full names in one sentence, most of whom the average person has never heard of. It makes this very difficult to follow. I quit listening after the first 90 minutes...
