Stevens and the tradition on Caesar the propagandist ( Barbara Levick _; Caesar and his officers in the Gallic War commentaries ( Kathryn Welch ); Caesar and the presentation of massacre ( Anton Powell ); Noble Gauls and their other in Caesar's propaganda ( Jonathan Barlow ); Caesar's portrayal of Gauls as warriors ( Louis Rawlings ) and 'Instinctive genius': The depiction of Caesar the general ( Adrian Goldsworthy ).
