Bringing together nine biographies from Plutarch's "Parallel Lives" series, this edition examines the lives of major figures in Roman history, from Lucullus (118-57 BC), an aristocratic politician and conqueror of Eastern kingdoms, to Otho (32-69 AD), a reckless young noble who consorted with the tyrannical, debauched emperor Nero before briefly becoming a dignified and gracious emperor himself. Ian Scott-Kilvert's and Christopher Pelling's translations are accompanied by a new introduction, and also includes a separate introduction for each biography, comparative essays of the major figures, suggested further reading, notes and maps. "Rome in Crisis" joins Penguin Classics' complete revised Plutarch in six volumes. Other titles include "On Sparta", "Fall of the Roman Republic", "The Rise of Rome" (forthcoming 2013) and "The Rise and Fall of Athens" (forthcoming 2014).
