Divine Julius
by Jacek Bocheński


"Would you like to become a god? This is perfectly doable." 
So starts this fascinating glimpse into the minds of Julius Caesar and his opponents, written in the award-winning brisk style imitating Caesar's own. 
The book takes the format of a modern reader commenting on historical documents. Rather than follow the chronological order of events, the book is divided into four parts, each dedicated to a different aspect of Caesar's political strategy: Cruelty, Benevolence, Love, and Hate. 
A great critical success when it first appeared in 1961, the book was soon banned by the communist regime because it portrayed too accurately the techniques by which a dictatorship manufactures consent. 
Eventually published in several European languages, and considered by many a modern classic, it has been the subject to many academic articles (which will appear as part of a companion volume). Yet, due to the lingering effects of Cold War Era cultural policies, an English translation appears only now.
"This should not be read; it should be savored. It is filet mignon. Let the juice drip down your chin as you mull over every word. What a gift to have this in English!"

Pick up your copy today and find out why a tyrant might now want you to read it.
