about this item

This edition is to support students reading chapters three to seven of the Annals in preparation for the British certification body OCR's AS and A-level examination in Latin. The selection describes the awkwardness and impact of the beginning of Tiberius' principate and the rebellions of opportunistic soldiers, and provides students with an example of Tacitus' pithy, acerbic prose. Roland Mayer introduces the historical background to the events, the impact of autocratic government, and the historical sources. Katharine Radice provides notes and vocabulary for the Latin.
