Author information

Gaius Julius Caesar (July 100 BC - 15 March 44 BC) was a Roman general and statesman and a distinguished writer of Latin prose. He played a critical role in the gradual transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. Much of Caesar's life is known from his own accounts of his military campaigns, and from other contemporary sources, mainly the letters and speeches of Cicero and the historical writings of Sallust. The later biographies of Caesar by Suetonius and Plutarch are also major sources. His Commentaries on the Gallic Wars is one of two of his writings that have come down to us in modern times. (editor) Vincent W. Rospond received his Master's in Eastern European History from the University of Illinois as well as studying at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and the MBA program at Seton Hall University.
