Back cover copy
Marcus Aurelius is one of the few rulers of empire whose writings have outlasted his practical achievements. His reign as Emperor of the Roman world (AD 161 to 280) was long remembered as a golden age in which the citizens enjoyed the gentle rule of a philosophic sage. The truth was of course not so simple. The 'Meditations' of Marcus' old age, composed while on campaign, give us exceptional access to his mind.
