IN THE SHADOW OF THE GODS: The Emperor in World History
In this work Lieven projects the power, terror, magnificence and confidence of imperial monarchies, tracking what they had in common as well as what made some rise to glory and others fail spectacularly, and at what price each destiny was reached. The rule of the emperor may be over but here Lieven shows us how we live with its political and cultural legacies today. Photos, many in color.
