This is a review of a new book on Julius Caesar, published in The Wall Street Journal December 1, 2017. My bolded sections.
I have my first book coming out next week. Three years in the making, it’s different from the typical focus of this blog. The title of the book is, The Progressive Gene: How Genetics Influence the Morality of the Left.1

I have just completed an Audio Tour of the Roman Forum in conjunction with Voicemap, a company that offers audio tours of cities and famous places. The concept is interesting. You play the tour on your phone and the app uses GPS to know when to start and stop the narrative based on your location.2
Almost everyone knows the story of the death of Julius Caesar, as Shakespeare has reminded us. He was assassinated on the Ides of March 44 BC by a group of disgruntled Senators who believed him to be on a path to become dictator and destroy the Republic.1
On the eve of the Ides of March we start with a cartoon -- Caesar with a contemporary twist.
My thanks to Guido Giuntini for allowing me to use this.
Does everyone know the details of Caesar’s death? Perhaps a review would be helpful.
I decided to interrupt my series on the Byzantine Empire to write a piece about the current political climate in the United States. Not in my lifetime has there been such a state of confusion in American politics, so I’d like to try and ease people’s minds using ancient history as a context.6
