Following this major feat was the beginning of Caesar’s ten-year dictatorship that the tyrant had always desired. The throne of Rome and the crowning of king was not far within the eye sight of the ambitious Julius Caesar. It was this point that the numerous authors have accounted for the dictator’s assassination. These writers claim that the fear of monarchy, jealousy within the senate, and a threat to the Roman republic government led to the assassination of Julius Caesar. Rome, a strong and conquering nation had much of their support in a republic form of government to keep them from a king.
History and historical fiction are virtually identical, realistically only being separated by one major difference; history is an account of the past, presented through facts while historical fiction recognizes the facts but is flexible with the author’s use of fiction. At face value, historical fiction appears to be virtually pointless; why would fiction be relevant in history, a recollection of the past based on facts? A historical novelist, Steve Wiegenstein, discussed the purpose of historical fiction in his writing “Understanding the Past” where he states, “We turn to historical fiction not for a comprehensive understanding of an era or event but for a sense of what the lived experience of that era would have been like; not for what happened,
The fact that The Handmaid's Tale is based on past events and is still referenceable thirty years later shows the importance of this story. In an piece she wrote on the novel in regard to the current political climate, Atwood stated "In this divisive climate, in which hate for many groups seems on the rise and scorn for democratic institutions is being expressed by extremists of all stripes, it is a certainty that someone, somewhere - many, I would guess - are writing down what is happening as they themselves are experiencing it Or they will remember, and record later, if they can." (atwood on a what it means in age of trump). There might be even more Offreds and books like The Handmaid's Tale in the future. Overall, the themes of segregation, lack of rights, and sexual repression are relatable and can be found frequently in the novel and within the world at
The experience that you get from reading this is similar to being told a bed time story because of how you are able to imagine and visualize what is happening. Personally, as a take away I now know the origin of how Rome was built and some of the myths behind it like Romulus and Remus for example. I was surprised that Livy would describe both tales of a story too because in my experience ancient scholars would only write what they believed and that was that. Then in the book when Romulus was King, how he tricked his neighbors to go into Rome, so he and his people could take women to marry and how it ended with the women saying it was all their fault sets the standards of how women were perceived back then. Which was trouble, even though the women didn’t do anything (not including the part of the book where Tullia convinced her husband to kill her father), but that’s how it all worked back
Riots and the concentrated, borderline tyrannical, power of the Roman principate go hand and hand with each other as the steady balance between appeasing the emperor and appeasing the Roman citizen was tested. Ben Kelly’s Riot Control and Imperial Ideology in the Roman Empire dives into great historical depth to uncover the reasons why Roman thought and handling about riots is talked about in the way that various ancient sources depict it and uncovering what the true ideology behind controlling them was. Kelly gives historical context through the sampling and analysis of great Roman historians such as “Tacitus, Suetonius, and Cassius Dio” (Kelly 153) and the opinions of various third party agents found in the “Acts of apostles and the so-called Acta Alexandrinorum.” (Kelly 153) Kelly combines his historical sampling with introspection in order to both combine the varying authors and to create a narrative that interlaces various opinions into an easy-to-understand argument for why ideologies, surrounding the riots, existed as they did. Kelly’s article divides itself into five distinct sections over the course of 23 pages. The sections linearly follow as such: “Reports About Riots,” (151) “When Should the Authorities Respond to Riots,” (156) “How Should the Authorities Respond to Riots,” (160) “What Happened When
Summary: In his speech, Winston Churchill tried to inspire his fellow British citizens to go to war against Germany. He was a member of the parliament in England and later he became the Prime Minister of that state. He lived during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, who presented him many awards. He went through World War II. Churchill then realized that Adolf Hitler and his Nazi were coming to England to invade the state.
Life After Life relates to the topic of morality and choices because at one point Ursula attempts to kill Hitler. The book of course raises the age old question if you could kill someone to save millions of people, should you. The novel’s themes of fate and free will tie in nicely with the other sources

Although he supported the idea of people rising up against tyranny, the violence that characterized the French Revolution troubled him. In the preface to his novel he says “to add something to the popular and picturesque means understanding that terrible time”. The story is set in London, Paris and the French countryside at the time of French Revolution. The book is sympathetic to the overthrow of the French aristocracy but highly critical of the reign of terror that followed. The whole book is dominated by the guillotine-tumbrels thundering to and fro and the bloody knives.
I have also reviewed another interesting study on the subject: "Pakistan's blasphemy laws. From Islamic Empires to the Taliban" by Shemeem Burney Abbas. The book explores how the Islamic states have handled the blasphemy laws for their own interests, but at the same time against their own citizens, by promoting the idea that the laws are prescribed by the Koran. Furthermore, the author argues that the blasphemy laws are tools in the "arsenal of extensive militant ideology" instituted in the name if Islam. Throughout in his study, Abbas examines the evolution of the laws and presents them in a historical perspective, starting with Prophet Muhammad's era and continuing with various regimes that used these types of laws to validate their politics and
