For George Washington and his revolutionary contemporaries, the Roman statesman Marcus Porcius Cato (95-46 BCE) was the embodiment of liberty, principle and stoic courage, who chose suicide to avoid becoming a political pawn for Caesar. In this first modern biography the authors place Cato in the context of his turbulent times - an age of terrorism, debt crisis and political corruption - and consider why he ultimately failed in his attempt to save the Republic.
