The traditional image of Mark Antony – a simple, hard-drinking but capable soldier duped and manipulated by Cleopatra's sharper wits – was created by the propaganda of his enemy Augustus and the hostility of early historians. This biography offers a fresh reappraisal of a pivotal figure in Roman history, focusing on his positive traits, such as personal courage, integrity and loyalty, and arguing that he had a precise political vision for the Roman world after the tumultuous decades of civil war.
