Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Book Review: THE ASSASSINATION OF JULIUS CAESAR By Michael Parenti. It needs to be at least 750 words.

It is a book written with people’s viewpoint. He presents us with a story of popular resistance against entrenched power and wealth. He has successfully recreated the struggles of the late Republic of Rome.

Parenti has separated the book in different chapters where the subjects range from Caesar the Popularis,

to Cicero the conservative. The life and death of Julius Caesar is the focal point of this work. He has tried to change the mindset of people from what the “Gentlemen Historians” had led us to believe. They had referred to Caesar as a tyrant who trod on the freedom of the Republican Rome. Parenti endorses with evidence that Caesar was actually representative of popular democratic tendencies among the Roman people. He also emphasizes that Caesar’s enemies and assassins really stood for the interests of a small elite portion of the ruling class.

The class struggle in Rome was between the wealthy and the general public. Caesar represented the common people and tried to improve the living standards of the people. Parenti points out that as a popularis he tried to introduce laws to better the conditions of the poor, which ultimately cost him his life. Parenti brings to light the oppression of the ruling class in various ways. He highlights the torture by the creditors when he says that their policies created “penury and debt” that crushed average citizens. Caesar tried to alleviate even this suffering of the working class.

Caesar was blamed for the destruction of the great library at Alexandria. Parenti evidenced that the destruction of ancient culture, the burning of books and the closing down of libraries and educational institutions was done by the “Christ worshipers” when they came to power. This was amply demonstrated through his words, “Though depicted as an oasis of learning amidst the brutish ignorance of the Dark Ages, the Christian church actually was the major purveyor of that ignorance.” All these instances prove how Parenti has
