    New York's Gilded Age was a time in which many, if not all, of the city's residents were forced to locate within themselves a spirit of vitality, survival, and whatever wealth they could muster. Yet, far above the downtown tenements and working class slums of this new world, three well-to-do young adults were caught in a struggle of their own; to figure out just how love and emotion can prevail among the complexities of high society. 'The Age of Innocence' is Edith Wharton's hauntingly incisive exploration of love, wealth, and heartbreak-- as can still be found in New York today-- insuch a way that readers of this masterpiece will surely tell; never again will a novel of its kind capture such grace.

    (Everyman's Library). The complete historical works of the greatest cronicler of the Roman Empire, in one volume. A brilliant narrator and a master sytlist, Tacitus served as a Roman administrator and senator, a career that gave him an intimate view of the empire at its highest levels and of many of the dramatic, colorful, & often violent events of the first century A.D. In the Annals, he writes about the aftermath of Caesar Augustus's death and the ensuing decadence & corruption; in the Histories, he describes an empire in tumult. Without Tacitus's account, our history would be in the dark.
