Contains Cicero’sDe OratoreandBrutus,influential sources over the centuries for ideas on rhetoric and trainshy;ing for public leadership. nbsp; TheDe Oratore,written in 55 B.C., argues that rhetoric is socially significant because states are established and mainshy;tained through the leadership of eloquent men. nbsp; The three books of dialogues in this volume feature discussions between well-known figures in Roman history, inshy;cluding Lucius Crassus, Marcus Anshy;tonius, Quintus Lutatius Catulus, Quinshy;tus Marcius Scaevola, Caius Aurelius Cotta, Julius Caesar Strabo Vopicus, and Publius Sulpicus Rufus. nbsp; TheBrutuscontinues the theme of the dialogues, giving a history of eminent orators whose performances exemplify the Ciceronian theory that rhetoric finalshy;ly adds up to leadership.

Born in Arpinum on January 3, 106 B.C., Marcus Tullius Cicero was a Roman orator, writer, and politician. In Rome, Cicero studied law, oratory, philosophy, and literature, before embarking on a political career. Banished from Rome in 59 B.C. for the execution of some members of the Catiline group, Cicero devoted himself to literature. Cicero was pardoned by Julius Caesar in 47 B.C., and returned to Rome to deliver his famous speeches, known as the "Philippics," urging the senate to declare war on Marc Antony. Cicero's chief works, written between 46 and 44 B.C., can be classified in the categories of philosophical works, letters, and speeches. The letters, edited by his secretary Tiro, showcase a unique writing style and charm. The most popular work of the period was De Officiis, a manual of ethics, in which Cicero espoused fundamental Christian values half a century before Christ. Cicero was murdered in Formiae, Italy, on December 4, 43 B.C., by Antony's soldiers after the triumvirate of Antony, Lepidus, and Octavius was formed.
