Maternal Megalomania Book Description :

Ancient authors emphasize dramatic moments in the life of Julia Domna, wife of Roman emperor Septimius Severus (193–211). They accuse her of ambition unforgivable in a woman, of instigating civil war to place her sons on the throne, and of resorting to incest to maintain her hold on power. In imperial propaganda, however, Julia Domna was honored with unprecedented titles that celebrated her maternity, whether it was in the role of mother to her two sons (both future emperors) or as the metaphorical mother to the empire. Imperial propaganda even equated her to the great mother goddess, Cybele, endowing her with a public prominence well beyond that of earlier imperial women. Her visage could be found gracing everything from state-commissioned art to privately owned ivory dolls. In Maternal Megalomania, Julie Langford unmasks the maternal titles and honors of Julia Domna as a campaign on the part of the administration to garner support for Severus and his sons. Langford looks to numismatic, literary, and archaeological evidence to reconstruct the propaganda surrounding the empress. She explores how her image was tailored toward different populations, including the military, the Senate, and the people of Rome, and how these populations responded to propaganda about the empress. She employs Julia Domna as a case study to explore the creation of ideology between the emperor and its subjects.

The Fever Chronicles Book Description :

Society can't take much more. The country has finally reached its breaking point. A rogue and unidentified hero known only as Lodestar, has come from the depths of somewhere safe to try and assassinate President Walter G. Upham in an effort to take the country back, and therefore the world, but they have failed. Fallen back into obscurity as quickly as they rose out from it, this is just the push the Millennials need to finally come together and take their lives back. But the recent assassination attempt has played dirty tricks on the already ego tripping and power-hungry president. There seems to be no limits to what Walter G. Upham might do now. His hate and anger knows no bounds. He has become more of a megalomaniac than a democratic leader. The potential for such extremes had always been there, just boiling underneath the surface, but now the Millennials want to use his new fragile mental state against him. For the first time since they were oppressed, the Millennials are finally getting the upper hand. Whatever happens next will need to happen quickly and precisely. The room for error is next to none. Does the underground resistance have what it takes to remove a tyrant from office?
