Augustan Rome (Classical World Series) Wallace-Hadrill offers a particularly sympathetic approach to how the Romans viewed Augustus as a sort of divine saviour figure.

Augustan Rome (Classical World Series). 1853991384 (ISBN13: 9781853991387). Andrew Wallace-Hadrill does a great job of providing his reader a general overview of Augustan Rome without letting the book become just a superficial exercise. Wallace-Hadrill offers a particularly sympathetic approach to how the Romans viewed Augustus as a sort of divine saviour figure, arguing that this was the only way in which they could properly conceptualise his "newness" in the res publica. I would, however, be interested on knowing more about why the Romans were so willing to accept what Augustus had in store.
