Product description


"A Companion to the Roman Republic is a really exciting new resource. The contributors are individually heavy-hitters and collectively form a first-rate international team. The work covers not just the topics one would have counted on but other new ones that deserve to become canonical." Andrew M. Riggsby, University of Texas, Austin "A comprehensive work ? It far outstrips any competitor in this subject." John Murrell, Journal of Classics Teaching "A kaleidoscopic variety of points of views and insightful commentaries that finally does justice to the complexity of the subject and of its possible interpretations, while always remaining readable and clear." Nicola Terrenato, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

From the Back Cover

This Companion provides an authoritative and up-to-date overview of Roman republican history as it is currently practiced. The volumetakes account of recent developments that have enriched our picture of the Republic. These include the continuing archaeological exploration of Italy, increasingly sophisticated approaches to textual sources, and the opening up of new areas of historical study and debate such as the nature of the republican political system, Roman identity formation, representation of the body, collective memory, and demography and social structure. At the same time, the book retains the drama of the Republic's rise and fall.

The Companion is divided into three parts. The opening section emphasizes both the evidence of texts and physical remains, and the models and assumptions that scholars bring to these artifacts. This section includes coverage of the role played by the physical geography and environment of Italy. The second part offers a compact but detailed narrative of military and political developments from the birth of Rome through to the death of Julius Caesar; while the third and longest part highlights recent research and current controversies in the field.
