The Fall of the Roman Republic shows how the Roman republic was destabilized by the consequences of the unplanned growth of the Roman empire. Drawing on a wealth of recent scholarship, David Shotter tackles in a straightforward way the many problems of the period and the prejudices to which they gave rise. He demonstrates how groups and individuals sought their own advantage from the opportunities offered by imperial expansion, and how this led to confusion and chaos to which the only perceived solution was the introduction of a form of permanent supervision for the Roman republic.
