Examining all aspects of Roman history and civilization from 509-49 B.C.., this Companion spans the development of the classic republican political system and the growth of a world empire. It also documents the ultimate disintegration of the system under the relentless pressure of internal dissension and the boundless ambition of leading politicians. Distinguished European and American scholars present a variety of current approaches towards understanding the political, military, and social aspects of Roman history, as well as its literary and visual culture.ContributorsStephen Oakley, T.
