His background, his character and the manner of his early success are examined and his career as a whole is considered in relation to issues of foreign policy, to social problems and to various trends in political behaviour. The crisis of 133 BC falls within this framework and the links between that crisis and Scipio's career are discussed.

13 Bartsch, Shadi IDEOLOGY IN COLD BLOOD A Reading of Lucan's Civil War
Harvard University Press 1998 0674442911 / 9780674442917 Hardcover Very Good in Near Fine dust jacket 
Scholar's small bookplate to ffep (R. E. Fantham). Marginalia in pen to about 3 pages (a word or two). Else very minor shelfwear to book and DJ. ; Is Lucan's brilliant and grotesque epic Civil War an example of ideological poetry at its most flagrant, or is it a work that despairingly proclaims the meaninglessness of ideology? Shadi Bartsch offers a startlingly new answer to this split debate on the Roman poet's magnum opus. Reflecting on the disintegration of the Roman republic in the wake of the civil war that began in 49 B. C. , Lucan (writing during the grim tyranny of Nero's Rome) recounts that fateful conflict with a strangely ambiguous portrayal of his republican hero, Pompey. Although the story is one of a tragic defeat, the language of his epic is more often violent and nihilistic than heroic and tragic. And Lucan is oddly fascinated by the graphic destruction of lives, the violation of human bodies--an interest paralleled in his deviant syntax and fragmented poetry. In an analysis that draws on contemporary political thought ranging from Hannah Arendt and Richard Rorty to the poetry of Vietnam veterans, as well as on literary theory and ancient sources, Bartsch finds in the paradoxes of Lucan's poetry both a political irony that responds to the universally perceived need for, yet suspicion of, ideology, and a recourse to the redemptive power of storytelling. This shrewd and lively book contributes substantially to our understanding of Roman civilization and of poetry as a means of political expression. ; Revealing Antiquity; 236 pages

14 Beagon, Mary THE ELDER PLINY ON THE HUMAN ANIMAL Natural History Book 7. Translated with Introduction and Historical Commentary
Oxford University Press 2005 019927701X / 9780199277018 Softcover Very Good+ 
Very minor shelfwear to wraps. ; As a detailed study of the human animal, described by its author as the raison d'etre of nature, Book Seven of the elder Pliny's Natural History is crucial to the understanding of the work as a whole. In addition, however, it provides valuable insight into the extraordinary complex of ideas and beliefs current in Pliny's era, many of which have resonances for other eras and cultures. The present study includes a substantial introduction examining the background to Pliny's life, thought, and writing, together with a modern English translation, and a detailed commentary which emphasizes the importance of Book Seven as possibly the most fascinating cultural record surviving from early imperial Rome. ; Clarendon Ancient History Series; 536 pages

16 Braund, David & Christopher Gill (Eds. ) MYTH, HISTORY AND CULTURE IN REPUBLICAN ROME Studies in Honour of T. P. Wiseman
University of Exeter Press 2003 0859896625 / 9780859896627 Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Handwritten letter from T. P. Wiseman to R. E. Fantham tipped in thanking Fantham for her contributions to this book. Faint shelfwear to DJ. ; In this collection of essays, an international team of outstanding scholars engage with the ideas and methods of Professor Peter Wiseman's past and present work. They provide a sustained response to the work of one of the most widely respected Roman historians of this generation. The contributions range over myth (Corialanus and Remus) , the interplay between historiography, literature and myth-making (on Cleopatra, for instance) , and art and story-telling at Boscoreale. They explore Roman drama (Pacuvius) and links between drama and Virgil's Aeneid; they discuss Catullus in Bithynia and Cicero on Greek and Roman culture. Professor Wiseman has been at the forefront of innovative research in Roman history, historiography, literature in context, drama and myth, for many years. His work is marked by the combination of a powerful historical imagination with an acute sense of the limitations of our knowledge and of the need to negotiate with the complexity of our sources. ; 352 pages
