10 Ando, Clifford IMPERIAL IDEOLOGY AND PROVINCIAL LOYALTY IN THE ROMAN EMPIRE
University of California Press 2000 0520220676 / 9780520220676 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
A few tiny chips to DJ else fine. ; xxi, 494pp.; Classics and Contemporary Thought; 494 pages; The Roman empire remains unique. Although Rome claimed to rule the world, it did not. Rather, its uniqueness stems from the culture it created and the loyalty it inspired across an area that stretched from the Tyne to the Euphrates. Moreover, the empire created this culture with a bureaucracy smaller than that of a typical late-twentieth-century research university. In approaching this problem, Clifford Ando does not ask the ever-fashionable question, Why did the Roman empire fall? Rather, he asks, Why did the empire last so long? Imperial Ideology and Provincial Loyalty in the Roman Empire argues that the longevity of the empire rested not on Roman military power but on a gradually realized consensus that Roman rule was justified. This consensus was itself the product of a complex conversation between the central government and its far-flung peripheries. Ando investigates the mechanisms that sustained this conversation, explores its contribution to the legitimation of Roman power, and reveals as its product the provincial absorption of the forms and content of Roman political and legal discourse. Throughout, his sophisticated and subtle reading is informed by current thinking on social formation by theorists such as Max Weber, Jrgen Habermas, and Pierre Bourdieu.

11 Ando, Clifford LAW, LANGUAGE, AND EMPIRE IN THE ROMAN TRADITION
University of Pennsylvania Press 2011 0812243544 / 9780812243543 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
The Romans depicted the civil law as a body of rules crafted through communal deliberation for the purpose of self-government. Yet, as Clifford Ando demonstrates in Law, Language, and Empire in the Roman Tradition, the civil law was also an instrument of empire: many of its most characteristic features developed in response to the challenges posed when the legal system of Rome was deployed to embrace, incorporate, and govern people and cultures far afield. Ando studies the processes through which lawyers at Rome grappled with the legal pluralism resulting from imperial conquests. He focuses primarily on the tools—most prominently analogy and fiction—used to extend the system and enable it to regulate the lives of persons far from the minds of the original legislators, and he traces the central place that philosophy of language came to occupy in Roman legal thought. In the second part of the book Ando examines the relationship between civil, public, and international law. Despite the prominence accorded public and international law in legal theory, it was civil law that provided conceptual resources to those other fields in the Roman tradition. Ultimately it was the civil law's implication in systems of domination outside its own narrow sphere that opened the door to its own subversion. When political turmoil at Rome upended the institutions of political and legislative authority and effectively ended Roman democracy, the concepts and language that the civil law supplied to the project of Republican empire saw their meanings transformed. As a result, forms of domination once exercised by Romans over others were inscribed in the workings of law at Rome, henceforth to be exercised by the Romans over themselves. ; Empire and After; 184 pages

13 Arena, Valentina LIBERTAS AND THE PRACTICE OF POLITICS IN THE LATE ROMAN REPUBLIC
Cambridge University Press 2013 1107028175 / 9781107028173 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
This is a comprehensive analysis of the idea of libertas and its conflicting uses in the political struggles of the late Roman Republic. By reconstructing Roman political thinking about liberty against the background of Classical and Hellenistic thought, it excavates two distinct intellectual traditions on the means allowing for the preservation and the loss of libertas. Considering the interplay of these traditions in the political debates of the first century BC, Dr Arena offers a significant reinterpretation of the political struggles of the time as well as a radical reappraisal of the role played by the idea of liberty in the practice of politics. She argues that, as a result of its uses in rhetorical debates, libertas underwent a form of conceptual change at the end of the Republic and came to legitimise a new course of politics, which led progressively to the transformation of the whole political system. ; 336 pages

23 Baehr, Peter CAESAR AND THE FADING OF THE ROMAN WORLD A Study in Republicanism and Caesarism
Transaction Publishers 1997 1560003049 / 9781560003045 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very minor shelfwear to DJ now protected in mylar. ; Contents: Caesar within the Republican imagination; Advent of Caesarism; Bismarck and the Crisis of German Politics: max Weber and His contemporaries I; From German Politics to Universal Sociology: max Weber and His contemporaries II; Caesarism in Twentieth-Century Political and Sociological Thought. ; 359 pages; For many centuries, Julius Caesar was a name that evoked strong feelings among educated people. Some of these responses were complimentary, but others came from the point of view of "political republicanism"—which envisaged Caesar as a historical symbol for some of the most dangerous tendencies a polity could experience. Caesar represented everything that republicans detested—corruption, demagogy, usurpation—and as such, provided an antimodel against which genuine political virtue could be measured. Caesar and the Fading of the Roman World examines the reception of Caesar in republican thought until the late eighteenth century and his transformation in the nineteenth, when he enjoyed a major rehabilitation in the literary culture and historiography of the day. Critical of hereditary monarchy and emphasizing the collective political obligations citizens owed to their city or commonwealth, republican thinkers sought to cultivate institutions and mores best adapted to self-governing liberty. The republican idiom became an integral element in the discourse of the American revolutionaries and constitution builders during the eighteenth century, and of their counterparts in France. In the nineteenth century, Caesar enjoyed a major rehabilitation; from being a pariah, he was elevated in the writings of people like Byron, De Quincey, Mommsen, Froude, and Nietzsche to the greatest statesman of his age. Simultaneously, Caesar's name continued to function as a term of polemic in the emergence of a new debate on what came to be called "Caesarism." While the metamorphosis of Caesar's reputation is studied here as a process in its own right, it is also meant to highlight the increasing enfeeblement of the republican tradition. The transformation of Caesar's image is a sure sign of changes within the wider present-day political culture and evidence of the emergence of new problems and challenges. Drawing on history, political theory, and sociology, Caesar and the Fading of the Roman World uses the image of Caesar as a way of interpreting broader political and cultural tendencies. Peter Baehr discusses the significance of living not in a postmodern society, but in a postclassical one in which ideas of political obligation have become increasingly emaciated and in which the theoretical resources for the care of our public world have become correspondingly scarce.

This alliance was formalized in a treaty, the document which provides the corpus for this study. In this treaty is a list of "divine witnesses", which comprise the "official pantheon" of Carthage. The organization of the material and the presentation of the god-lists of all the treaties in a series of charts in Appendix I as well as the extensive indexes and bibliography make the book a useful reference work. Any further treatment of West Semitic pantheons will have to take this study seriously and all who are interested in Near Eastern religion will consult this work with great profit. ; The Johns Hopkins Near Eastern Studies; 10.5 x 0.75 x 7.25 Inches; 236 pages

36 Barrett, Anthony A. AGRIPPINA Sex, Power, and Politics in the Early Empire
New Haven, CT, U.S.A. Yale University Press 1996 0300065981 / 9780300065985 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Very faint shelfwear to book else fine. DJ has light shelfwear now in mylar ; 330pp, 19 illustrations. Agrippina the Younger attained a level of power in first-century Rome unprecedented for a woman. According to ancient sources, she achieved her success by plotting against her brother, the emperor Caligula, murdering her husband, the emperor Claudius, and controlling her son, the emperor Nero, by sleeping with him. Modern scholars tend to accept this verdict. But in his dynamic biography-the first on Agrippina in English-Anthony Barrett paints a startling new picture of this influential woman. Drawing on the latest archaeological, numismatic, and historical evidence, Barrett argues that Agrippina has been misjudged. Although she was ambitious, says Barrett, she made her way through ability and determination rather than by sexual allure, and her political contributions to her time seem to have been positive. After Agrippina's marriage to Claudius there was a marked decline in the number of judicial executions and there was close cooperation between the Senate and the emperor; the settlement of Cologne, founded under her aegis, was a model of social harmony; and the first five years of Nero's reign, while she was still alive, were the most enlightened of his rule. According to Barrett, Agrippina's one real failing was her relationship with her son, the monster of her own making who had her murdered in horrific and violent circumstances. Agrippina's impact was so lasting, however, that for some 150 years after her death no woman in the imperial family dared assume an assertive political role. ; 330 pages

38 Batstone, William W. & Cynthia Damon CAESAR'S CIVIL WAR
Oxford University Press 2006 019516511X / 9780195165111 Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
Scholar's name to half-title (Robert Brown). Minor crease to spine. Light shelfwear. ; Caesar's Civil War, the story of the general's contest with the Pompeian party through nineteen months of civil war, is an unfinished masterpiece. The author abandoned it when he found himself living in a different world than that which saw its commencement. The narrative ends after Pompey's death, amidst the preliminaries to the Alexandrian war that initiated the next phase of the fight for primacy of Rome. The work shows the brilliance for which Caesar's oratory, like his generalship, was known: it was a political judgment, not a literary one, that relegated the Civil War to the file drawer. The primary topics covered in this introductory book are the generic background of Caesar's commentarii or notebooks; his selection of material; the contemporary context of the civil war; the literary techniques that carry the story; and the work's characterization and structure. General aids to the reader include maps to accompany the particular narrative events discussed, a timeline of Caesar's life and the civil war, explanations of technical terms of Roman history, and a section on Roman names and prominent persons of Caesar's time. ; Oxford Approaches to Classical Literature; 240 pages

DJ in mylar. ; 8vo; 106 pages; What were the reasons for the Roman revolution, wherein a republican form of government that had endured for centuries suddenly gave way, after civil war, to a dictatorship, which eventually dissolved under the peaceful sway of an autocratic principate? When did the process of change begin, what were its significant stages, and how are we to make sense of it? These are some of the questions addressed by two able scholars in this remarkably concise and accomplished survey of the history of the late Roman Republic. Setting themselves the challenging goal of making the first century comprehensible in twentieth-century terms, Mary Beard and Michael Crawford outline the factors that must be assessed for a proper understanding of the period-- from the attitudes of the aristocracy and the role of the state religion to the function of political institutions, and the reasons for imperial expansion. They offer no simple explanations, but instead supply a descriptive framework that clarifies a mass of conflicting and fragmentary evidence. Ideal for both introductory and graduate courses in the later Roman Republic, this book will make stimulating and provocative reading for anyone interested in the history of ancient Rome.

Faint crease to lower front corner else very light shelfwear. ; Au Ve siècle de notre ère, l’arrivée de peuplades barbares sur le territoire de l’Empire romain d’Occident modifie largement les rapports de force? : l’Empire doit désormais composer avec des partenaires sur son propre sol. Si la guerre permet encore des victoires dans la première moitié du siècle, la diplomatie est peu à peu privilégiée par les autorités impériales pour tenter d’éviter la dislocation de l’Empire face à l’essor de royaumes barbares sur son territoire ou ses frontières. Dans un monde désormais multipolaire où la puissance romaine n’est plus hégémonique, la figure de l’ambassadeur se révèle centrale. Le succès de ses missions diplomatiques dépend de ses capacités d’adaptation face à des interlocuteurs barbares, avec lesquels il faut dorénavant compter. Cette étude porte aussi bien sur les critères de choix des ambassadeurs, romains comme barbares, que sur l’élaboration de pratiques diplomatiques communes: comment et par qui les ambassadeurs étaient-ils désignés? ? Quelles étaient leurs compétences? ? Comment étaient-ils pris en charge lors de leurs missions? ? Comment les rencontres diplomatiques se déroulaient-elles et comment les traités étaient-ils conclus? ? L’enquête révèle en outre, le rôle de conseiller joué à la cour des rois barbares par les anciennes élites provinciales et l’influence qu’elles exercèrent ainsi sur les pratiques diplomatiques de ces rois. En s’intéressant à la manière dont les relations romano-barbares se construisent au Ve siècle, ce livre livre éclaire les origines de la diplomatie en Europe au Haut Moyen Age. ; Collections De L'Université De Strasbourg.

Franz Steiner Verlag 2014 3515108971 / 9783515108973 Paperback Fine 
Das Ausmaß der Teilhabe an der Herstellung kollektiv verbindlicher Entscheidungen ist ein wichtiges Kriterium bei der Analyse politischer Systeme. Das klassische Griechenland und insbesondere die attische Demokratie gelten vielen dabei als Beispiele für Gemeinwesen, in denen die Bürger starken Einfluss auf die Politik nehmen konnten. Gleichwohl waren die Möglichkeiten, an politischen Entscheidungen mitzuwirken, nicht unbeschränkt. Es gab auch hier Grenzen politischer Partizipation. Die Beiträge des Sammelbandes untersuchen beispielhaft an verschiedenen Gesellschaften des archaischen und klassischen Griechenlands Formen und Folgen der Exklusion vom politischen Entscheidungshandeln. Dabei steht im Zentrum der Beiträge die Frage, wie sich der Grad der Partizipationschance zur Legitimität der Entscheidung auf der einen, ihrer Qualität auf der anderen Seite verhielt. ; Alte Geschichte; 124 pages
