251 Habinek, Thomas N. THE POLITICS OF LATIN LITERATURE Writing, Identity, and Empire in Ancient Rome
Princeton University Press 1998 0691068275 / 9780691068275 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
From the library of R. E. Fantham. Pen notes to 1 pages. A few pages with pencil and underlining. Light rubbing and faint soiling to DJ. ; This is the first book to describe the intimate relationship between Latin literature and the politics of ancient Rome. Until now, most scholars have viewed classical Latin literature as a product of aesthetic concerns. Thomas Habinek shows, however, that literature was also a cultural practice that emerged from and intervened in the political and social struggles at the heart of the Roman world. Habinek considers major works by such authors as Cato, Cicero, Horace, Ovid, and Seneca. He shows that, from its beginnings in the late third century b. C. To its eclipse by Christian literature six hundred years later, classical literature served the evolving interests of Roman and, more particularly, aristocratic power. It fostered a prestige dialect, for example; it appropriated the cultural resources of dominated and colonized communities; and it helped to defuse potentially explosive challenges to prevailing values and authority. Literature also drew upon and enhanced other forms of social authority, such as patriarchy, religious ritual, cultural identity, and the aristocratic procedure of self-scrutiny, or existimatio. Habinek's analysis of the relationship between language and power in classical Rome breaks from the long Romantic tradition of viewing Roman authors as world-weary figures, aloof from mundane political concerns--a view, he shows, that usually reflects how scholars have seen themselves. The Politics of Latin Literature will stimulate new interest in the historical context of Latin literature and help to integrate classical studies into ongoing debates about the sociology of writing. ; 248 pages

261 Hammond, N. G. L. PHILIP OF MACEDON
Duckworth 1994 0715626043 / 9780715626047 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket has very minor shelfwear else Fine; 248 pages; Philip of Macedon was one of the extraordinary figures of antiquity. Inheriting a kingdom near collapse, he left to his son Alexander the strongest state in Eastern Europe. He developed new military technology and made Macedonia the greatest power in the Western world. He created a united, multiracial kingdom based on liberal principles--and added to it the resources of a Balkan empire. Most important, he inspired the city-states of the Greek peninsula to form a unified community, ensuring peace among its members, the rule of law in internal politics, and collective security in the face of agressors. No statesman in Europe had ever achieved so much. In Philip of Macedon N. G. L. Hammond presents a narrative history of Hellenistic Macedonia from the state's rise out of obscurity under Philip to the accession of Alexander. Focusing on the character and career of Philip, Hammond discusses developments in military technology and strategy, the social composition and geography of northern Greece, and the region's political developments. He also examines the world of the city-states, the nature of their democracies, their propensity for interstate warfare, and their development of capitalism, scientific methods, and philosophical ideas. With close analysis of the literary and material evidence--including interpretations of recent archaeological discoveries--Hammond offers a unique portrait of Philip as a Macedonian. Including illustrations of the frescoes and artifacts found in the Royal Tombs at Vergina in 1977, the book also reveals the culture and artistry of the Macedonian people who made Philip's success possible.

266 Hansen, Mogens Herman; (translated by J. A. Crook) THE ATHENIAN DEMOCRACY IN THE AGE OF DEMOSTHENES Structure, Principles, and Ideology
Blackwell Publishers 1992 0631180176 / 9780631180173 Softcover Very Good 
Creasing to spine. Light creasing to wraps. Minor shelfwear. ; The Ancient World; 410 pages; When democratic rule was ended by the conquering Macedonians in 322, the Athenians had evolved principles and practice of democratic ideology that became the direct inspiration of those liberal ideas cherished by the Western world in the 19th and 20th centuries. Mogens Hansen examines Athenian democracy both as a political system and as an ideology. In describing the former he distinguished between the three major decision-making organs - the Assembly, the Legislators and the Peoples Courts, and the magistrates who were responsible both for preparing the agenda for the legislature and for carrying its decisions into effect. In discussing Athenian democratic ideology Dr Hansen also makes the important distinction between the ideals held by the democrats themselves and those imputed to them by the critics of democracy, principally (and ironically, given that they would barely have survived under any other system) the philosophers. The Athenians conceived liberty both as the ability to participate in the decision-making process, and as the right to live without oppression from the state or other citizens. Equality was conceived not as an equality of nature, but as an equality of opportunity. "The Athenian Democracy in the Age of Demosthenes" is based on more than 30 years sustained research.

275 Hedrick, Jr. , Charles W. HISTORY AND SILENCE Purge and Rehabilitation of Memory in Late Antiquity
University of Texas Press 2000 0292731213 / 9780292731219 Hardcover Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ has some shelfwear and light soiling. ; Xxvi, 338pp. The ruling elite in ancient Rome sought to eradicate even the memory of their deceased opponents through a process now known as damnatio memoriae. These formal and traditional practices included removing the person's name and image from public monuments and inscriptions, making it illegal to speak of him, and forbidding funeral observances and mourning. Paradoxically, however, while these practices dishonoured the person's memory, they did not destroy it. Indeed, a later turn of events could restore the offender not only to public favour but also to re-inclusion in the public record. This book examines the process of purge and rehabilitation of memory in the person of Virius Nicomachus Flavianus (? -394). Charles Hedrick describes how Flavian was condemned for participating in the rebellion against the Christian emperor Theodosius the Great - and then restored to the public record a generation later as members of the newly Christianised senatorial class sought to reconcile their pagan past and Christian present. By selectively remembering and forgetting the actions of Flavian, Hedrick argues, the Roman elite honoured their ancestors while participating in profound social, cultural, and religious change. ; 338 pages

Light shelfwear. Spine ends are slightly rounded.

Drawing on contemporary literary sources and inscriptions as well as anthropology, sociology, and comparative evidence from other times, he shows that xenia was a bond of fictitious kinship akin to godparenthood, rather than a tie of hospitality or ordinary 'friendship'. Starting off from this proposition, he develops a dynamic model of the formation of elite relationships and values. He explores the concepts of obligation and loyalty, gift and bribe, treason and patriotism, and places the Greek city within a new context of power relations. This book, which assumes no knowledge of Greek, will be of interest to students and teachers of ancient history and classics. It will also appeal to social and political scientists.; Signed by Author

By making the region, rather than the actions of any one power the central focus of the study, Heskel aims to fill in the gaps left by previous writers on the subject.

Unsealed in plastic wrap. ; German Edition; 344 pages; English summary: The nobility of the "classical" republic was the particular, specifically Roman-republican version of a "political class," which had first evolved in a most historically complex process in the course of the 4th century BCE. This process, its stages and the web of internal and external impulses which drove them, the structural, social, institutional and also cultural conditions and (not least) their specific interdependence and mutual contingency are the theme of this study. The new edition has been expanded with an introductory essay over the themes and tendencies of recent research and also an appendix with appendix covering the years 1986-2011. German description: Die Nobilitat der ,klassischen' Republik war die besondere, spezifisch romisch-republikanische Variante einer ,politischen Klasse', die sich erst im Laufe des 4. Jh. v. Chr. in einem hochst komplexen historischen Prozess herausgebildet hat. Dieser Prozess, seine Stadien und das Geflecht der inneren und ausseren Impulse, die ihn vorantrieben, die strukturellen sozialen, institutionellen und auch kulturellen Voraussetzungen und nicht zuletzt ihre spezifische Interdependenz und gegenseitige Bedingtheit sind das Thema dieser Studie.Die Neuauflage ist um einen einleitenden Essay uber Themen und Tendenzen der jungeren Forschung sowie einen Anhang mit Addenda 1986-2011 erweitert worden. xxxiii, 344p (Franz Steiner Verlag 2011)

299 Horst, Claudia MARC AUREL
Franz Steiner Verlag 2013 3515102809 / 9783515102803 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Marc Aurel ist als "Philosoph auf dem Kaiserthron" in die Geschichte eingegangen. Die Frage, inwieweit es ihm gelungen ist, Philosophie und Politik miteinander zu vereinbaren, behandelt Claudia Horst nicht als ein biographisches, sondern erstmals als ein strukturgeschichtliches Problem. Die Beschäftigung mit der Philosophie erlebte zur Zeit Marc Aurels eine Konjunktur. Doch war es nicht die kontemplative Auseinandersetzung um inhaltliche Fragen, die hierbei im Vordergrund stand. Die Kultur der Römischen Kaiserzeit, die sog. Zweite Sophistik, stellte sich vielmehr als ein zentraler Kommunikationsraum zwischen dem Kaiser und den gebildeten städtischen Eliten dar, in dem kulturelle Bedingungen des Zusammenlebens ebenso wie Machtfragen verhandelt wurden. Für Marc Aurel war die Philosophie ein entscheidendes Medium der politischen Integration. Durch sie ist es ihm letztlich gelungen, das Akzeptanzdefizit seitens der Aristokratie, das die Stabilität seiner Herrschaft stets bedrohte, zu überwinden und Vertrauen zu generieren. ; Historia - Einzelschriften 225; 232 pages
