458 Ober, Josiah & Charles Hedrick (Eds. ) DEMOKRATIA A Conversation on Democracies, Ancient and Modern
Princeton University Press 1996 0691011087 / 9780691011080 Softcover Near Fine 
Very faint shelfwear else fine. ; This book is the result of a long and fruitful conversation among practitioners of two very different fields: ancient history and political theory. The topic of the conversation is classical Greek democracy and its contemporary relevance. The nineteen contributors remain diverse in their political commitments and in their analytic approaches, but all have engaged deeply with Greek texts, with normative and historical concerns, and with each others' arguments. The issues and tensions examined here are basic to both history and political theory: revolution versus stability, freedom and equality, law and popular sovereignty, cultural ideals and social practice. While the authors are sharply critical of many aspects of Athenian society, culture, and government, they are united by a conviction that classical Athenian democracy has once again become a centrally important subject for political debate. The contributors are Benjamin R. Barber, Alan Boegehold, Paul Cartledge, Susan Guettel Cole, W. Robert Connor, Carol Dougherty, J. Peter Euben, Mogens H. Hansen, Victor D. Hanson, Carnes Lord, Philip Brook Manville, Ian Morris, Martin Ostwald, Kurt Raaflaub, Jennifer Tolbert Roberts, Barry S. Strauss, Robert W. Wallace, Sheldon S. Wolin, and Ellen Meiksins Wood. ; 496 pages

Routledge 2010 0415874726 / 9780415874724 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Bottom corners slightly bumped else Fine. ; Routledge Studies in Ancient History, Vol. 1; 118 pages; This story of Cicero and the Catilinarian Conspiracy is set within and offers a case study of the political, military, economic and social crises besetting the late Roman Republic in the era of the "Roman Revolution." The book chronicles the efforts of the defeated radical politician Lucius Sergius Catilina to bring together a group of disaffected Roman nobles and discontented Italian farmers in a conspiracy to overthrow the republican government at Rome and to take control of the Italian peninsula (while the proconsul Pompey the Great and the majority of Roman military units were campaigning in the Near East) , and the success of the conservative optimate consul Marcus Tullius Cicero in uncovering the conspiracy, driving Catiline out of Rome, and defeating his revolutionary followers in the capital and in Etruria. The narrative reveals the political corruption, economic problems, and military instability which were leading to the demise of the republican system and the rise of an imperial government in the first century B. C. The author’s comprehensive knowledge of the ancient sources and the modern scholarship relevant to the last century of the republic has allowed him to offer a detailed and definitive account of this important episode in Roman history. In the same seamless combination of vivid narrative and historical analysis through which he enlightened the Roman imperial age of Constantine, Dr. Odahl here illuminates the Roman republican era of Cicero. This book is a significant publication in Ciceronian studies and will become the standard account of the Catilinarian Conspiracy.

463 Osmers, Maria "WIR ABER SIND DAMALS UND JETZT IMMER DIE GLEICHEN" Vergangenheitsbezüge in Der Polisübergreifenden Kommunikation Der Klassischen Zeit
Franz Steiner Verlag 2013 351510299X / 9783515102995 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Like new. ; Die Griechen bezogen sich in klassischer Zeit gern und häufig auf ihre Vergangenheit. Wurde jedoch in der Außenpolitik Geschichte als Argument verwendet, so schlug sich diese Strategie selten in den getroffenen Entscheidungen nieder. Um diesem Widerspruch nachzugehen, prüft Maria Osmers mit Hilfe eines kommunikationshistorischen Ansatzes, in welcher Weise und mit welcher Intention sich die Griechen in der Außenpolitik auf Vergangenes bezogen und welche Bedeutung sie den Verweisen zuschrieben. Der gewählte methodische Ansatz ermöglicht es, außenpolitische Kommunikationen in vielen unterschiedlichen Quellengattungen zu lokalisieren. Dabei zeigt sich die Vergangenheit als geeignetes Instrument, um aktuelle Interessen oder Konflikte auszuhandeln. In den aufgerufenen Erzählungen erfahren sich die Beteiligten als Abstammungsgemeinschaft. Gleichzeitig schafft die 'Geschichte' ein Koordinatensystem, in dem weiterführende Verhandlungen stattfinden können. Die Vergangenheit fungiert damit nicht für sich allein als stichhaltiges Argument, sondern chiffriert die erwünschten, eingeforderten bzw. Existenten außenpolitischen Zustände der griechischen Welt. ; Historia - Einzelschriften 226; 407 pages

Textual, linguistic and literary problems are discussed in so far as they relate to historical and historiographical understanding of Sallust's account. Sallust was indebted to Greek and Roman predecessors, as the commentary indicates. But he also set a new fashion in Roman historiography, as much by his sense of the realities of Roman public life as by the manner of his writing – a style which was later adopted and developed by Tacitus, the great historian of imperial Rome. ; ARCA Classical and Medieval Texts, Papers and Monographs 13; 276 pages

475 Pettinger, Andrew THE REPUBLIC IN DANGER Drusus Libo and the Succession of Tiberius
Oxford University Press 2012 0199601747 / 9780199601745 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very light shelfwear to DJ. ; The Republic in Danger offers a new interpretation of Roman political history for the years 6 BC to AD 16, focusing especially on the rise of Tiberius Caesar and his succession to Augustus, the founder of the Principate. The volume proposes a new and compelling model for understanding the end of Augustus' reign and the succession of Tiberius. While Tiberius' rise to supreme power was at the expense of Augustus' grandsons, who were all dead by the time Augustus was laid to rest, their supporters remained unconvinced that life was possible under the rule of Tiberius. The result was an alliance between the enemies of Tiberius and M. Scribonius Drusus Libo. Drusus Libo, an aristocrat connected to the house of the Caesar, committed suicide in AD 16 while on trial for treason. Pettinger argues that Drusus Libo's prosecution was due to his alliance with Tiberius' enemies who were planning to destroy his government and replace tyranny with republican democracy. Pettinger offers a comprehensive analysis of the struggle between Tiberius and the supporters of Augustus' grandsons, which has repercussions for our understanding of the creation of the Principate at Rome. ; 280 pages

477 Philippe, Akar CONCORDIA Un Idéal De La Classe Dirigeante Romaine à Lafin De La République
Publications De La Sorbonne 2013 2859447385 / 9782859447380 Paperback Very Good 
Stamps to textblock and first 2 pages "Service de Presse". ; Aux deux derniers siècles de la République, et surtout à partir des tribunats des Gracques, les membres de la classe dirigeante romaine utilisèrent la notion de concordia dans les débats qui les opposaient les uns aux autres. Par leurs discours, ils entreprenaient de garantir ou de restaurer les conditions nécessaires à cette concorde des citoyens, et surtout à celle des principaux d’entre eux, les aristocrates, dont l’histoire démontrait qu’elle avait été réalisée par les ancêtres. Dans un contexte de conflit civil, la notion de concordia devint un idéal, car elle était conçue comme la condition indispensable à l’exercice d’un pouvoir de type collégial, c’est-à-dire au maintien, à la tête d’un empire, d’un groupe, les sénateurs, dont l'égalité de puissance impliquait qu’ils s’entendissent pour un accès réglé au faîte des honneurs. Mais parce qu’il s’agissait d’un idéal commun à tous, et alors que les oppositions entre sénateurs se radicalisaient à la fin de la République, cette notion devint lelieu d’un conflit politique majeur lorsque la capacité d’un aristocrate à rétablir ou à maintenir la concorde fut considéré comme un critère décisif de légitimité. L’échec de ce modèle constitua une des évolutions qui conduisit alors au premier triumvirat, puis à la dictature de César, lorsque la concorde ne fut plus cet idéal commun à toute une aristocratie, mais ce que devait défendre une poignée d’entre eux, et finalement un seul.

487 Powell, Anton & Kathryn Welch (Eds. ) SEXTUS POMPEIUS
The Classical Press of Wales and Duckworth 2002 0715631276 / 9780715631270 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
1 corner lightly bumped else fine. Book has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; Classical Press of Wales; 200 pages; The son of Pompey the Great cast a long shadow. Acclaimed by the Roman populace in his lifetime, his traditional virtues and military successes put to shame his civil war rival Octavian. After his death, he was passionately and safely abused by Octavian and poets as a marginal nuisance, a pirate. The image of a `second rank' figure has been propagated into modern times by Syme and Zanker, but extensive ancient evidence makes possible a very different story. Here seven new studies from an international cast reconstruct a figure whose actions and image shaped not just the civil war period but also the character of the early principate.

489 Powell, Jonathan & Jeremy Paterson CICERO THE ADVOCATE
Oxford University Press 2004 0198152809 / 9780198152804 Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Very faint bump to 1 corner else fine. ; This is the first book in English to take Cicero's forensic speeches seriously as acts of advocacy, i. E. As designed to ensure that the person he represents is acquitted or that the person he is prosecuting is found guilty. It seeks to set the speeches within the context of the court system of the Late Roman Republic and to explore in detail the strategies available to Roman advocates to win the votes of jurors. The volume comprises a substantial introduction, fourteen chapters by prominent Ciceronian scholars in Britain, North America, and Germany, and a final chapter by a current British Appeal Court judge who comments on Cicero's techniques from the point of view of a modern advocate. The introduction deals with issues concerning the general nature of advocacy, the Roman court system as compared with other ancient and modern systems, the Roman "profession" of advocacy and its etiquette, the place of advocacy in Cicero's career, the ancient theory of rhetoric and argument as applied to courtroom advocacy, and the relationship between the published texts of the speeches as we have them and the speeches actually delivered in court. The first eight chapters discuss general themes: legal procedure in Cicero's time, Cicero's Italian clients, Cicero's methods of setting out or alluding to the facts of a case, his use of legal arguments, arguments from character, invective, self-reference, and emotional appeal, the last of these especially in the concluding sections of his speeches. Chapters 9-14 examine a range of particular speeches as case studies--In Verrem II.1 (from Cicero's only major extant prosecution case) , Pro Archia, De Domo Sua, Pro Caecina, Pro Cluentio, Pro Ligario. These speeches cover the period of the height of Cicero's career, from 70 BC, when Cicero became acknowledged as the leading Roman advocate, to 49 BC when Caesar's dictatorship required Cicero to adapt his well-tried forensic techniques to drastically new circumstances, and they contain arguments on a wide range of subject-matter, including provincial maladministration, usurpation of citizenship rights, violent dispossession, the religious law relating to the consecration of property, poisoning, bribery, and political offences. Other speeches, including all the better-known ones, are used as illustrative examples in the introduction and in the more general chapters. An appendix lists all Cicero's known appearances as an advocate. ; 460 pages

492 Raaflaub, Kurt A. (Ed. ) SOCIAL STRUGGLES IN ARCHAIC ROME New Perspectives on the Conflict of Orders
University of California Press 1986 0520055284 / 9780520055285 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Book has very light rubbing to textblock else fine. DJ has minor shelfwear and tiny stain. ; The history of early republican Rome was marked by a long series of social and political struggles between the patrician elite and the plebeians (often called the 'Conflict of the Orders'). Its results helped Rome achieve the internal integration needed to conquer and rule the Mediterranean world. Despite its fundamental significance, this process is difficult to understand because contemporaneous evidence is scarce and later literary sources present a gravely deformed picture. In Social Struggles in Archaic Rome, experts from both sides of the Atlantic illuminate the history of these social conflicts-examining their causes and nature; analysing a wide range of social, economic, legal, religious, military, and political aspects; and considering the reliability of the historical sources. Constributions by T. J. Cornell, R. Develin, W. Eder, J. Linderski, R. E. Mitchell, A. Momigliano, K. A. Raaflaub, J. - C. Richard, M. Toher, and J. Von Ungern-Sternberg. ; 489 pages
