506 Roller, Matthew B. CONSTRUCTING AUTOCRACY Aristocrats and Emperors in Julio-Claudian Rome.
Princeton University Press 2001 Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
069105021X Gift inscription from author to R. E. Fantham. Light pencil marginalia to a few pages. Very light bump to top of spine. Minor creasing along top edge of DJ. ; Rome's transition from a republican system of government to an imperial regime comprised more than a century of civil upheaval and rapid institutional change. Yet the establishment of a ruling dynasty, centered around a single leader, came as a cultural and political shock to Rome's aristocracy, who had shared power in the previous political order. How did the imperial regime manage to establish itself and how did the Roman elites from the time of Julius Caesar to Nero make sense of it? In this compelling book, Matthew Roller reveals a "dialogical" process at work, in which writers and philosophers vigorously negotiated and contested the nature and scope of the emperor's authority, despite the consensus that he was the ultimate authority figure in Roman society. Roller seeks evidence for this "thinking out" of the new order in a wide range of republican and imperial authors, with an emphasis on Lucan and Seneca the Younger. He shows how elites assessed the impact of the imperial system on traditional aristocratic ethics and examines how several longstanding authority relationships in Roman society--those of master to slave, father to son, and gift-creditor to gift-debtor--became competing models for how the emperor did or should relate to his aristocratic subjects. By revealing this ideological activity to be not merely reactive but also constitutive of the new order, Roller contributes to ongoing debates about the character of the Roman imperial system and about the "politics" of literature. ; 296 pages; Signed by Author

511 Rosenstein, Nathan ROME AT WAR Farms, Families and Death in the Middle Republic
University of North Carolina Press 2004 Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
0807828394 Book is fine. DJ has very light shelfwear else fine. ; "Historians have long asserted that during and after the Hannibalic War, the Roman Republic's need to conscript men for long-term military service helped bring about the demise of Italy's small farms and that the misery of impoverished citizens then became fuel for the social and political conflagrations of the late republic. Nathan Rosenstein challenges this claim, showing how Rome reconciled the needs of war and agriculture throughout the middle republic. The key, Rosenstein argues, lies in recognizing the critical role of family formation. By analyzing models of families' needs for agricultural labor over their life cycles, he shows that families often had a surplus of manpower to meet the demands of military conscription. Did, then, Roman imperialism play any role in the social crisis of the later second century B. C. ? Rosenstein argues that Roman warfare had critical demographic consequences that have gone unrecognized by previous historians: heavy military mortality paradoxically helped sustain a dramatic increase in the birthrate, ultimately leading to overpopulation and landlessness.

512 Rosenstein, Nathan Stewart IMPERATORES VICTI Military Defeat and Aristocratic Competition in the Middle and Late Republic
University of California Press 1990 Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
0520069390 Book has publisher's bookplate to front inner cover (library of the University of California Press). Not Ex-library. Else book is fine. Very light shelfwear to DJ. Crease to rear DJ flap. ; Given the intense competition among aristocrats seeking public office in the middle and late Roman Republic, one would expect that their persistent struggles for honor, glory, and power could have seriously undermined the state or damaged the cohesiveness of the ruling class. Rome in fact depended on aristocratic competition, since no professional bureaucracy directed public affairs and no salary was attached to any public office. But as Rosenstein adeptly shows, competition appears to have been surprisingly limited, in ways that curtailed the possible destructive effects of all-out contests between individuals. Imperatores Victi examines one particularly striking case of such checks on competition. Military success at all times represented an abundant source of prestige and political strength at Rome. Generals who led armies to victory enjoyed a better-than-average chance of securing higher office upon their return from the field. Yet this study demonstrates that defeated generals were not barred from public office and in fact went on to win the Republic's most highly coveted and hotly contested offices in numbers virtually identical with those of their undefeated peers. Rosenstein explores how this unexpected limit to competition functions, reviewing beliefs about the religious origins of defeat, assumptions about common soldiers' duties in battle, and definitions of honorable behavior of an aristocrat during a crisis. These perspectives were instrumental in shifting the onus of failure away from a general's person and in offering positive strategies a general might use to win glory and respect even in defeat and to silence potential critics among a failed general's peers. Such limits to competition had an impact on the larger problems of stability and coherence in the Republic and its political elite; these larger problems are discussed in the concluding chapter. ; 9.5 x 1 x 6.5 Inches; 224 pages

515 Rowe, Greg PRINCES AND POLITICAL CULTURES The New Tiberian Senatorial Decrees
University of Michigan Press 2002 Fine in Fine dust jacket 
0472112309 208 pages; In 29 B. C. , Augustus celebrated a triple triumph flanked by his nephew Marcellus and his stepson Tiberius. This event is the first attested example of the systematic promotion of young men as potential imperial successors. This practice enabled Augustus to establish the rule not of one man but of a dynastic house with a collective identity. This study, built around the senate's funeral honors for Germanicus (the Tabula Siarensis) and its proceedings against his alleged murderer (the senatus consultum de Cn. Pisone patre) , examines Augustus's transformation of the Roman state to a dynastic monarchy. Covering the period from the reign of Augustus to Claudius's installation, Rowe demonstrates how dynastic monarchy turned citizens into subjects. Stepping back from personalities and politics to consider institutions and the values underpinning them, Rowe examines six key constituencies of the new order: the Roman senate, the equestrian order, the urban plebs, colonies, Greek cities, and the legions. Focusing on each group's deliberative and expressive institutions, he paints a coherent picture of early imperial culture, revealing the transition from formal to informal decision making and individual ascendancy over collective institutions. Rowe uses these findings to explain ostensible loyalism and the uniformity of imperial ideology. Texts, translations, and discussions of the major inscriptions of the period—both Greek and Latin—are provided.

For nearly a century scholars have consulted the edition of B. Maurenbrecher (1891-93). Continuing research on the period has produced material with a bearing on the interpretation of Sallust's text; in addition, several fragments not known to Maurenbrecher have subsequently been discovered. For this new translation, McGushin has freshly revised Maurenbrecher's placement and ordering of the fragments, and incorporated this newly discovered material. Together with a comprehensive introduction, he provides a detailed interpretation in the first full-length commentary on the work. ; Clarendon Ancient History Series; Vol. 2; 259 pages

533 Santangelo, Federico DIVINATION, PREDICTION AND THE END OF THE ROMAN REPUBLIC
Cambridge University Press 2013 Fine in Fine dust jacket 
1107026849 This book offers a comprehensive assessment of the intersection between Roman politics, culture and divination in the late Republic. It discusses how the practice of divination changed at a time of great political and social change and explores the evidence for a critical reflection and debate on the limits of divination and prediction in the second and first centuries BC. Divination was a central feature in the workings of the Roman government and this book explores the ways in which it changed under the pressure of factors of socio-political complexity and disruption. It discusses the ways in which the problem of the prediction of the future is constructed in the literature of the period. Finally, it explores the impact that the emergence of the Augustan regime had on the place of divination in Rome and the role that divinatory themes had in shaping the ideology of the new regime. ; 370 pages

548 Sealey, Raphael DEMOSTHENES AND HIS TIME A Study in Defeat
Oxford University Press 1993 Very Good with no dust jacket 
0195079280 Issued in laminated boards. Printed in the UK by Lightning Source UK. Appears to be later reprint. Not first edition. Corners bumped. Else Fine. ; 352 pages; This book draws on a wide range of evidence to study the history of Athens from 386 to 322 B.C. Taking a sympathetic view of the Second Athenian League, Sealey focuses on the career of Demosthenes to provide important insights into Athenian politics and policies. Demosthenes experienced repeated setbacks in his early attempts at public activity, but found his mission as a statesman in the conflict with Macedon and subsequently became the leading man in Athens. Sealey rejects theories that assume programmatic divisions among Athenian statesmen into pro- and anti-Macedonians, and argues that all Athenians active in politics resented Macedonian ascendancy but recognized the necessity of accommodation to superior power. His account concludes with the defeat of Athens and its allies and the suicide of Demosthenes, presenting new insights not only into the life of Demosthenes and the turbulent years of his political career, but also the social and international factors bearing on Athenian political activity in general.
