510 Riggsby, Andrew M. CAESAR IN GAUL AND ROME War in Words
University of Texas Press 2006 0292713037 / 9780292713031 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). Very light pencil marginalia to a few pages. Lower corners very lightly bumped. DJ has minor edgewear. ; Winner, AAP/PSP Award for Excellence, Classics and Ancient History, 2006 Anyone who has even a passing acquaintance with Latin knows "Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres" ("All Gaul is divided into three parts") , the opening line of De Bello Gallico, Julius Caesar's famous commentary on his campaigns against the Gauls in the 50s BC. But what did Caesar intend to accomplish by writing and publishing his commentaries, how did he go about it, and what potentially unforeseen consequences did his writing have? These are the questions that Andrew Riggsby pursues in this fresh interpretation of one of the masterworks of Latin prose. Riggsby uses contemporary literary methods to examine the historical impact that the commentaries had on the Roman reading public. In the first part of his study, Riggsby considers how Caesar defined Roman identity and its relationship to non-Roman others. He shows how Caesar opens up a possible vision of the political future in which the distinction between Roman and non-Roman becomes less important because of their joint submission to a Caesar-like leader. In the second part, Riggsby analyzes Caesar's political self-fashioning and the potential effects of his writing and publishing the Gallic War. He reveals how Caesar presents himself as a subtly new kind of Roman general who deserves credit not only for his own virtues, but for those of his soldiers as well. Riggsby uses case studies of key topics (spatial representation, ethnography, virtus and technology, genre, and the just war) , augmented by more synthetic discussions that bring in evidence from other Roman and Greek texts, to offer a broad picture of the themes of national identity and Caesar's self-presentation. ; 286 pages

German text. Contents include: Ordo und dignitas als soziale Kategorien der romischen Republik; Domus und res publica. Die politisch-soziale Bedeutung des aristokratischen "Hauses" in der spaten romischen Republik; Moderne und zeitgenossische Vorstellungen von der Gesellschaftsordnung der romischen Kaiserzeit; Seneca und Nero.

512 Robb, M. A. BEYOND POPULARES AND OPTIMATES Political Language in the Late Republic
Franz Steiner Verlag 2010 3515096434 / 9783515096430 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Historia - Einzelschriften 213; 225 pages; Modern interpretations of the late Roman Republic have been dominated by the twin concepts of 'populares' and 'optimates', commonly assumed to refer to two antithetical political categories. However, the definition of these groups is much debated: some historians see them as ideological movements or traditions, others as differences of political style and method. This book asks whether this debate may in fact be chasing a mirage. Through a detailed analysis of the usage of the two terms in Cicero and his close contemporaries, it is argued that they carried no clear political meaning. What emerges instead is a political language focused on the elite's fundamental concerns about internal divisions and the maintenance of aristocratic consensus.

514 Roberts, Jennifer Tolbert ATHENS ON TRIAL The Antidemocratic Tradition in Western Thought
Princeton University Press 1996 0691029199 / 9780691029191 Softcover Very Good+ 
Very Light shelfwear; Xviii, 405pp. The Classical Athenians were the first to articulate and implement the notion that ordinary citizens of no particular affluence or education could make responsible political decisions. For this reason, reactions to Athenian democracy have long provided a prime Rorschach test for political thought. Whether praising Athens's government as the legitimizing ancestor of modern democracies or condemning it as mob rule, commentators throughout history have revealed much about their own notions of politics and society. In this book, Jennifer Roberts charts responses to Athenian democracy from Athens itself through the twentieth century, exploring a debate that touches upon historiography, ethics, political science, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, gender studies, and educational theory. ; 405 pages

520 Roller, Matthew B. CONSTRUCTING AUTOCRACY Aristocrats and Emperors in Julio-Claudian Rome.
Princeton University Press 2001 069105021X / 9780691050218 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
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

524 Rosenstein, Nathan ROME AT WAR Farms, Families and Death in the Middle Republic
University of North Carolina Press 2004 0807828394 / 9780807828397 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
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.

525 Rosenstein, Nathan Stewart IMPERATORES VICTI Military Defeat and Aristocratic Competition in the Middle and Late Republic
University of California Press 1990 0520069390 / 9780520069398 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
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

528 Rowe, Greg Princes and Political Cultures The New Tiberian Senatorial Decrees
University of Michigan Press 2002 0472112309 / 9780472112302 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
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.

Oxford At the Clarendon Press 1994 0198721439 / 9780198721437 Paperback Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Foxing to top of textblock and top edge of DJ flaps. Else minor shelfwear. ; The period covered by Sallust's Histories--78-67 BC--forms part of one of the least well documented eras of the late Republic. 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

Franz Steiner Verlag 2009 351509167X / 9783515091671 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
506 pages; The imaginary subjects of the Roman writers Cicero and Sallust demonstrate how strongly the political culture of Rome was influenced by historical perception. Both authors derived the impulse for their political actions from the place within historical continuity at which they located themselves. Additionally, the impressive self-confidence with which they predicted the future success of the radical changes they proposed constitutes a clear indication of the unbroken capacity for learning and regeneration of the republican institutional system.

546 Santangelo, Federico DIVINATION, PREDICTION AND THE END OF THE ROMAN REPUBLIC
Cambridge University Press 2013 1107026849 / 9781107026841 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
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
