The End of the Roman Republic 146 to 44 BC : Conquest and Crisis, Hardback Book

The End of the Roman Republic 146 to 44 BC : Conquest and Crisis Hardback

Part of the The Edinburgh History of Ancient Rome series

Description

By 146, Rome had established itself as the leading Mediterranean power.

Over the next century, it consolidated its power into an immense territorial empire.

At the same time, the internal balance of power shifted dramatically, as a narrow ruling elite was challenged first by the rest of Italy, and then by military commanders, a process which culminated in the civil war between Pompeii and Caesar and the re-establishment of monarchy.

Catherine Steel tells the history of this crucial and turbulent century, focussing on the issues of freedom, honour, power, greed andambition, and the cherished but abused institutions of the Republic which were central to events then and which have preoccupied historians ever since.
