Summary:
"A Companion to the Roman Republic is a really exciting new resource. The contributors are individually heavy-hitters and collectively form a first-rate international team. The work covers not just the topics one would have counted on but other new ones that deserve to become canonical. I'm happy that this work is now available both for myself and for my students." -Andrew M. Riggsby, University of Texas, Austin "A comprehensive work … It far outstrips any competitor in this subject … I only wish it had been available when I was teaching the Late Republic." -John Murrell, Journal of Classics Teaching "A kaleidoscopic variety of points of views and insightful commentaries that finally does justice to the complexity of the subject and of its possible interpretations, while always remaining readable and clear." -Nicola Terrenato, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
